High Point, NC April 20, 2020--As more and more companies try to assist in the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited that a local company has shifted production to mask-making.
Colonial LLC, based in High Point NC, is a leader in mattress display and branding. They are working with a number of companies including Hanes Brands, Inc., Beverly Knits and Parkdale Mills in producing FEMA approved masks. Due to overwhelming demand and inquiries from several companies, along with the FEMA approved masks, Colonial is also producing non-Federally approved masks for companies all over the United States, Canada and even a location in France that are in need of masks and unable to source N95 or FDA approved mask. These masks can be used individually or over N95 to increase longevity. Currently the masks are being produced for a number of agriculture and industrial businesses.
Wes Keever, President of Colonial stated, “Colonial is honored to partner with some great companies in an effort to make a real difference during such unprecendented times. When our management team decided we needed to get involved, we knew we had the skills, but needed to make sure we were part of the right team that had a distribution and most importantly government approval so these pieces made a true difference in peoples lives. Our team has done an unbelievable job with this project. We made capital investments in machines and investments in our people to make sure we made good on our promises. Because it is built into our DNA as a company, we are constantly looking for ways to improve the efficiency of our production and make changes to increase our productivity so we can produce as many masks as possible as quickly as possible to get into the hands of those that need them most.”
Colonial’s new division, K-5 Solutions, will be providing fulfilment in NC and beyond. K-5 Solutions is also well positioned to help other companies get back on their feet with warehousing, distribution and inventory management, when their doors reopen says Tim Lawson, Director of Sales and Market Development. We must all work together to help rebuild our infrastructure. For orders or more information, visit https://colonialllc.com/contact/
