Support of British Government’s mask manufacturing mandate
Medicom is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of medical and respiratory masks. To do so, Berry is investing in a new state-of-the-art meltblown nonwovens line, to be outfitted with its proprietary charging technology, at one of its UK-based facilities to increase capacity of material necessary in the production of European-standard Type IIR and N99-equivalent FFP3 masks. The masks will be manufactured and sold under Medicom’s European Kolmi brand. The British Government has enabled these investments through a long-term contractual commitment. The agreement confirmed support for Medicom’s new UK-based production facility, which is scheduled to open later this summer.
