Beverly Knits received Sewing Machine Donation From Brother International For Face Mask Production. GASTONIA, N.C. —Beverly Knits has announced a donation of industrial sewing machines from Brother International Corp. The donated machines include five Brother S7250A-403 single needle lockstitch industrial sewing machines. The donation will allow Beverly Knits to significantly increase its current face mask production numbers.
This donation will allow Creative Ticking, the cut and sew division of Beverly Knits, to support the need for face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. The face masks will be supplied directly to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
“Brother remains committed to aiding our communities during these challenging times,” said Don Cummins, president, Brother International Corp. USA. “Given the severe and growing shortage of personal protective equipment, Brother is proud to donate our products to support these stalwart manufacturers with their efforts in making masks for our frontline workers.”
Beverly Knits partnered with 30 other companies in the textile industry across the United States to produce face masks for HHS. The goal is to produce up to 2 million masks per week.
“Continued support and collaboration within the textile industry is key to flattening the COVID-19 curve,” said Ron Sytz, CEO of Beverly Knits. “We appreciate this generous donation from Brother that will help the industry advance the cause at a more rapid pace.”
Anyone interested to participate can email USAfacemask@beverlyknits.com to get involved on flattening the curve.
