From the Judges’ Award to the COVID-19 Community Response Award, below is an overview of the awards JohnsByrne earned at this year’s PPC Competition:

COVID-19 Community Response Award: Face Shield

This year, the PPC had noticed members straying from their usual business model and helping out during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, they created a new category award, Community Response. This award recognizes members who have worked to help fight COVID-19.

At the start of the pandemic, JohnsByrne was made aware of the severe shortage of personal protection equipment that left essential workers at risk. Our experts worked to help provide a solution and by designing and manufacturing our own protective face shields for those working on the frontline. Our face shields are reusable and easy to sanitize. This design was the result of the collaboration from our structural design team, who shifted from our usual focus to help the first responders at-risk during this time.
