Shawmut announces new health and safety business unit focusing on US production of PPEs; includes meltblown line




WEST BRIDGEWATER, MA, February 17, 2021-

Today, Shawmut Corporation announced the creation of a new Health & Safety business unit that will apply the company’s trademark advanced materials, textile manufacturing and process innovation techniques to producing high-quality, US-made, health and safety products, including its Protex™ line of US-made PPE.

A fourth-generation, family-run, global company with locations in North America, Europe and Asia, Shawmut specializes in manufacturing high-performance advanced materials for a wide range of industries, including automotive, medical, industrial, and military applications. Shawmut had historically produced medical-grade barrier fabrics and certain inflatable and orthopedic medical devices but broadened its medical focus in Spring 2020 to include PPE for the COVID-19 pandemic. Shawmut now manufactures medical isolation gowns and surgical barrier fabrics and rapidly developed an N95 particulate respirator that will be available for sale in the coming weeks.
