Supporting Companies Producing Masks
Brother International Corporation (U.S.A.) (BIC (USA)) donated Brother industrial sewing machines to companies in the United States in April 2020 in order to support the production of personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks, demand for which has skyrocketed as a result of the spread of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections.
To meet the demand for masks and other equipment necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19, apparel brands and other companies are producing PPE in response to a request from the government. To support these efforts, BIC (USA) donated one hundred S-7250A-403 industrial sewing machines to four companies including Brooks Brothers.
The president of BIC (USA) commented on the donation, "It is our hope that the donation of Brother products will be of use in the increased production of PPE, and we are proud to support those who are working in the face of COVID-19."
BIC (USA) will continue such efforts while maintaining an awareness of the importance of contributing to society.
