Kia Brings Masks to Georgia

By Staff Writer April 27, 2020 284

In response to a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) caused by the pandemic, Kia Motors has delivered an initial supply of 15,000 face shields to the Georgia Emergency Management Agency.

“Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia asked how they could help, and then stepped up to provide life-saving equipment for the heroes on the front lines in the battle against COVID-19,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner, Pat Wilson. “We thank Kia once again for being such a strong partner in our Georgia-made family.”  

Face shields are being assembled by paid volunteers from KMMG, which has implemented a series of safety measures to protect team members, including facial temperature scans, providing face masks and gloves, and staggering workstations. Kia will gradually increase its face-shield production, ultimately reaching a capacity of 200,000 units per month, in support of donations the company has scheduled over the next several weeks to medical facilities in Southern California and New York. Face-shield production is the latest extension of Kia's Accelerate the Good.
