Rapid changeover of production in the region relieves the strain on mask bottlenecks.
The demand for protective masks has risen sharply in recent months due to the corona pandemic. Since the high global demand resulted in delivery bottlenecks, the focus fell on regional companies that are converting their production to reusable medical face masks and reusable “community masks”. Member of the Bundestag Dennis Rohde (SPD) and Member of the Landtag Karin Logemann (SPD) visited JUTEC today, which has switched its production to mouth and nose covers.
“The local production of medical protective technology, such as masks and gowns, is an important pillar for the north-west and for Germany. In this way, we are prepared in the event of an emergency and will not have to rely on outside support in the future, ”said Rohde. "The future-oriented and sustainable concept of mask production from JUTEC is a model for innovative processes in production."
"The quick decision to start producing mouth and nose covers eased the tension on the market, which was particularly stressed during the pandemic," said Logemann. "Companies like JUTEC, who quickly switched their production to the manufacture of reusable masks, took the pressure off the system and helped protect our medical staff, who are currently fighting on the front lines."
