Alabama companies pivot to produce supplies for health care workers

Alabama industries large and small are coming together to support health care workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boeing in Huntsville and Mercedes-Benz in Tuscaloosa County are among the state’s biggest employers that are deploying resources to produce face masks and face shields for hospitals and first responders.

Beyond that, clothing designers, textile manufacturers, breweries and a host of other companies across Alabama have quickly pivoted their daily operations to turn out protective gear, medical equipment and hand sanitizer.

An estimated 45 businesses in the state are looking at shifting to produce personal protective equipment, or PPE, said Alabama Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield.
