To help alleviate shortages of critical medical supplies during coronavirus pandemic, Seamus Golf of Beaverton, Ore., shifts gears
Retooled: Seamus Golf has re-engineered its manufacturing facility in Beaverton, Ore., to produce equipment of another kind: masks for first-responders. With doctors, nurses and other health-care professionals facing dire shortages of critical equipment in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Seamus Golf has answered the call to shift its manufacturing, according to GeoffShackelford.com. The company usually produces fine woolen accessories such as headcovers and other wares for golfers. Now, according to a notice posted to its website, the company is using its existing supply of material and practicing social distancing in its manufacturing process to make surgical masks. The effort is two-fold: to fill a critical void in the nation’s health-care supply chain and to keep Seamus (pronounced SHAY-mus) Golf’s employees on the job.
