With a substantial portion of the global production of personal protective equipment (PPE) happening in the United States and China, much of Europe is experiencing a PPE shortage. To help deal with this issue and make PPE more widely available, Gerber Technology partners with the Professional Clothing Industry Association Worldwide (PCIAW).
“Nobody should have to go without the proper protection and risk being infected by COVID-19,” says Richard Jessup, sales director, EMEA of Gerber Technology. “Here at Gerber, the health and safety of people all around the world is a top priority. We are working tirelessly with our partners and customers to help and rapidly increase the production of PPE to ensure nobody is without.”
Through its PPE Task Force, Gerber has helped over 1,200 manufacturers successfully convert their manufacturing capabilities to PPE production, including protective masks, gowns, and face shields.
The Gerber PPE Task Force helps its network of manufacturers by providing free resources such as production-ready patterns, sharing best practices, and connecting manufacturers and suppliers through the PPE Manufacturer Matchmaking Program.
“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Gerber, as their expertise in PPE is unmatched,” says Yvette Ashby, PCIAW’s founder and CEO. “Their advanced knowledge, innovative solutions, and helpful resources are going to help vastly increase the availability of PPE in the U.K. and all of Europe.”
