This Waveland business was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic – but not in the way you might think.

Company co-owner Rick Bradley oversees the Waveland operation, which opened in 2016 in the vacant 84 Lumber building (see story here). In addition to renovating the space, Infinity-AP installed $750,000 worth of equipment needed to fabricate storefronts for such major retailer customers as Victoria’s Secret and Abercrombie & Fitch.
Infinity-AP’s management and workers are used to responding to change, so the shift from storefronts to face shields came naturally. “We are in retail, so we are used to adapting to changing environments and evolving our products to fit our customers’ needs,” Foley said.
The production of face shields is helping to keep the operation going and 18 employees working, Foley said. They’re also working on a prototype for cash wraps for businesses at the register, she said. "This has allowed us to maintain a staff running seven days a week.”
