Face Shields – Made in the USA

With Locally Sourced Suppliers


At Summit, we value the sense of community and seek to help our local businesses as we enhance our local economies. We are to proud to say that our face shield manufacturing partners are local and support made in USA manufacturing. Here are just a few that we are enthusiastic about sharing with you and how they have helped support our business and making it possible to assemble PPE face shields right here in our St. Paul, Minnesota facility. Being able to source local components such as plastic face shields and assembling them at our St. Paul, MN facility, it has given our employees a new outlook on how their efforts can help support our community and others across the country during the COVID-19 pandemic.
