P. Graham Dunn produces PPE to help the medical community
P. Graham Dunn has been enlisted to help the medical community during this critical time with the manual production of PPE, otherwise known as personal protective equipment. The factory started producing an initial batch of the equipment on Friday, March 27 with a goal to assemble 85,000 masks with an immediate ship date. The following week, the factory will ramp up resources and plans to assemble an additional 350,000 pieces that will ship upon completion and be utilized in hospitals across the nation.
Once produced, this equipment will ship to Yale Medical Center in New Haven, Connecticut. Ultimately, the masks will be utilized by doctors and nurses that are tirelessly fighting to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Graham Dunn, is thrilled for the opportunity stating: “We are excited to work alongside the medical community and utilize the infrastructure we already have in place at P. Graham Dunn to aide in the fight against this virus. An opportunity like this allows us to keep our factory open and able to assist in this urgent time of need.”
