Manufacturers needed to produce masks and gowns

The Missouri Department of Economic Development is coordinating an effort to increase the personal protective equipment (PPE) medical equipment supply chain. The department is seeking manufacturers who are currently producing or could shift their production to make these products. The two most needed items are N95 medical masks and basic medical gowns (large and extra-large sizes).


If your company can help, please submit responses to the following questions to Michelle Hataway at Michelle.Hataway@ded.mo.gov.

  • Which item can your produce? Mask? Gown? Both?
  • When can you start production?
  • Potential daily output?
  • Do you already have the supply chain established for these products? If not, what would you need to acquire?
  • Are there other production factors that need to be resolved before you could make these products?
  • Can you provide a basic cost estimate? Utilize whatever per quantity or per unit pricing is most relevant for you.
  • Are there other items that need to be addressed?
  • Are you willing but need much more information before you can respond?
