Brother International Donates Tools for PPE

Brother International Donates Tools for PPE

While everyone finds little ways to help the fight every day, many companies are also doing their part against coronavirus. The Brother International Corporation has donated 100 industrial sewing machines to help arm healthcare workers with safety gear.

Brother International, located in Bridgewater, NJ, makes and sells office and production equipment like printers, fax machines, and more. One of their product lines—a series of industrial sewing machines—is needed now more than ever.

The donation comes as Brother’s way of supporting the efforts of other brands helping in the fight against coronavirus. LA Apparel, Beverly Knits, and other garment lines have begun manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE) for doctors, nurses, and other first responders. One garment company, Brooks Brothers, even reopened some closed factories just for the cause.

After the White House’s urgent call for more face masks, Brother International hopes their equipment will help production.

“Brother remains committed to aiding our communities during these challenging times,” said Don Cummins, President of Brother International Corporation in an interview with PR Newswire. “…Brother is proud to donate our products to support these stalwart manufacturers with their efforts in making masks for our front-line workers.”

The Centers for Disease Control strongly recommend Americans wear face masks when leaving home. In New Jersey, face masks are currently mandatory to enter what establishments remain open, like supermarkets and drug stores.
