Texas Instruments Malaysia has stepped up to the plate in the ongoing war on the COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia as they’ve donated US$250,000 which is slightly over a million and change in Malaysia ringgit to purchase personal protective equipment and for food aid for affected communities surrounding their factories and nationwide.
Texas Instruments employees are also taking advantage of their engineering prowess as they are harnessing their factory 3D printer to manufacture face shields for healthcare workers, with an output of 40 shields per day. TI teams also delivered personal protective equipment worth an impressive RM50,000 to local hospitals and police stations while donating groceries worth RM15,000 to local affected communities.
