New Global Coalition Responds with 1 Million+ Face Shields and Counting

For Immediate Release - April 22, 2020

HEBRON, KY (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — FiberShield.org, a new international coalition of paper and packaging companies, founded by Ed Zumbiel of Zumbiel Packaging, Hebron, Kentucky and Andreas Keller, of Pawi, Switzerland, in response to the PPE shortage, has, in less than a month manufactured more than 1 million face shields to help protect those on the frontlines fighting COVID-19.

Ed Zumbiel reports that the majority of those shields have been donated to medical professionals and first responders. Production continues and will until there is no longer a need. The FiberShield organization has grown quickly and now counts more than 50 paper and packaging member companies worldwide.

This all began when Ed Zumbiel heard about 3D printed shields being produced to help medical professionals in New York City – but production was limited to only 5,000 units daily. Ed Zumbiel knew Zumbiel Packaging could produce an effective, single-use shield in much greater quantities – literally thousands more per hour.

To encourage widespread participation Zumbiel and Pawi have donated the patent-pending technical specifications, royalty-free for the face shields through 2020, to any packaging company willing to donate the first 100,000 units. Ed Zumbiel reports several coalition members have already far exceeded the minimum donation requirement.

For more information about the coalition or how to order face shields visit fibershield.org or contact Ed Zumbiel at ezumbiel@zumbiel.com
