In the fight against the novel coronavirus, medical masks are a vital item for healthcare workers on the frontline. Kolesnov states, “We are fully aware that access to PPE is challanging and we must secure the production of such an important item to encourage business organizations and public health through the recovery period.”
Detailed research on face masks have been conducted by the BelEmsa R&D project team since the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, Kolesnov adds. “We were aware that performance and comfort requirements must be offered under hygienic conditions due to public needs. We applied extensive know-how accumulated through our experience and created soft earloop masks for perfect fit and comfortable use. Meanwhile, BelEmsa worked closely with EC accredited laboratories and German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) for manufacturing facilities at European standards.
"We risk significant amount of funds and invested millions in machinery, raw materials, hundreds of new employees and factory space to manufacture an item projected to have a short-lived demand. However, contributing to society has become one of our key priorities under the current circumstances,” he continues.
According to Kolesnov, BelEmsa has never experienced challenges in nonwoven materials, logistics and other key equipments thanks to its long standing experience and reputation in the hygiene industry. He adds, “We have always been a reliable partner to the governments and healthcare institutions to ensure high-quality medical products."
Kolesnov ends, “Im proud of the fantastic efforts of our operational team took our business out of China and brought to home. BelEmsa become the first company producing comfy earloop masks in Europe and offering this innovative item with the Senso Med brand since June.”
