The PAWI Group, with the company PAWI Verpackungen AG as its Swiss representative, is a member of the International Packaging Group Association (www.ipgassociation.com). This is a global association of folding carton and packaging manufacturers and leading suppliers to the packaging industry worldwide.
IPG has used its worldwide network to organise the production and distribution of face masks in the individual countries via the website www.fibershield.org. The patent-pending and copyrighted carton-based face shield designs presented on this website can be used by packaging companies royalty-free until 2020. This is provided that at least 100,000 face shields are donated to healthcare providers in 2020. Experiencing and seeing what can be achieved with "face packaging" makes our employees in Switzerland and Germany incredibly proud and is a great example of how completely new things are created in times of crisis. It is not our intention to profit from the crisis. First and foremost, our employees want to make a contribution to the fight against the pandemic and are enormously motivated and committed.
