Made in USA and Canada Clear Plastic Folding Box Maker, Now a Leader in Clear Plastic Face Shield Production

Printex Transparent Packaging (PTP) quickly pivoted production to ship over 10 million shields in the last 2.5 months in response to the critical PPE shortage during COVID-19! PTP immediately started retooling to respond and manufacture Face Shields in the first week of March! As the largest manufacturer of clear folding plastic boxes (Acetate boxes as some people call them) in North America, it was a simple decision ­“‑‑‑ utilize our clear recyclable PET material, reallocate our resources and our expertise in clear plastic converting to make protective face splash guards”. The fast turnaround of production from clear folding boxes to clear face shields is indicative of how Printex Transparent Packaging serves its valued packaging clients, quickly and responsively! PTP made it a priority to help protect our front line workers, donating thousands of shields and now also protect the general population as we try to phase into returning to work and normal life after emergency COVID-19 measures.

Printex Transparent Packaging’s Face Shield is:

  • Licensed as a Class 1 Medical Device – MDEL 12157
  • FDA Approved under EUA 4132020
  • Is Reusable and Recyclable

With locations in the Toronto area, NY and Montreal, they are also featured on the Thomas COVID-19 Response System with other North American suppliers manufacturing critical emergency supplies. The high volume of Face Shields produced by Printex Transparent Packaging makes them one of the Top North American Face Shield Suppliers. To read more about PTP’s contributions, please read them being featured on NewsWire’s Press Release: Plastic Folding Box Manufacturer converts to leading Face Shield Manufacturer.

As businesses now try to re-open, Printex Transparent Packaging is also contributing to the fight against COVID-19 with the manufacture of clear disposable face shields that attach to Bump Caps.  PTP not only developed and produced millions of their own Face Shields, but also manufactures just the clear face shield component without any strap or headband for other face shield manufacturing and assembly companies. With all of Printex Transparent Packaging’s experience printing on clear plastic for folding cartons, it’s an easy transition to print logos or advertising on the face shields as well.
