MOSS TO MAKE 6 MILLION FACE MASKS PER WEEK
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Moss Inc. has expanded its global manufacturing capabilities to include high-speed automated production for Personal Protective Equipment. Moss’s new fleet of proprietary manufacturing technology can produce a total global output of 1.2 Million face masks per day.
In planning the plant, the partners considered the entire supply chain from the production of the required materials to certification and supply chain management. As soon as the first prototype is completed, it will be optimized further by Fraunhofer IPT in order to scale and automate the production of the face masks.
“Textiles and stitching have been a part of the Moss legacy since the 1950’s. We’re proud to take these new production steps to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic and to secure ample, competitively-priced supply for global public health needs,” said Dan Patterson, President & CEO of Moss.
“Because of these skills in textile processing, we received many inquiries on whether we could help with face masks, including inquiries for hundreds of thousands,” said Peter Bottenberg, Managing Director of Moss Germany. “Thinking in solutions instead of problems has always been Moss’s greatest strength, and we’re grateful for the dynamic partners who undertook a quick solution with us.”
Leveraging its global network of suppliers, Moss supply chain experts continue to secure needed materials and confirm that suppliers meet Moss’s standards of excellence for reliable, quality fulfillment.
While Moss has already shipped several large mask orders, it will soon have the capacity to fulfill high-volume orders from governments and public health organizations, including national contracts and re-stockpiling. Information is available at solutions.mossinc.com/ppe.
