Aurora, Illinois-based INEOS Styrolution, which makes polymer products, including an ECO line with recycled content, has donated face shields to health care workers in the United States. The firm says it also has made a $10,000 donation to Chicago area food banks.

Sourcing supplies through its customer Primex Plastics Corp., INEOS Styrolution says it delivered the personal protection equipment (PPE) to workers in hospitals in New York City, Chicago and surrounding suburbs, and the Navajo Nation community in Arizona.

Carina Johannessen, a registered nurse at the Edward Hospital emergency room, in Naperville, Illinois, comments, “Thank you INEOS Styrolution so much for your generous donation in helping us stay safe and healthy at Edward Hospital. The community support is so very appreciated by us all. It is a difficult time for the front lines and knowing that our local companies have our backs (and our faces) means so much to us. Not only does it protect us, it provides peace of mind while we work.”
