Back to COVID-19 – What you need to know

Fluid Energy

Fluid Energy is a leading innovator in developing low-hazard, technically advanced chemical systems that are safer and more environmentally friendly. To meet the growing demand for medical supplies, Fluid Energy knew Canada would have to start producing them domestically. The company began thinking of ways to shift the production from chemical systems to hand sanitizers.

With the help of HSBC, Fluid Energy was able to secure resources to make hand sanitizer products that were safe for both consumers and front-line workers. Within three days of the initial call from the Canadian Government, Fluid Energy successfully obtained an NPN site license and product approval. The company has now supplied over 7 million litres of hand sanitizer to the population to help protect Canadians against COVID-19.

Under Armour is leaning in to stop the spread of COVID-19 by donating its designs, facilities, equipment and teammates’ time. To support healthcare and related organizations, housing/community agencies, human services including Johns Hopkins Health, University Maryland Medical System, LifeBridge Health, MedStar Health and more, the sports performance brand has shifted production at its UA Lighthouse innovation hub to manufacture essential PPE including its one-piece, no sew origami face mask and isolation gowns.

More than 50 Under Armour teammates, from materials scientists to apparel designers, came together in March to design a one-piece, no sew mask to provide a barrier between the wearer and those around them. A design that could be produced very quickly and in mass volumes. To date, Under Armour is projected to supply nearly 5 million masks and 4 million gowns.
