Protecting front-line workers, one face-shield at a time

NewMakeIt Face Shields

Today, Aurora-Newmarket MP Tony Van Bynen and Newmarket Mayor John Taylor accepted a donation of face shields from NewMakeIt representative Simon Watkinson. To date, NewMakeIt has crafted and donated 260, 3D printed face shields.

NewMakeIt is a digital innovation hub, makerspace and interactive training and co-working facility. They have retooled lasers, 3D printers and CNC router to produce personal protective equipment components. With the generous donation of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic from the Newmarket Public Library, and an army of volunteers, NewMakeIt is on track to produce 20,000 face shields.
