UK-based Linen Supplier sets up Face Mask Supply Chain

Linen Connect – a leading supplier of bed, bath, kitchen and table linens within the UK textiles market – has entered the process of supplying face masks. The company understands that laundry forms an essential part of the business supply chain in industries from healthcare to hospitality. Through its international supply chain, the company is able to supply three categories of product:

  • CE/FDA approved KN95 masks that comply with the stringent GB2626-2006 standards for respiratory protection; already in use in businesses and healthcare settings around the world.
  • Disposable masks – also CE/FDA approved and complying with the EN 16483 standards.
  • Re-usable masks that are being produced in corporation with some manufacturers in the country.

Since governments move to ease lockdowns and re-open their economies, the health and safety of employees will be vital. Together with social distancing, hand hygiene and other preventative measures, facemasks will no doubt become more commonly used  in their adoption especially in industries such as laundries, manufacturing and logistics. The company is working with some leading manufacturers  in order to secure high quality in disposable and protective masks. The masks meet the recommendations set-out by WHO and other bodies for protection against bacteria and viruses.
