Truck Hero has announced that five of the company’s manufacturing facilities have been retooled and are now producing personal protective equipment (PPE).
Truck Hero facilities located in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Howe, Indiana; Nashville, Tennessee; Lawrenceville, Georgia and Yankton, South Dakota, will aid in COVID-19 efforts by producing face masks, face shields, isolation gowns and plastic barriers. This PPE will primarily support frontline healthcare workers in local communities, including Henry Ford Hospital, Lutheran Medical Group, Parkview Medical Group, Northside Hospital Group and FEMA. Truck Hero facility employees and other critical infrastructure workers will also leverage some of the PPE items, like face masks, for a safe and healthy work environment.
Truck Hero and the company’s family of brands are classified as critical infrastructure by the Department of Homeland Security in the Critical Manufacturing Sector of Transportation Equipment Manufacturing to support the needs of the sector and beyond. Many of Truck Hero’s existing products support the transportation equipment needs of law enforcement, medical transport, fire safety personnel and many other critical businesses.
