FARNHAM, Quebec — Martins Industries Inc. donated 5,000 safety masks recently to the city of Farnham, where its head office is located, for distribution to municipal employees as well as to organizations that provide essential services to citizens in surrounding areas.
"When events like these happen, you just want to make sure as a company that you do your part as a member of your community," Martins Industries President Martin Depelteau said.
"The workers who are still out there on the front line to provide essential services so that we can still function as a society are the real warriors here. The least we can do is to support them in every way we can, and we are hoping that these masks are going to make them feel safer."
Martins Industries, which manufacturers tire equipment to store, handle, inflate and display tires and wheels, said it remains fully operational and continues taking orders both directly, as well as online.
