MORRISSON — Several Northwest Illinois businesses, including Halo Branded Solutions,


Wahl Clipper and Sterling Medical, have produced personal protective equipment to distribute to the healthcare sector.


Halo Branded Solutions worked with its suppliers to produce face masks, gowns and hand sanitizers. The company distributed $45 million worth of facemasks from suppliers in Honduras


and Tennessee.


Wahl Clipper engineers at its Sterling headquarters have designed and tested a unique one-piece face shield, named the “C19 Protect.” Over 100,000 face shields were made and distributed to KSB Hospital in Dixon by mid-April. The face shields are only available to tax exempt organizations, as Wahl Clipper will not engage in sales to distribution or resellers.
