Memory Pilot Retools to Help Meet PPE Demand 2

Memory Pilot is joining the wave of mountain bike companies that are shifting gears to help protect those that care for us.

Memory Pilot Retools to Help Meet PPE Demand

Goleta, CA—Memory Pilot announces they have begun production on protective face shields to help alleviate the lack of products available to medical staff and essential workers dealing with the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Memory Pilot, normally known as a manufacturer of custom mudguard fenders for bicycles, has redirected its capability to meet the dire need for face shields that protect its wearer from liquid droplets.

“When we started our company only a year ago, we thought it was most important to invest in machines and create our own manufacturing capabilities. We feel very fortunate that we can use these same machines to manufacture face shields quickly in-house to meet the needs of frontline workers during this pandemic” said Erik Saunders, Memory Pilot’s managing partner. “We are ready to ship small orders in one business day, and large orders can ship in as few as three days. Since we are doing all of the manufacturing ourselves our lead times are short, and our capacity is large enough to meet a significant part of the demand.”

Memory Pilot has set up scalable production and assembly at its headquarters in Goleta, CA and has PETG, foam, and elastic straps on hand with the potential to produce 150,000 shields per week if needed.

Additionally, Saunders notes that there has been some demand for face shield components like pre-cut PETG and foam from other groups who have a local need and the ability to assemble and distribute face shields on their own. “We welcome inquiries from any groups who need our help to supply them pre-cut foam, or PETG face shields. The need is so huge right now that we need to all support each other to make sure that everyone who would like to have a protective face shield can have access to it.”

Memory Pilot will manufacture their face shields in-house in Goleta, CA, and will distribute them on their website at www.memorypilot.com 

Inquiries can be directed to eriksaunders@memorypilot.com
