Boyd Technologies: Statement on mask production
Like so many of our partners in the health care industry, we are responding to the calls for support from state and federal agencies as well as our commercial partners. A number of our production lines are well suited to produce personal protective equipment (PPE) – however, we do not produce this equipment currently. In order to do so, there are substantial technical and raw material challenges, which we are actively working on.
Our mission is to Advance Health Care Together, and ultimately our goal is to improve the lives of the patients we serve. We take great pride in our capabilities as a medical device company and feel a profound sense of duty to respond to this call to action. We are working non-stop to do so. The company’s primary concern at this time is the health and safety of its workforce and its ability to continue to manufacture products safely and effectively.
“We – as a nation – have historically risen to meet challenges and to innovate in circumstances where there is no playbook. Boyd Technologies is working to be part of the solution to the challenges presented by COVID-19. We are committed to addressing shortages of PPE for our first responders and healthcare workers on the front lines of this pandemic.”
- B. Stephen Boyd, CEO Boyd Technologies
