Chainlogix in the News
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA— Feb. 21, 2022 – Chainlogix announces several non-medical N95 mask donations in the greater Charlottesville area and throughout the U.S.
In January 2022, Chainlogix donated 3,800 non-medical N95 masks to the Charlottesville community via Mark & Cynthia Lorenzoni of Ragged Mountain Running and Walking Shop. In addition, 23,000 masks were distributed for those in need in Washington, D.C. at Mary’s Center, Charlie’s Place at St. Margaret’s, Serve Your City, and Sunrise DC. As the word has spread, more donations were made in the following weeks to the Washington Teachers Union and the Public Housing Association of Residents PHAR in Charlottesville.
A freight truck delivered 92,000 additional non-medical N95 masks in Arizona in early February. Rena Brown, CEO of Sewing for Native Nations, said: “I personally would like to thank Chainlogix for this generous donation. Requests made from native nations to Sewing for Native Nations for 3-layer cotton mask units are in the hundreds of thousands. These masks take time to make, and we are working diligently to get them done. The masks you so generously offered to Sewing for Native Nations are going to provide essential barriers in the interim, thus saving lives. Thank you for this gift of life.”
This is not the first time that Chainlogix has helped provide greater access to protective facemasks during the pandemic. In May 2020, Chainlogix (at the time the organization was named Visiontech Solutions Group) donated over 250,000 non-medical N95 masks throughout the greater Charlottesville area. In January month and April of 2021, Chainlogix distributed facemasks in the community with the help of Mark & Cynthia Lorenzoni of Ragged Mountain Running and Walking Shop.
Rick Perrault, CEO of Chainlogix, shared that “Chainlogix is very proud to assist those who have limited access to protective masks. While the masks are non-medical and suited for the general public or use in non-healthcare related environments, they still offer superior protection.” He added: “I know that these masks will help many avoid infection and that lives will be saved as a result”.
Chainlogix’s services have proven invaluable during the pandemic. After a branding change from Visiontech Solutions Group to Chainlogix, the organization has been acquired by New Water Capital, a leading private equity firm focused on companies in industrial manufacturing and services. Chainlogix will merge with Nelson Miller, Inc. Perrault stated that “we now have new resources and capabilities to continue driving value, especially in engineering expertise, and in-house manufacturing from sub-assemblies to box builds. As our organization continues to grow, we are looking forward to filling more customer service roles here in the Charlottesville area.”
