New Bedford Factory to Make Reusable Facemasks for Healthcare Workers
While we may not be running at 100%, our commitment to supporting our communities is as strong as ever. Our factory in New Bedford, Massachusetts, in conjunction with a leading privately held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies, will begin the production of cotton washable facemasks that can be used when an FDA approved mask is not available. The factory will use the manufacturer’s material and specifications and provide the sewing.
The Company will bring back furloughed employees to make 50,000 masks over the next few weeks and will continue to look for additional opportunities to help front-line healthcare professionals.
We will continue to partner wherever we are needed, because helping our country and citizens fight this virus is exactly the kind of Company we are.
