Hickey Freeman Now Making Masks
“They’re doing an awesome job over there. From prototype to final product. From surgical leftovers to end pieces. Working with black button on antiseptic for the employees. Michael’s for nose pieces. It’s crazy. There are able to sew 3000+ surgical masks a day (12 workers) and the cutters are able to cut 20,000 a day. They should have their first production surgical gown today.
Fantastic story. Talked to Jeffrey Diduch about creating them from the leftovers.”
