Woman-owned New York-based manufacturer, Altor Safety LLC, receives $800,000 grant from New York State to enhance the production of face masks to fight the COVID-19 pandemic
— Altor Safety LLC was recently named as one of the beneficiaries of the $4.9 Million in incentives that the New York State is awarding to manufacturers to enhance the production of PPE items as the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. Founded by two passionate and innovative entrepreneurs, Rochelle and Russell Fawkes, and Jonathan Scott, Altor Safety LLC has become increasingly popular for their quality face masks, a feature that has helped them to access $800,000 grant from the state.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted lives and businesses across the globe. The United States of America remains the worst-hit nation with more than 14.9 million confirmed cases and over 287 thousand deaths. While the second wave of the virus seems to be rearing its ugly head, a number of pharmaceutical companies have developed vaccines to combat the pandemic. However, PPE items have not been particularly available as required due to increasing demand, which is where Altor Safety LLC is looking to be of help, particularly with the recently received grant from the state government.
The company produces berry-compliant masks made with 100% USA raw material, distributing about 3 million FDA-approved, 3-ply disposable face masks monthly. Altor Safety LLC has already invested over $2.5 million to purchase machinery, equipment, and raw materials to manufacture and distribute product. The grant from the state government will further enhance their operations as the company continues in the pursuit of keeping as many people across the country safe.
Altor Safety is one of eight companies in New York that got $4 million for making PPE items to combat the pandemic. Consequently, Altor, as required by the New York Empire State Development Grant will steer a minimum of 40 percent of its production of masks and other PPE products to New York.
