Posted May 27, 2020

 

GASTONIA, N.C. – Beverly Knits, one of the largest circular knitters in the U.S., has announced a donation of industrial sewing machines from Brother International Corporation.

 

This donation will allow Creative Ticking, the cut-and-sew division of Beverly Knits, to support the need for face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. The face masks will be supplied directly to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

 

The donated machines include five Brother S7250A-403 single-needle lockstitch industrial sewing machines. The donation will allow Beverly Knits to significantly increase their current face mask production numbers.

 

“Brother remains committed to aiding our communities during these challenging times,” said Don Cummins, president, Brother International Corporation USA. “Given the severe and growing shortage of personal protective equipment, Brother is proud to donate our products to support these stalwart manufacturers with their efforts in making masks for our frontline workers.”

 

Beverly Knits has currently partnered with 30 other companies in the textile industry across the U.S. to produce face masks for HHS. The goal is to produce up to 2 million masks per week.

 

“Continued support and collaboration within the textile industry is key to flattening the COVID-19 curve,” said Ron Sytz, CEO of Beverly Knits. “We appreciate this generous donation from Brother that will help the industry advance the cause at a more rapid pace.”

 

Beverly Knits operates in 370,000 square feet of space with more than 300 knitting machines. Two hundred and ninety-five associates produce more than 30 million meters of fabric annually.

 

Anyone who wants to participate can send email to USAfacemask@beverlyknits.com to get involved in flattening the curve.
