March 31, 2020

New Balance will be making medical-grade face masks at its U.S. plants as hospitals continue to face shortages of safety equipment amid the spread of the coronavirus.

“We are producing prototypes for face masks in our Lawrence, [Mass.] manufacturing facility and hope to scale production using our other New England factories soon. We are coordinating our efforts with government officials and local medical institutions as well as other U.S. consortiums and testing facilities.”
