Gildan to start producing personal protective equipment to help slow the spread of COVID-19

Gildan has joined forces with various partners to produce non-medical face masks and isolation gowns in support of the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this time of uncertainty, we want to ensure you that the health and safety of our employees remains a priority! That’s why we have mobilised a team of experts to develop and implement stringent processes to protect employees coming back to work. Our facilities that will be reopened will operate under a strict biosecurity protocol developed following government mandated guidelines and industry best practices.

At Gildan, we are committed to playing a proactive role in the global fight against this pandemic. Thank you to our partners and everyone who has been working hard to get the required authorisations and plans in place to start the production of these much-needed items, especially our facility workers who have agreed to work during this difficult time.
