HanesBrands completes production and distribution of more than 450 million all-cotton cloth face coverings and more than 20 million medical gowns supplied to the U.S. government for use during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are proud of the commitment of our employees and our ability to quickly pivot to large-scale production of face coverings and face masks to meet important needs during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Michael E. Faircloth, group president, global operations, American casualwear and e-commerce.
Hanes and the U.S. government worked together to complete this effort and supplement supplies of nonsurgical personal protection for use during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to the more than 450 million cloth face coverings, the company designed, developed, and produced more than 20 million washable and reusable long-sleeve medical gowns distributed to hospitals and healthcare facilities in need.
