Coats joins Gerber PPE Task Force

April 16th, 2020 / By: / COVID-19, News

To help make a real difference to keeping people safe, Coats has joined the Gerber PPE Task Force as a coalition partner. The task force, created by Gerber Technology, empowers manufacturers to switch to personal protective equipment (PPE) production and match supply and demand for critically needed products.  

Coats has an extensive network of apparel manufacturers and sector players which means it is uniquely positioned to provide an industry matchmaker role to rapidly mobilise the work of the Task Force.  It is connecting its customers who are switching to PPE production to the Task Force which enables them to find potential outlets for their products. Coats provides high quality threads, trims, specialist products, technical support and services as well as guidance on adhering to PPE regulation to manufacturers switching their operations. It is also introducing its raw material suppliers that produce materials for use in the production of PPE.
