Molded Precision Components (MPC) has donated 600 of its Shield-U face shields to the Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA).

MPC is a prototype molding shop, specializing in high quality plastic parts such as gears and complex assemblies located in Oro-Medonte, Ont.

MPC’s Shield-U face shield, developed in conjunction with Sterling Industries, comeswith a QR code that provides video instructions.

They are fully recyclable, lightweight and feature durable headbands. They can be fully sanitized and safe for use in food manufacturing, with no pieces that could fall off and disintegrate during food preparation.


The BIA will be distributing the face shields to its membership in the days following as part of the recovery support they are providing its membership. Re-Open PPE kits have also been made available to BIA members with a cost-share opportunity for the first 50 kits ordered.

“On behalf of our membership, the Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) would like to extend a huge thank you to Molded Precision Components for their heartfelt generosity,” says Kelly McKenna, executive director of the Barrie BIA in a statement.
