Berkeley, IL – KI Industries, an employee owned company, announced today the launch of their new Ecommerce web site, kishields.com in support of the rollout of their new product lines KI Shields and KI Mask Extenders. The products were introduced in mid-April to overwhelming public response according to Jim Dennison, Director of Marketing and New Product Development. “The response to these products was greater than we ever anticipated” said Dennison. The Shields and Mask Extenders will be available exclusively on KIShields.com.
The company also announced a program to give back, benefitting first responders. For every Shield sold, KI will donate one Shield to members of the first responder community. “In these challenging times, it is important that we all do our parts to support our first responder community like law enforcement personnel, doctors, and nurses. We’re enthusiastic about this program to give back, and what it can do for people” said Mike MacLean, President and CEO of KI.
Both the Shields and Mask Extenders are made of high-density polyethylene and can be cleaned for multiple uses. The Shields are made to be worn over protective face masks such as the N-95 to help extend the masks life by limiting exposure to airborne contaminants. The initial product offering will consist of three colors – Slate, Buff, and Pink with additional colors coming in the near future.
KI Industries was founded in 1964 and has become the leading supplier of decorative plastic and die cast parts for the appliance and automotive industries. KI has pioneered numerous technologies that are now widely used in these industries and they continue to develop new processing techniques that enable their customers to bring innovative products to market.
