Further profits from economies of scale, like warehousing and logistics, consolidating the marketing, sales, accounting, and legal departments will also be realized in late 2021.
In addition, the Company expects further long term growth from the following initiatives:
- The launch of the "WeShield Together" group purchasing division
- Increase in long term distribution agreements with health care organizations and Fortune 500 companies
- Medical and non-medical staffing
- Growth into the health care sector, including contracts for mobile COVID testing and vaccinations

OPTEC CEO, Roger Pawson, commented "We are extremely excited about WeShield's growth and with what they will bring to OPTEC, and we look forward to seeing them expand in years to come."
WeShield CEO Michael Sinensky commented, 'The big takeaway here is growth. As expected, we are not only growing, but we are also operating more efficiently in our second year of WeShield. Our numbers show that we have profited more in just two quarters of 2021 than all of the previous year. Our profit percentage was also 50% higher these two quarters. Last year we were new to this space following a successful pivot from the hospitality industry destroyed by the pandemic, but now we are no longer green, yet our numbers appear to be getting greener.'
WeShield is deeply ingrained in the wholesale medical industry, supplying PPE safety products to customers, including GAP, Caesars Entertainment, Hard Rock, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), NYC Housing Authority (NYCHA), Concordance, Henry Schein, Medline, and more.
