Denim Expert is offering its world class facility for the production of protective face masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on a non-profit basis to help tackle the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The company is offering the capacity, skills and production expertise of its factory and wants to develop partnerships to meet much-needed short-term demand for masks and PPE in the battle against COVID-19.
Those willing to partner and wishing to utilise this production capacity would only be asked to provide fabrics and raw materials as well as meeting workers’ wages. Many hospitals in Europe and USA are already running short of masks and PPE as they creak under the strain of the pandemic.
At present, COVID-19 is most prevalent in Europe, where demand for surgical masks and other protective garments has sky-rocketed this past two months. However, other countries – including Bangladesh – are several weeks behind Europe but are expected to follow the same pattern in terms of cases and deaths.
