APT to triple N-95 respirator mask production for upcoming H1N1

Sep '09
Alpha Pro Tech Ltd announced that it will be tripling the average output of N-95 respirator masks that it has been producing since May, which will help accommodate Alpha Pro Tech's current backlog and increase availability for the upcoming flu season/swine flu season.

Al Millar, President of Alpha Pro Tech, commented, “Respirator N-95 mask sales continue to be up significantly in the third quarter and will significantly exceed sales achieved in the second quarter. We expect sales to continue to be much stronger than normal for the foreseeable future amidst concerns regarding the global H1N1 Influenza A (commonly known as “Swine Flu”) pandemic."

"As a result of this expected demand, we will triple N-95 respirator mask production starting in the beginning of the fourth quarter 2009, which begins October 1, 2009. We will begin to ramp up production to that level in September. We currently have backorders, but this increased capacity will fulfill these backorders. We should then have excess capacity available for those who need masks for the upcoming flu season/swine flu season.”

Mr. Millar continued, “Alpha Pro Tech is committed to allocating the necessary resources to minimize the spread of swine flu. We are increasing our manufacturing efforts to provide healthcare professionals with sufficient quantities of N-95 respirator masks to address the ongoing healthcare crisis, particularly as we are now entering the primary flu season.”
