PROTECT THE LINE

Protect the Line was a collaboration of small businesses coming together to provide much needed personal protective equipment (PPE) to essential workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative, led by additive manufacturing company, FAMAero, was up and running within 7 days, delivering its first order to a VA hospital in Detroit. To keep ventilators running, a replacement part for the machines was designed within 24 hours, resulting in 200 pieces being manufactured and delivered in 72-hours.

The initiative set up a GoFundMe page to cover the cost of material, 3D printers and expansion efforts throughout the state. Protect the Line delivered over 10,000 pieces of PPE, with many individuals driving hours to pick-up their own.  

Protect the Line was a collaboration between FAMAero, Rumph Chiropractic, Air Advantage, MK Advisors, The Last Kilometer and 8THIRTYFOUR Integrated Communications.
