In order to keep up with the ongoing demand for PPE, HCA Healthcare is investing in an expansion. They will be partnering with A Plus International Inc, which will be a benefit for both parties. And, they have chosen Asheville, North Carolina for the new expansion. This will not only create more face masks to fight COVID-19 but will also create new jobs. So this will help further grow and rebuild the economy.
From Area Development Magazine:
“The recent surge in demand for PPE due to the pandemic has underscored how dependent we have been on supplies from overseas and the importance of working to diversify our supply chain. […] We are [glad] to join forces with the expertise of A Plus on this new business which [focuses] on domestic manufacturing of PPE so that we can continue to support our caregivers on the front line.” […]
“Asheville has a diverse and skilled workforce with the experience to produce these important protective supplies that keep caregivers safe. […] Thanks to the HCA Healthcare Mission Fund, we are honored to welcome this new business to our campus, and we are excited for the job opportunities for our community.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
