HP Canada Partners With Federal Government To Supply 540,000 3D Printed Face Shields

As Canada seeks support from partners nationally and abroad to establish a stable supply of much needed personal protective equipment (PPE), HP recently announced their partnership with the federal government to supply 540,000 3DP face shields in an effort to help battle the COVID-19 pandemic. This partnership marks the largest coordinated effort to establish a domestic supply chain for critical PPE at this scale. The face shields have been approved by Health Canada. 

HP Canada and its Digital Manufacturing Partner Network are mobilizing their 3D printing teams, technology, experience, and production capacity to fulfil the growing demand for supplies.

Just under a dozen small and medium businesses who specialize in 3D Printing across the country are using HP’s industry-leading 3D printing technology to manufacture face shields for Canada’s front-line workers that began shipping out last week.
