Known for producing a line of leather handgun holsters, belts and other firearm-related gear, Versacarry has begun the process of converting its facility to help in the fight against the COVID-19 virus. The retooled facilities will produce face shields and face masks to protect medical professionals, instead of the company's namesake holsters.

“When I saw and heard numerous reports that there was a critical shortage of face shields and face masks for medical and emergency workers, I knew that was something we could help with," said Justin Sitz CEO/owner of Versacarry. “I redirected our development engineers from working on new products for the gun industry, to develop products and production methods to produce these items critical for health-care and emergency-response workers.”

In less than a week, Versacarry has switched the focus of their production, and will be shipping face masks and face shields shortly. With weekly output expected at 20,000+ of each item, these will be sent to the front line of this pandemic and into the hands of hospital personnel, EMTs, police officers, firefighters and others facing the COVID-19 virus on a daily basis.
