In line with its vision of adding value to lives, India-based textile giant Trident Group is utilising its manufacturing abilities to produce personal protection equipment (PPE) including disinfectant masks, medical suits and hygiene kits to support various organisations in their fight against the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Mask making: Optimising its skills set and textiles manufacturing capacity, the Group is manufacturing 10,000 disinfectant masks (Tri-Safe masks) every day. Being produced as per the prescribed safety standards, till date, more than 90,000 masks have been distributed among rural population. The company is now targeting a wider population who are in need of masks to combat Covid-19.

"These masks are being handed over to local administrations, state governments, and people living in nearby villages. Through the mask making exercise, Trident Group is extending employment to hundreds of women of self-help groups under its Hastakala initiative. Proper precautions are being taken for each of the members associated in the production of these masks," the company said in a statement.

Safety suits: Aware of the importance of PEE for healthcare professionals working on the frontline in containing the deadly Covid-19, the Group is also developing medical suits (Tri-Safe body suits). The team is continuously working with a specialised yarn and is in the final stage of manufacturing sanitised, antimicrobial, comfortable and reusable medical suits.

"A team of highly skilled members collaborated with the finest finish suppliers and has worked out the most suitable and effective sanitisation finish. With all the plans falling into the right place, Trident Group is now prepared to produce 10,000 pieces of these medical suits per day," the company said.

Hygiene kits: To contain the spread of the virus and flatten the curve, the crucial step is to maintain the required hygiene standards. The Group is distributing comprehensive hygiene kits of essentials, including soaps, sanitisers, vegetable cleaner and hand towels to people residing in rural areas. "These kits have been prepared by Trident volunteers and are distributed through proper channels. The Group is also reaching out to local administrations, state governments and NGOs along with these kits and are extending complete support to them," the statement said.

Anti-virus home linen: Taking one step ahead in its commitment towards creating products that cater to the inner and outer well-being of customers, Trident Group is launching an exclusive ‘anti-virus’ range of home linen. Bringing a breakthrough in innovation, the company has partnered with the world’s finest technology partners to create towels and bedsheets that reduce risk and speed of contamination and transmission.

"This treated bed and bath linen will enhance the resistance to lipid-enveloped viruses, such as coronavirus by capturing and depleting the membrane content, providing rapid deactivation and inhibiting further transmission. With proven results, textiles created with this advanced technology will be beneficial for the whole of mankind; those using it and those coming in close contact with. The range will be available in the market soon," the Group said.

Other decisions: Under the umbrella of its Corporate Social Responsibility, the Group has established a multi-speciality hospital in Budhni for the welfare of general public as well as the company’s employees and their family members. Extending support to its employees, the Group released salaries 14 days in advance with no deduction in the pay/wages of workers so that the members are financially sufficient to meet their needs during their quarantine. Employees providing essential/support services at ground zero to help others are also acknowledged and rewarded with additional salary as a token of appreciation for their service. Employees away from home and housed at factories are provided with essential life needs and medical support with dedicated teams.

“We are in this together. Covid-19 has changed everything about life and work in just a matter of a few weeks. In these challenging times, we are all navigating through uncertainty for ourselves, our loved ones and our community. Amidst the socio-economic disruptions caused by Covid-19, the human race is simultaneously also learning to adapt to the newly emerging systems and processes," Trident Group chairman Rajinder Gupta said.

"I feel, this is nature way of pressing the reset button for us. Of course, we cannot overlook the huge drop in the economy, but by finding silver lining in this dark cloud, we can at least take this as an opportunity to restructure our communities, lifestyles and priorities," Gupta added.
