This initiative is run by Vulcan Machine Co., based in Fort Valley, Virginia. Vulcan Machine Co manufactures CNC milling machines, and has a deeply rooted supply chain in China. This global supply chain has retooled and is now producing face masks, nitrile gloves, and other crucial PPE. With suppliers pivoting to support the Covid-19 pandemic, Vulcan leadership saw the opportunity to leverage our commercial partnerships, and do our part by procuring, importing, and distributing masks and gloves at low cost to areas most affected by the pandemic.
This Emergency PPE initiative was originated by the co-founders of Vulcan, but quickly grew to a team of entrepreneurs, engineers, medical professionals, retired military, a former Microsoft and Amazon executive, a career import/export executive, and other small business owners.
We are currently engaged with parties across the US to procure and deliver both low and high volume shipments of PPE at competitive pricing. We are working with state and local governments, hospitals, research labs, charities, businesses, the military, and other groups who are searching for and struggling to find sources for this gear. In addition, we are spearheading a charitable effort to donate PPE to National Guard units.
Capacity is changing consistently with our suppliers, as global demand is surging. If you decide to place an order, we will lock in capacity and a price in USD, insulated from exchange rate changes for 24 hours with the suppliers.
Let us know how we can help. We are here to find solutions.
Our mission is to do everything in our power to get masks, face shields, and other PPE from the factories producing it to the governments, hospitals, and other entities that need it most.
