Standard Textile was presented with the “Best Health Care and Medical Innovation” Award by Ohio Business Magazine in recognition of our rapid development of a new American-made essential reusable cover gown for health care workers in 2020.
In reflecting on the challenges of 2020, the editors of Ohio Business Magazine designated that the publication’s annual Ohio Success Awards shift focus to businesses across the state that responded to the fight against COVID-19 with quick-thinking, innovation, and compassion.
At the onset of the pandemic, Standard Textile restructured our entire supply chain to provide support for America’s frontline medical workers. By converting manufacturing operations and prioritizing the distribution of medical garments at our manufacturing and distribution facilities across the United States, we worked to ensure that our customers and our communities had continuous access to essential supplies needed to safeguard the health of clinicians, patients, and their families.
In a collaborative effort between our CORE research and development laboratory, and our operations in Thomaston, Georgia and Union, South Carolina, our team rapidly developed a unique American version of a liquid-resistant, breathable, and reusable cover gown for healthcare workers.
“With American based manufacturing operations and a local rapid prototyping and innovation center, we are uniquely positioned to leverage our extensive technical expertise and facilities to urgently provide needed personal protective equipment,” said Dr. Richard Holbert, Director of Development for Standard Textile. “In three short weeks during the spring of 2020, we orchestrated fabric development, material sourcing, garment fabrication, wash durability testing, and other product testing to deliver an essential reusable gown for our medical communities,” said Dr. Holbert.
Standard Textile congratulates other Ohio based businesses who were recognized for playing a pivotal role in Ohio’s fight against COVID-19.
