Using UW Makerspace design, company pivots production to produce and donate face shields
KOHLER, Wis., May 1, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Kohler Co., a global leader in kitchen and bath products and power systems, has pivoted design resources and manufacturing capabilities to produce and donate face shields for medical personnel battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with several other companies, Kohler’s Innovation for Good team has partnered with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Makerspace program, which created a mask design to produce and, in turn, has helped connect medical facilities in need of protective equipment with the companies producing them.
The brand recently announced a $5 million donation to help companies that are making protective gear used by first responders, such as masks and gloves. In Japan, where Aflac is also a leader in the supplemental insurance space, it made a similar contribution of ¥500 million.
"Aflac’s brand was strong before the pandemic, it is strong now and we expect it to be even stronger in the future," said Mitchell, explaining Alflac’s marketing strategy in a post-pandemic world.
