INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, has announced a new portal on its website which connects suppliers with buyers and increases awareness of actions by nonwoven and engineered fabric producers in the fight against Covid-19.
The Allies Against Covid-19 portal details the actions being taken by 71 INDA member companies throughout the entire supply chain. These cover advancement in cutting edge viricidal and antimicrobial treatments, increased capacity and throughput, the manufacture of face masks, gowns, disinfectant wipes, and community outreach. Companies are listed alphabetically and include contacts and website links.
Medical, academic, and government entities are encouraged to connect with INDA member companies to join the fight against the pandemic. Industry professionals are asked to share ideas that advance business and identify opportunities for available donations of materials which slow the spread of the disease.
Dave Rousse, INDA President, said: “INDA is a resource connecter in this effort to provide the necessary PPE materials and disinfectant wipes to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re witnessing fast and strong contributions by the nonwoven and engineered fabrics community in this effort.”
