June 23, 2020, Kuala Lumpur – Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd, the largest carmaker in Malaysia, has distributed 5,000 face shields produced by its associate to 17 secondary schools in the Hulu Selangor district.
The face shields are for the form 5 and 6 students, teachers and support staff as they return to school after a three-months closure due to the Movement Control Order.
“As a caring, people first company, we believe in going beyond when it comes to safety, especially when our beloved children are involved and particularly those less fortunate,” said its president and chief executive officer Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad in a statement.
The face shield features a fog-resistant visor made of polyethylene terephthalate for optimal visibility, sponge cushioning that hugs the forehead to act as a barrier against airborne droplets, and an adjustable elastic band for a snug and comfortable fit.
Perodua also contributed face shields to the Hulu Selangor district education office in Kuala Kubu Bharu.
