Summit Golf Brands – One Month of Mask Production
One month after converting its Distribution and Decoration facility for mask production, Summit Golf Brands (“SGB”) is celebrating over 20,000 masks made, including thousands which have been donated to first responders and healthcare workers. SGB has continued to support nearby first responders in Iowa County where the Distribution facility is located, hand delivering an additional 500 masks this week
Taking an iterative approach to production and design, SGB began production of protective masks with existing inventory of polos as a source for fabric, using embroidery equipment to assemble the mask components. Subsequent improvements to design, process and equipment have enabled SGB to increase its production capacity to 2,000 units daily.
In response to customer feedback and increased production capacity, SGB has also made their masks more widely available to the public both online at bdraddy.com and for wholesale partners and their staff, including Fortune 500 companies in the insurance, security, restaurant, and healthcare industries.
SGB is now promoting safer and smarter living through the #bsafebsmart campaign, the goal of which is to spread awareness of responsible living by wearing fabric face masks.
SGB President and CEO, Chad Delp, stated, “What began as an effort to help local first responders has grown into something that will help thousands of people nationwide promote safety for themselves and those around them. As the world gradually reopens, we believe wearing protective masks will be a part of this new way of life for some period of time. For as long as they are needed, we will continue trying to be a part of the solution and provide the highest quality protective masks that we can.”
