Work is under way to produce critically needed face masks at nearly a dozen P&G manufacturing sites around the world. We’re up and running already in China. We have teams working to install capacity in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and will quickly quickly begin production by the end of April 2020. This is important for several reasons:
- It will increase the supply of masks for hospitals, first responders and other organizations by reducing market demand for production and industrial use;
- It helps us create a safe working environment for P&G people;
- Long term, it will allow us to directly help many communities across the globe where there is unprecedented need for protective supplies.
