Maskco Technologies, SharperTek to Manufacture 75M Respirator Masks to Combat COVID-19
MIAMI — Maskco Technolgies Inc. has teamed with SharperTek to create 75 million N95 respirator masks over the next two years beginning in November. Under terms of the agreement, Pontiac, Mich.-based SharperTek will send 56 units of its assembly lines to Maskco Technologies’ production facilities in Miami, where the masks will be produced. The partners are awaiting certification from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). A group of healthcare providers created Maskco Technologies in April when they realized the need for more N95 masks amid the COVID-19 outbreak. SharperTek has been manufacturing automated ultrasonic systems since 2006.
