Since the Coronavirus outbreak earlier this year, many SEMA-member companies have shifted their typical operations to help combat COVID-19. SEMA has recognized and promoted the efforts of more than a dozen companies over the past couple of months by highlighting details in a running list on its website. Following are the most recent companies to join the list, which can be found at (LINK).
Bosch: Bosch has turned its hand to the fully automated production of face masks. Following a coordinated ramp-up that will run until the end of June, the company will make more than half a million masks a day on five production lines at four locations worldwide.
Fab Fours/4WP: Fab Fours donated 200 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) sneeze guards to 4Wheel Parts stores.
PPE Diesel: PPE Diesel is providing automotive parts and service to first responders, healthcare professionals, automotive repair shops and people who rely on their vehicles to get to the pharmacy or grocery store.
Safelite: Safelite donated medical supplies to two local Columbus, Ohio, hospitals: Nationwide Children’s and OhioHealth. Each hospital received 200,000 latex gloves and 1,000 N95 face masks.
SEMA members who have altered operations or donated medical supplies in response of COVID-19 are encouraged to submit their news to the association. As the industry’s trade association, SEMA is committed to providing services and information to help members all year long, but especially in times of critical need such as now. Companies may be highlighted in a variety of ways, including social media, SEMA publications and press releases.
