"We are very honored to receive this Stevie Award that recognizes and acknowledges our rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic," said Melissa Kehl, ROI president. "It was our desire to help businesses' doors stay open, including ours, in a safe manner and we were able to create the SafeSpace™ PPE line of shield, panels and panel extenders in a matter of one week. Less than a month later, we expanded our SafeSpace™ line to help gyms, restaurants, bars, beauty salons, and countless other settings. The response to this line has been positive and attractive to our clients. We also congratulate the other Stevie nominees in the COVID-19 Response Categories."
