At-least for a while.
Unfortunately, the sudden surge in demand for all types of face masks is straining existing mask manufacturers and distribution channels.
The volume os masks that are needed is simply overwhelming and not possible to supply with the pre-Covid-19 PPE production capacity.
The news stories coming out daily are saying that finding face masks is hard if not impossible at this time. Many of these articles give readers alternatives such as how to make them at home or other businesses and places to buy masks such as Etsy, Facebook Marketplace, and the like.
These smaller retailers and individuals making masks are a great option if you need a few face masks for yourself, family, and friends.
However, finding face masks in bulk quantities for business use has been next to impossible up until now.
Ramping up Face Masks Production for Businesses needing to Protect Employees and Clients:Fortunately, there is a solution to the need. Many hospitality and health-care textile manufacturers are re-purposing factories to assist with the surge in demand.
Our own manufacturing partner, WestPoint Home/Hospitality, has been manufacturing face mask for front-line medical workers at the plant in Chipley, Fl since mid-March. This cut-and-sew plant has a limited capacity, so most of the face mask and also booties being produced have been donated in coordination with government and private health-care providers to areas experiencing the greatest impact from this Coronavirus pandemic.
To increase production capacity to keep up with the increase in demand, the WestPoint Bahrain Factory has been refitted to produce Face Masks and soon other PPE. Currently, the face masks are being produced at a rate of around 70,000 face masks per day at this facility.
The Fabric Face Masks being produced are the Martex Health Basics Face Mask with SILVERbac antimicrobial technology.
The Martex Health Face Masks are currently being flown in for faster delivery to end-users in the United States and will continue for as long as needed.
We are proud to be a supply partner with WestPoint Home in getting these masks to those that need them in the U.S.
If you or anyone you know needs face mask in bulk case packs of 100 masks, you can place your orders online at the lowest wholesale price you will find anywhere on these masks. Plus, we are providing Free Shipping on all orders!
