Sourcing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) During COVID-19

Sourcing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) During COVID-19

What started out as a public health crisis on other side of the world in early 2020, quickly morphed into a global pandemic creating demand for products most of us never considered wearing in public.

Procurement and supply chain experts were the unsung heroes in the wild wild west’s race against time for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) needed by essential service workers.

As non-essential businesses open up and companies roll out their return-to-work plans (knowing a second wave is possible), the demand for civilian masks, KN95 masks and face shields continues to grow.

Protect Your Business and Employees

As the market catches up with demand, the number of suppliers offering PPE is multiplying daily… so beware. The you get what you pay for mantra doesn’t apply in this booming new billion dollar industry. The barriers to entry are low for civilian PPE so be sure to order from a trusted and experienced supplier who can ensure business compliance and keep your employees safe.

MCRL offers three types of facial barriers for families, front line staff, and employees on the floor or in the office to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
