Gildan Activewear to start producing personal protective equipment to help slow the spread of COVID-19
Gildan has joined forces with various partners to produce non-medical face masks and isolation gowns in support of the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As an organization we are committed to playing a proactive role in supporting the shortage of personal protective equipment needed in the global fight against this pandemic,” said Glenn Chamandy, President and CEO of Gildan. “I want to thank our partners and everyone at Gildan who have been working diligently to get the required authorizations and plans in place to start the production of these much-needed items, and especially the facility workers who have volunteered to work to produce these products,” he added.
The Company is also having discussions with other partners in the retail and imprintables industry interested in distributing personal protective equipment. The Company has also communicated with other governments in the countries where it operates, including Canada and Honduras, and has offered to supply non-medical masks and isolation gowns as needed.
