Sany America donates PPE to Georgia area hospitals

In light of the recent Covid-19 pandemic and critical demand for personal protective equipment, Sany America delivered 10,000 medical-grade disposable facemasks to Piedmont Fayette Hospital in Fayetteville, GA, just a few miles from Sany America headquarters, and another 10,000 masks to the Georgia Department of Public Health.
Sany America has worked to support several local health care institutions by sourcing thousands of facemasks.
Sany America supplied an additional 30,000 masks to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, GA. This hospital serves Dougherty County, which has seen the highest number of fatalities from coronavirus in the state, making the hospital one of the facilities most in need during the crisis.
“We know that the current situation has impacted everyone, from here in Georgia to every corner of the world,” said Doug Friesen, CEO, Sany America. “We were fortunate to have facemasks available at our headquarters facility, and wanted to do what we could to help those workers and facilities helping to keep our neighbors, our employees and our families healthy and safe during this crisis.”
For team members working on site at the Georgia headquarters, Sany America has provided remote work options when possible. Sany’s parts team has remained on the job throughout, supported by remote call center staff, using internal staff rotations and employing safe working protocols and social distancing, along with other CDC recommendations, allowing for some continuity of service for equipment owners and dealers, the company said.
To support the network of Sany dealers, Sany America has also provided more than 13,000 of its medical-grade masks to dealers for their employees who work with customers on a daily basis. Members of the Sany America management team have also personally reached out to speak with dealers across the nation to discuss their needs.
