LAI International, Aerospace Manufacturer Shifts Operations to Produce PPE
LAI International, Inc., a Baltimore County-based aerospace manufacturer, is lending a hand in the fight against COVID-19. According to Technical.ly, the company shifted operations to produce face shields for local healthcare professionals. The company received funding from the Maryland Department of Commerce’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Manufacturing Fund to pivot to production of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and collaborated with MedStar Union Memorial Hospital and LifeBridge Sinai Hospital in Baltimore for clinical testing. “Just showing that we’re doing the small part that we could possibly do was a feel-good story for the whole entire shop,” said LAI International CEO Marlon Johnson.
