As the Covid-19 virus continues to spread across the U.S. placing strain on our already overextended healthcare system, Superfeet has opened its doors to help those needing immediate access to 3D printers and/or production facilities to shore up short-term medical supply demand.
Superfeet and its sister company Flowbuilt Manufacturing are hoping to contribute to the safety of the medical professional and first responder communities by opening up capacity on their HP MultiJet Fusion printers and setting up a manufacturing line for producing medical equipment.
Superfeet is asking anyone in need of supplies to combat the virus to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to determine if they can be of assistance.
“The men and women who are our first line of defense when it comes to fighting COVID-19 are facing shortages of the protective gear necessary to keep them safe. We immediately looked at our machines and our team and knew we could do more to help,” said John Rauvola, CEO and President at Superfeet. “We’ve already started the process of prototyping several pieces for medical equipment with our 3D printers and are ready to help create solutions for those in need.”
Superfeet is headquartered in Ferndale, WA and 100-percent employee-owned. A manufacturer of custom insoles, the company is channeling its capacity to help fight the spread of Covid-19.
