PROVINCE ORDERING UP TO ONE MILLION MADE-IN-MANITOBA REUSABLE N95 MASKS

In order to make high-quality personal protective equipment available to our front-line health-care workers, the Government has placed an order for reusable N95 masks that were designed and are being produced right here in Manitoba.

Winnipeg-based Precision ADM was selected to finalize the design and produce it in Manitoba at a cost competitive with similar masks produced overseas. The Manitoba government has placed an initial order with Precision ADM for 500,000 of the masks, with an option to purchase an additional 500,000 masks over the next 14 months.

“In these unprecedented times, we are all doing our best to stay safe and help our community in any way we can and, as proud Manitobans, Precision ADM is honoured to have the opportunity to manufacture these essential reusable N95 masks for our front line workers,” said Martin Petrak, co-founder and CEO of Precision ADM. “Working with our Manitoba-based partners BOMImed, Melet Plastics Inc., and the Orthopaedic Innovation Centre, we will create a reliable new Canadian secure supply chain to fight COVID-19.”
