Gerber has announced that the company has launched the Gerber PPE Task Force and Resource Team to support their global customers and partners as they work to increase their production or transition to manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE). Gerber delivers industry-leading software and automation solutions for apparel and industrial customers.

In a global context where COVID-19 inexorably continues to spread, the global shortage of masks and other personal protective equipment needed to keep healthcare workers safe is a concern of everyone.

More than 300 manufacturers, including major global companies, rely on Gerber’s advanced software, hardware solutions and expertise to produce masks and other PPE. Over the last few months, Gerber has helped several customers’ transition into producing protective masks and other much needed medical supplies including Taglio Marchesini from Italy and Shanghai Challenge Textile, according to Gerber.

The Gerber PPE Resource Team is made up of dedicated experts who can offer advice, share best practices, support and technology to produce certain types of masks as well as protective apparel and accessories including raw material procurement and on-site support.

The Gerber PPE Resource Team is available to support PPE manufacturing including implementing pre-defined patterns and markers or defining fabric/sewing requirements, helping with the setup of cutter parameters specific to the selected fabrics, providing training, software, equipment, and service technicians to ramp up production, changing over current production lines to the production of PPE, connecting supply and demand for PPE via our global ecosystem of customers and partners, and introducing existing PPE manufacturers to those converting to PPE production.

“In what’s an unprecedented global emergency, all of us in the manufacturing industry need to work together to protect those fighting COVID-19 on the front lines. With over 50 years of expertise, we are doing our part and helping companies quickly transition into manufacturing PPE just as we did for our customers in China a few weeks ago and helped apparel companies successfully transition to manufacturing masks and other personal protective equipment,” Mohit Uberoi, CEO of Gerber said.
