Dräger expands capacity for respiratory masks and sets up a production facility in UK

brian mcgowan ixgRYSGBMaM unsplashPPE equipment manufacturer Dräger has received an order from the British government to deliver respiratory protection masks (FFP3) in connection with the COVID 19 pandemic

Delivery of the order will start in 2020 and extend until the end of 2021. The company added that the net sales expected are around US$114mn.

For this purpose a mask production facility will be set up in the UK, in the Blyth area of Northumberland.

There, Dräger has had a development and production site for respiratory protection technology for firefighters and industry for more than 50 years. This is in addition to the existing production network in Sweden and South Africa and the recently decided new production sites in France and the US.

Rainer Klug, chief officer of safety division at Dräger, said, “With this additional production unit, Dräger will increase volumes quickly and flexibly. Our international production network enables us to react very quickly and specifically to national or local requirements on the one hand, and to cover international requirements in a closely networked and flexible manner on the other.

Dräger thus operates a highly responsive manufacturing system for certified FFP respiratory protection masks, with a product design originating from our own development in Germany.”
