Wabtec Building Shields for Health Care Workers

April 10, 2020

Pittsburgh-based Wabtec Corporation said it and Tronix3D are working to manufacture face shields for health care workers in Pennsylvania.

In a news release, the company said Tronix3D is designing the shields at its facility in Mt. Pleasant while Wabtec workers are assembling them in at its Grove City plant.

Some components for the shields are being created by Wabtec at its Erie plant.

The shields will be used by workers at the Excela Health network in western Pennsylvania.

The news release said the two companies designed the face shields for fast and easy assembly in order to expedite their delivery.

Both companies are donating labor to produce the face shields and said they plan to produce 1,000 shields per week.
