In the times of Coronavirus, when the world is facing shortage of masks, Eastman Machine Company has been granted a waiver of continued operation by New York State (NYS).
The company’s ability to provide essential services and products to manufacture bulk medical supplies when needed has been recognised by NYS.
Eastman is one of the leading manufacturers of handheld cutting machines, automated cutting systems, spreading and material handling systems.
At present, the company is proud to supply its machineries to apparel and textile manufacturing companies during this unanticipated ‘war’ against COVID-19 helping these companies align forces to respond to national emergency.
Robert Stevenson, President and CEO, Eastman Machine, expressed “All of us at Eastman are an important part of this fight. I am thankful to our employees and customers who continue to do their part to help America beat this virus.”
To begin with, cutting flexible technical textiles is the critical step for the production of masks, hospital beddings, gowns, curtains, gloves, first aid items, medical wipes, laboratory coats and other personal protective equipment, which is offered by the Eastman.
It offers solutions for materials that meet performance regulations related to bacterial filtration, resistance to penetration from microorganisms, body fluids and other contaminants, which are exactly the need of the hour!
