New premium-quality German made face masks

Aldershot-based industrial product manufacturer FATH Components Ltd is now able to supply premium quality face masks ex-stock from both its UK warehouse and German production and distribution facility. The company is also gearing up to manufacture face masks at its main plant, located to the east of Stuttgart, and states that soon, once the new line is fully operational, it will be able to produce and dispatch 50,000 masks a day.

FATH UK managing director David Hayes says: “From Monday 27th April it has been Law in Germany for all citizens to wear masks when in a public place, and our Type FFP2 face mask is recommended for use in the fight against Coronavirus. For some weeks now the management team at our plant in Germany has been striving to establish a new production facility to meet anticipated demand for face masks”.

The company plans to make “Significant numbers” of Type FFP2 face masks available to health service providers, institutions and care homes at cost-price, with any additional production then retailing direct to the general public via its website and established network of approved distributors. “As a business currently supplying in excess of 23,000 different manufactured products from our Head Office in Germany, we are used to taking new designs from concept to finished items leaving the factory gate speedily. But in this case the manufacturing of new FFP2 masks has also required a whole new production facility to be designed and commissioned in record time” concludes David Hayes.

Details about mask availability can be obtained from FATH Components Ltd on 01252 346610.
