Medicom Increases Production as Demand Increases Due to Coronavirus Outbreak

Medicom’s unique value proposition

Medicom Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and distributors of high-quality infection control products, including surgical, procedural and respiratory face masks. With three decades of scientific expertise, an extensive global network of raw material suppliers and manufacturing operations strategically distributed across three continents, Medicom is uniquely positioned to meet the exponential demand for products like face masks during worldwide health crises like the current Coronavirus outbreak.

Medicom Stays Ahead of the Curve in Times of Need

When several local governments began restricting exports of medical face masks, many infection control companies whose manufacturing facilities are located in Asia struggled to find alternative sources, whereas Medicom was able to simply increase mask manufacturing operations at its production facilities in France and the United States.

Under normal circumstances, the plant manufactures more than 170 million masks per year. They currently have orders for 500 million units.

The Medicom Group’s Kolmi-Hopen facility, located near Angers, France, is currently working at full capacity to meet the exponential demand being generated by the Coronavirus outbreak.

In response to the worldwide increase in demand, employees are working overtime and additional personnel is being hired to further increase output.

Local press coverage has been extensive, including reports by RTL, 20 Minutes, BMF TV, France Info, Ouest-France, C News and France TV

The Group’s U.S. plant, UME, located in Augusta, Georgia, has also increased mask production, adding extra shifts and securing incremental raw materials to help offset the impact of the Chinese export ban.
