Regional enterprises switch their production to the production of antiseptics and protective masks
On the order of Veniamin Kondratyev, the Governor of the Krasnodar Region, the region has increased the production of antiseptics and disinfectants, as well as the production of protective masks.
To prevent the spread of coronavirus infection, eleven garment factories of the cities of Krasnodar, Novorossiysk, Armavir, and Slavyansky, Korenovsky, Mostovsky and Seversky districts began to manufacture protective masks. Two enterprises produce the masks for medical organizations.
- In total, enterprises of light industry produce more than 12 thousand fabric masks per day. It is important to note that the masks are not medical, but the proper wearing of them helps to reduce the spread of the virus, - said Ivan Kulikov, the Head of the Department of Industrial Policy of the region.
The enterprises noted that there is a great demand for masks among organizations of the region.
Moreover, chemical industry companies are developing the production of new types of products. For example, KubanBytChim, the manufacturer of household chemistry from the city of Novorossiysk and Alpha Himgroup, the manufacturer of automobile chemistry from the city of Armavir have launched the production of antiseptics on their capacities. These enterprises produce about 5 tons of antiseptics of different types per day.
