Omega Systèmes making single-use aprons for France

May '20
Omega Systèmes, a Web Industries company, is producing single-use, disposable aprons for the Pays de la Loire region of France. It is delivering 60,000 such aprons per day to local hospitals in the region. Single-use aprons are among the most needed PPE items in France. The polyethylene aprons are worn by nurses, doctors, medics and caretakers.

When Omega Systèmes was contacted by Nantes University Hospital in mid-April 2020 with a request for aprons, the company responded quickly. Single-use aprons are among the most needed PPE items in France, along with face masks and gowns. These aprons have been validated by Nantes University Hospital.

“We produced prototype aprons for the hospital’s review,” reports Web Industries Michael Quarrey, vice president of aerospace operations. “We put production into high gear immediately following the hospital’s validation of our product. Omega currently has material to manufacture one million single-use aprons. With our materials supply chain and high-speed precision formatting equipment, we can quickly meet apron needs for hospitals and care facilities throughout France and other European countries.”

The polyethylene aprons are worn by nurses, doctors, medics and caretakers who meet with patients to examine and carry out treatments, such as taking temperatures or changing an IV line. They are delivered in protective plastic sheaths that meet Nantes University Hospital’s strict sanitary requirements.

Quarrey says that Omega Systèmes is currently also filling orders for more than 7.8 million face masks for other France-based customers, and is equipped to manufacture face masks and gowns for use in hospitals and health care facilities throughout Europe.
