New Balance is doing its part in combating the COVID-19 crisis by manufacturing face masks for hospitals. The footwear company plans to work with government officials and local medical institutions to close the gap on the lack of masks that hospital professionals have been dealing with.
New Balance will be making prototypes in the manufacturing facility in Lawrence, Massachusetts. They will begin scaling production once adequate prototypes are confirmed. Judging by their recent post on Instagram, there seems to be a sample of a mask from the company with the slogan that reads “Made shoes yesterday. Making masks today.”
