Ok Xoomer EP16 | Landon Borders | Rapid Product Development to Meet Customer Demands
There's a lot of product development time and energy behind the simple hard hat, which is something Bullard understands very well: they invented it. Bullard has been at the head of PPE development for over 100 years and Landon Borders, Director of Product Development, knows that even something as simple as a hard hat doesn't invent itself. On this episode of Ok Xoomer, Aaron Lichtig, Xometry guy and former Jeopardy! champion, talks with Landon on what it takes to develop PPE equipment and how Bullard rapidly shifted to manufacturing critical medical PPE as COVID-19 took hold around the world.
