Minnesota wood products maker opens half of production to medical equipment

MINNEAPOLIS -- In response to the lack of urgent necessary supply in the medical sector, Woodchuck USA will be opening up to 50 percent of its production line to demands in the medical and personal protective equipment products.

Products such as face shields have already started production and other laser engraved products are in the works. These products are being built in accordance with the Johns Hopkins Medicine medical standards. Woodchuck is committed to serving our community, and contributing to the health of those around us, especially the medical professionals taking care of our affected population.

Woodchuck’s state-of-the-art laser manufacturing facility enables them to produce upwards of 30,000 to 50,000 units of various products per day. They are also coordinating daily with the other specialty manufacturers to build products outside just their skillset.

“Myself and my entire team here at Woodchuck USA are standing by and ready to help in whatever way possible,” said Benjamin VandenWymelenberg, founder and CEO of Woodchuck USA. “If you have a product that you think we can help with, please contact us." ([email protected])
