Markisol supports healthcare by manufacturing protective visors
Markisol, the leading manufacturer of blinds, is adapting parts of its production capacity to support healthcare and the urgent need for protective visors due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The production of the visors will take place at Markisol’s subsidiary Accenta Plast in Sweden. Accenta Plast are specialists in plastic injection moulding and supply plastic parts to various industries.
“Due to the urgent need for protective visors within healthcare at present, we have decided to adapt parts of our production capacity to the manufacture of visors. We want to help as best we can, and we have both the expertise and the equipment required. We have therefore developed new moulds for the manufacture of protective visors in injection-moulded polypropylene and PET”, says Markisol’s Group CEO Mats Johansson.
“We have seen that many companies are supporting healthcare with 3D printing, which is good, although it is a technology with quite limited capacity. We, on the other hand, have the capacity to make around 5,000 visors per day. Furthermore, if the need increases or we receive international enquiries, we can double our capacity within a week”, concludes Mats Johansson.
