DENSO to Donate Nearly 2,000 N95 Masks to Hospitals in Michigan, North Carolina
Southfield, Mich. (March 26, 2020) – DENSO is donating nearly 2,000 N95 masks to support health care workers in Michigan and North Carolina responding to COVID-19.
“As the COVID-19 outbreak proliferates, DENSO is continuously evaluating ways it can help reduce the virus’ spread,” said Kenichiro Ito, executive officer of DENSO Corporation and chief executive officer of DENSO’s North American headquarters. “This donation is a small representation of our tremendous appreciation and gratitude for those who need these masks the very most. We commend the selfless health care workers who are on the front lines responding to the virus.”
DENSO’s North American headquarters in Southfield, Michigan, is providing over 1,600 of the respirators to Ascension Providence Hospital-Southfield while its thermal manufacturing facility in Battle Creek is giving 300 to Bronson Battle Creek Hospital.
DENSO’s Greenville, North Carolina, facility also is donating a small number of the masks to Vident Medical Center, based locally.
DENSO owns such masks to protect employees in sensitive lab and production environments.
DENSO locations across North America, which have already enacted stringent safety measures to help protect employees, are currently looking into additional opportunities with industry and government partners in which they can further support the broader fight against COVID-19.
The company is committed to sharing resourceful and timely information during this challenging time, and will give more updates as available.
