COVID-19 and NextFab
On March 17th, all NextFab locations closed for business in compliance with Philadelphia’s sanction for all non-essential businesses. Along with other local manufacturers, makers, hospitals, universities and small businesses, NextFab assisted in constructing much needed medical personal protective equipment (PPE). Utilizing our makerspace’s equipment and staff we helped produce masks, face shields and assisted companies in producing essential parts for their medical equipmnet.
