New Balance scales general-use face mask production

New Balance scales general-use face mask production.

New Balance (NB) has developed and is currently scaling production of general-use face mask as demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) continues to intensify across the country amid COVID-19. Developed in consultation with local medical and R&D institutions, the sports footwear and sports apparel firm recently produced its first face mask prototype.

In parallel, NB is also quickly responding to calls for other PPE including gowns and foot coverings, among other items, with its R&D teams. This includes working towards prototypes and exploring collaborative opportunities that optimise our US-based 3D printing capabilities.
