In what’s an unprecedented global emergency, companies around the world need to band together, think creatively, and act fast to protect all people, but especially our healthcare workers.
To help support the fight, Gerber is joining forces and has created the Gerber PPE Task Force to support their customers as they work to increase their production and/or transition to manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE). They are collaborating with Material Concepts and DuPont to support customers who are interested in manufacturing gowns made with Tyvek® 1222A as part of the #TyvekTogether program.

"We are very proud and excited to join forces with DuPont and Material Concepts to keep our frontline heroes healthy and safe as they work tirelessly to fight COVID-19," said Karsten Newbury, Chief Strategy and Digital Officer of Gerber Technology and Lead for Gerber’s PPE Task Force. "#TyvekTogether fully supports our #GerberJoinsForces program to bring key industry leaders together to greatly increase the availability of PPE."
Gerber Technology is bringing together their global network of manufacturers and suppliers to increase production of PPE and make it more widely available. Through their PPE Task Force, Gerber's team of experts is helping manufacturers of all industries retool and optimize their supply by providing the technology, support and resources they need for fast, efficient, and sustainable PPE production. Gerber has set up a robust resource library which includes production-ready patterns, cut files, markers, and tech packs. In addition, Gerber has also created a PPE Manufacturer Matchmaking Program to promote collaboration among manufacturers and suppliers.
“DuPont is proud to be working with the Gerber PPE Task Force and we are committed to increasing the availability of gowns and coveralls made with Tyvek® to support the frontline workers in the response to COVID-19.”
