Covercraft Steps Up To Protect Healthcare and First Responders with PPE Gear
Covercraft Industries is lending its manufacturing and engineering expertise to quickly expand production of urgently needed Personal Protective Equipment, mainly gowns and masks, for healthcare workers and first responders fighting the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Covercraft’s expertise in working with non-woven specialty fabrics has allowed us to pivot our operations in the USA from crafting car covers, seat covers, and windshield sunscreens to helping provide hospitals and first responders with personal protective equipment incredibly fast”, says Clay Callan, President and COO of Covercraft Industries.
“Orders will begin shipping today and we have capacity to potentially build hundreds of thousands of units. As an industry leader in the product categories we manufacture, we felt it was our duty to step in and help our country in this time of need,” adds Callan.
Groups or organizations in need of these PPE products should contact Covercraft by calling (405)367-8930 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
