Rep. Luria tours USA manufacturing facility
With the potential for another uptick in coronavirus cases in the United States, the need for personal protective equipment continues to rise. Premium-PPE in Virginia Beach is investing $5.3 million to expand and meet increased demand. That also means new jobs in the resort city.
Governor Ralph Northam
“Throughout the course of this public health crisis, we have seen Virginia manufacturers like Premium-PPE adapt their business models to stay viable and help keep people safe,” said Governor Northam. “As we saw at the beginning of this global pandemic, without a dedicated supply chain for manufacturing masks and other personal protective equipment in the United States, we would be forced to rely on overseas shipments that are often hard to get and come with exorbitant prices. By growing its manufacturing capabilities, Premium-PPE will help support our present and future needs and continue to play a vital role in producing critical health care supplies for the Commonwealth and states across our country.”
