There has been a call for domestic PPE gown production during the Covid-19 pandemic due to US shortages in PPE gowns and shady Chinese factories. The United States and it’s economy needs this call to be heard. We’re answering.
Since April 1, 2020, The Odee Company has produced 369,000 Level 2 PPE Gowns and will have 1 million produced by end of June. We’re currently producing a number close to 50,000 per day. With another large domestic order of PPE gowns, we could ramp up even more and produce 100,000 per day. This is serious. Other PPE producers who have done this for a living have told us what we have created is impressive and that they were never able to produce these quantities, so quickly, at our price point. So why are some agencies and states still looking overseas?
Let’s look at the benefits of domestic PPE gown production:
-we’ve created jobs for over 100 positions
-this income goes directly back into the US economy
-freight from China has been reported at 20% of the cost alone
-several companies like us have been a trusted source in the United States manufacturing world (The Odee Company; est. 1923)
-if we’re able to produce PPE Gowns at Chinese prices, why not order state side?
Our domestic PPE gown production is supplying Nursing Homes and hospitals with Level 2 Gowns. We’d like to be sure The VA is taken care of as well. The Department of Defense, The Department of Homeland Security, and The Department of Health and Human Services can all benefit from our gown service. We just need them to know we’re here and hungry to produce for our country.
God Bless the USA!
