Just outside of Jamestown, NY, Trinity Biotech produces plastic media transport tubes, which is a container used to store infectious disease test swabs for processing. “We have seen a huge increase in demand to help support the COVID-19 testing,” said Dennis Lefler, operations manager for the Jamestown facility.
SKF Aerospace recently expressed a need to the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA) to purchase masks for its 500 production staff due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the CCIDA had become aware that The Resource Center (TRC) was mass-producing fabric masks. In response to SKF’s request, the CCIDA contacted TRC on SKF’s behalf and was directed to contact Bruce Theuret, General Manager at Support Enterprises, Inc.
Within 24 hours of receiving a request, Jamestown Container’s Falconer facility designed, produced and delivered boxes that will be used to ship Jamestown Plastics’ new True Hero™ face shields.
