Toyota Starts Making Medical Face Shields Against COVID-19
Toyota Motor Corporation joins Mitsubishi and Nissan in the full-scale production of medical face shields in Japan.
Toyota which was producing face shields to the tune of 500 to 600 units per week has boosted their output to 2,000 units per day or roughly 40,000 units per month. Plans are underway to further increase this to 70,000 units per month. Affiliated companies including Daihatsu and Hino have all started trial production as well.
Moving forward, Toyota intends to prioritize the provision of the medical face shields it produces to medical facilities and local governments in the localities of the various companies of the group.
