TORONTO — Toronto Stamp Inc. has announced it is leading a network of companies to deliver to Health Canada 4 million face shields over the next two months.

Established in 1907 in Toronto, the company produces stamps, stencils, nameplates, signs, tags, and badges out of a 7,000 square foot facility.

Deliveries of personal protective equipment (PPE) for domestic use have started to arrive in Ottawa, following the contract that was signed in early April.

“This is a family story, a Canadian story, and a story of partnerships,” said Jimmy Williams, general manager, Toronto Stamp, in a prepared statement. “When we found out we won the government contract, we knew we were never going to be successful alone – industry in Canada was going to get this done. In a matter of weeks, dozens of partners rallied to fill in the market gap. Many took risks to save their business and many more retooled their infrastructure and way of doing things to make this network work.”
