Radians, a manufacturer of eye and ear protection for shooters and hunters, has joined the growing ranks of firearm-industry manufacturers leveraging their resources and facilities to help slow the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has donated over 14,000 N95 masks to its hometown of Memphis. According to Wes Miller, director of sales for Radians’ Sporting Goods channel, “We’re thankful for our first responders and glad that Radians can lend a helping hand during the crisis.”
In a prescient move, though the full scale of its importance could not have been fully grasped at the time, Radians added the N95 respirator to its PPE portfolio in 2018. “We knew that adding N95 respirators to our portfolio was important,” said Radians president, Bill England, “but with the COVID-19 pandemic, they have become a critical PPE item to help protect those with the highest risk of exposure. We’re happy that Radians is able to make this donation in our hometown, which has a very large medical community including St. Jude, Le Bonheur and UT Medical.” For more information on the company and their efforts, check out radians.com.
