AMEXCI and Region Sörmland joined forces in early March due to COVID-19 to deal with the increasing lack of personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. The work has been undergoing since – in partnership with HITAB, JiHå Plast, and Prototal and with contributions from EOS GmbH and Evonik.

More than half a million face covers have been supplied to regions in need of protective equipment during the spring. Region Sörmland is the reference partner in the development of the product made from a 3D printed holder and a face shield.
