Greek Textile, Apparel Producers Ready To Supply Masks


Fifty five Greek textile and apparel production firms are ready to supply the domestic market with eight million face masks a month to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, according to the Association of Apparel and Textile Producers (SEPEE), whose director general Theofilos Aslanidis recently said domestic sufficiency in face masks can be assured.

SEPEE sent letters to 560 businesses in the sector asking who could contribute to efforts to ensure that the Greek population has a sufficient supply of paper and cloth face masks. Fifty five responded to his astonishment, according to a news agency report.

Some of the 55 firms were already producing masks, while others have seen production slump since the start of the health crisis.

The prices will be determined based on supply, demand and the quantity of production, he added.
