-Scales up production to offer protection amidst the COVID-19 pandemic




Asia's largest helmet manufacturer Steelbird Hi-tech India (SBHT) apart from producing its popular range of motorcycle helmets - and riding gears has ventured into the health care segment. To begin with, the company has launched a wide range of healthcare products to offer protection amidst the COVID-19 pandemic including Face shields, PPE kits, Gloves, Oximeter and masks besides OTC Immunity Boosters Medicines for the domestic market.


The products are being manufactured and its existing plants in Baddi & Noida.   SBHT has cutting edge manufacturing facilities in all 6 of its plants and the largest one is in Baddi (Himachal Pradesh), near Chandigarh with over one hundred and fifty thousand Sq. ft. of covered area.


Commenting on the current need of the medical devices, Mr. Rajeev Kapur, Managing Director, Steelbird Group indicated, “Face shield, PPE kits, gloves, oximeter and masks have become central to the Covid-19 conversation as the disease tightens its grip on the world. They are regarded as essential items in hospitals, where the equipment could prove the difference between life and death for doctors, nurses and patients.


And it’s not just in healthcare where medical products like face masks, face shields and gloves are gaining traction. While schools have closed, many businesses are avoiding public meetings to reduce the spread of the virus; large sections of the general public must still venture outside their homes for groceries and essential work.


An increasing number of these citizens are attempting to mitigate the risk by wearing face shields and gloves. This is particularly important for key workers who rely on public transport or operate in an environment where it’s hard to maintain adequate social distancing.”


Looking at the growing demand and need for offering quality and innovative medical devices Steelbird helmets made an entry into the healthcare business early this year.


Steelbird recently launched an innovative GN-1 HF Static Face Shield, which is a first of its kind revolutionary hand free face shield. The face shield not only helps to save from coronavirus infection but one can also pick or receive a phone call, it can be connected through an aux that enables you to take the calls and enjoy the music. Prior to this the company had launched 5 different types of face shields along with face shields exclusively designed and manufactured for kids.


Furthermore, the company is also offering gloves, niqabs, balaclavas and PPE Kit that uses a premium fabric like used in European countries and also a set of Doctor’s goggles that come with an anti-fog layer.


Steelbird is using its existing manufacturing facility for making these medical devices.
