ABC-WLOS visited SylvanSport to gain a better understanding of why CEO, Tom Dempsey, is personally motivated to produce and supply PPE.
From ABC-WLOS: A manufacturing company widely known for its outdoor products like campers and tents is now changing its focus to help in the coronavirus crisis.
SylvanSport is now making face shields for first responders and hospitals throughout Western North Carolina. It’s also making foot-operated door openers, face shields, and portable sneeze shields for counter tops.
Founder and CEO Tom Dempsey said his background as a former FDA approved medical device manufacturer made the company ideally suited to make the change.
