Anderson Fabrics in Blackduck Gears Up to Make a LOT of Facemasks

Jennifer Morrison, sales and marketing director for Anderson Fabrics in Blackduck MN, took some time to talk with Maggie Montgomery from Northern Community Radio about how the company geared up to make cloth face masks during the Covid-19 pandemic. It's a fascinating story of how they created PPE prototypes, tried to source materials on the global market, the dedication of the staff who work at the Blackduck facility, and their appreciation for those on the front lines.

Anderson Fabrics sells its face masks online in large or small quantities for individual or business use here.
