As the coronavirus continues to spread, Lamborghini has stepped up to support the medical community in Italy by producing essential medical supplies, including face shields and masks, for healthcare workers in Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna.
As the manufacturer produces hand-built vehicles, the medical supplies will be constructed by craftspeople in its Sant’Agata Bolognese manufacturing center in Italy. The carmaker will be producing the hand-stitched surgical masks and 3D-printed face shields to aid a shortage in medical supplies amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
The car company has also been working with the regional government, healthcare professionals, and the University of Bologna to verify that the medical supplies will be up to proper standards before they get donated to the hospital.
Along with the automaker, IKEA, New Balance, Chanel and LVMH have all engaged their facilities to prepare healthcare protection equipment for frontline professionals.
