According to Jonathan Hirsch, president and owner of Lamart, the company’s first PPE gown was designed and made by precision cutting of polyethylene film in only 24 hours. Almost immediately, 40,000 gowns were turned out by Lamart’s plant in Tijuana, Mexico. When that facility was shut down by the Mexican government in an effort to boost social distancing, the Clifton plant took over, targeting an output of 75,000 gowns per week.
Through its work to serve healthcare providers during the pandemic, Lamart has also seen other positives offsetting the downsides of these challenging times. Its aerospace-product engineers are busy improving and streamlining the isolation-gown production and have not been furloughed, part-time employees were hired to help with the extra work, and the company has invested in additional production machinery.
