Face shields for the frontline.

Our teams are heeding the call from healthcare workers on the frontline and finding innovative ways to deliver face shields that can help protect the brave women and men risking their lives to care for people in need.

Caring for our own.

Keeping our associates safe and healthy is always our top priority as we adapt our business to a world changed by COVID-19. From the manufacturing floor and break room to our distribution centers, we've introduced aggressive measures to minimize the spread of the virus and to help flatten the curve globally.

Partners in purpose.

Kohler Co. has long partnered with humanitarian organizations working to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We're teaming up with those same partners to extend the good we can do during the COVID-19 crisis.

Helping our healthcare workers.

Kohler is appreciative of the frontline workers risking their health daily to help people in need. We're helping to keep them protected by assembling and distributing personal protective equipment (PPE) to medical facilities in communities around the world.

Wellness that works.
