Based on its successful initiative in China, the U.S. headquartered software and automation solutions expert announced the creation of the ‘Gerber PPE Task Force and Resource Team’ to help global customers to increase their production or transition to manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE) within the global context of the COVID-19.

Gerber Technology said that more than 300 manufacturers already rely on its advanced software, hardware solutions and expertise to produce masks and other PPE and that, over the last few months, Gerber has helped several customers transition into producing protective masks and other much needed medical supplies including Taglio Marchesini in Italy and Shanghai Challenge Textile in China.

“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”, said Mohit Uberoi, CEO, Gerber Technology. “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.”
