This was also an opportunity to learn firsthand how CPI pivoted to form ProTEC-USA at the forefront of the pandemic, producing medical gowns for frontline local workers in dire need. The company was awarded grants through Oakland County, which helped support efforts to ramp up production and provide gowns for hospitals throughout metro Detroit.
“COVID-19 exacerbated market demands that were already growing prior to the pandemic,” said Don Lowe, Spokesperson, ProTEC-USA. “This investment from the company in upgrades and enhancements to production lines and equipment will boost our capacity in order to better meet demand.
