NAACAM has partnered with Proudly South African to provide a marketplace for local manufacturers of face shields. Listing manufacturers on this new portal allows buyers to source locally-made face shields and visors. Using the portal, buyers can source local suppliers in the knowledge that they are buying local and that the face shields adhere to the published regulations.
NAACAM supported the National Medical Equipment PPE Local Manufacturing Partnership, with Commercial Director, Shivani Singh, leading the face shield workstream. The workstream sought to identify and support local suppliers of face shields to meet the requirements of the published guidelines, in an effort to ensure that they are well-placed to support public and private sector procurement requirements. Many of the manufacturers of the face shields originate in the automotive component sector, as they have the embedded capabilities and expertise to produce the face shields at scale, and at a competitive price.
