Leading information technology company, Gerber, has partnered with the creative platform, Colorkarma, to develop an easy-to-use interface for the company’s PPE manufacturing matchmaking programme. Leading companies continue to rely on the Gerber PPE Task Force to successfully convert their current production lines to personal protective equipment (PPE).

Together, Gerber and Colorkarma created a new directory for Gerber’s PPE manufacturing matchmaking programme. The programme is designed to connect manufacturers with suppliers that can provide them the resources and support needed to successfully transition to PPE production. The new, easy-to-use directory includes contact information for all companies involved in the matchmaking programme, allowing manufacturers to quickly find exactly what they’re looking for based on their needs, capabilities, and goals, according to a press release by Gerber.

“As companies all over the world are navigating through this difficult time, connecting to the right companies such as raw materials suppliers or companies who are able to cut or sew is essential to having a smooth transition to PPE. Our partnership with Colorkarma will allow manufacturers to quickly find the exact contacts they need for fast and efficient PPE production,” Karsten Newbury, chief strategy and digital officer at Gerber said.

“We are excited to extend the Colorkarma platform to support Gerber’s PPE Task Force Initiative. Colorkarma created the PPE directory to bring together designers, manufacturers, and suppliers in order to help businesses quickly shift their production from printing, packaging, textiles, and so on to PPE. Together, we can fight against the SARS-CoV2 pandemic and support the local, regional, and global PPE needs,” Shoshana Burgett, owner of Colorkarma said.
