MMG Brands has announced that it will begin production on personal protective equipment in a bid to help medical professionals providing treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company reallocated its resources and expertise away from its typical offering of trend products, plush and décor items to focus on manufacturing N95 masks, nitrile gloves, hospital gowns.
“As a nimble company we are able to shift production quickly, and that’s what we’ve done to address a crushing need,” says Sean Price, executive vice president, chief marketing officer, MMG Brands in a statement. “We are at war with this virus. Historically, American companies transition from producing consumer goods to producing much-needed supplies for war efforts. MMG Brands is doing its part to make a difference during these uncertain circumstances.”
MMG Brands is partnering with state and federal entities to place supplies.
MMG Brands announcement follows other companies such as Kraft Hines and Unilever which recently announced they would help to provide products and support to aid relief during the current health crisis.
