SA company shifting gears from leather goods to face masks
Leather production has come to a halt due to the current corona crisis. But that doesn’t mean producers are twiddling their thumbs in isolation, at least not John Hart Design from San Antonia, United States. Though 80% of their staff was sent home, their new production line allows some to come back in. Their product: face masks.
Production is now ramping up as the need for protective gear in the United States is high and allows the factory to contribute to the ongoing crisis. John Hart Design expects to be able to produce up to 10,000 masks per week when everything is up and running. Saddleback leather in Fort Worth is doing the same, contributing in any way they can to fighting the virus.
Initiatives like this can be seen throughout the whole supply chain and they are heart warming, as these are all companies stricken by the current situation. All chipping in, as best as they can, to bring the economy back to life.
