Answering The Call...To Fight COVID 19

Response Medical Team | Response Medical  | United States

Due to cost pressures in the early 2000s, PPE surgical face mask production moved from 90% Made in USA; to 95% foreign made.  With the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, China, and other overseas manufacturers, banned mask exports to fulfil their domestic supply requirements. The result was an alarming shortage of high quality PPE face masks and medical supplies here in the US. 

Using our resources and expertise in non wovens processing, Response Medical faced the challenge and opened our domestic face mask development and production facility in West Warwick, Rhode Island.
