This epidemic forced us to adapt. Not only to maintain the jobs of 250 employees, but to collaborate with our local community and health professionals.
Therefore, AMF SAFETY SHOES / TOWORKFOR - in partnership with ALOFT - adapted its production and, in record time, created WASHY CLOGS. A sterilizable, light and comfortable clogs that were offered to dozens of IPSS's, health centers and hospitals from Guimarães and Vila do Conde. In total, more than 2000 pairs of clogs were offered.
However, with increased need of community masks, our development department created the TOWORKFOR masks. To do so, we retrofitted our production lines to install two sewing lines that in total produced more than half a million reusable and certified masks.
And finally, in partnership with a start-up specialized in nanotechnology, we launched SAFE SPPRAY: a certified antiviral that eliminates bacteria, viruses and fungi for 12 hours, that can be safely applied in to clothes and shoes to avoid contamination.
