ECOSMART™ IN ACTION
ECOSMART™ emphasizes our company-wide sustainability efforts both internally and to the public. Our product development processes across all businesses are being retooled to provide increased focus on early identification of product sustainability opportunities that can be addressed during the design phase. These process enhancements will help ensure that every product is considered through an ECOSMART™ lens during development.
FORD/3M/DEWALT POWERED AIR PURIFYING RESPIRATOR (PAPR)
This collaboration between Ford, 3M and DEWALT came together quickly to create portable respirators to support the response to COVID-19. Ford contributed the blower and handled the final assembly, 3M supplied the air filter and we provided the DEWALT batteries and charger as well as design input on a custom wiring harness.
