Beyond the machines manufactured at Eastman, the company supplies a worldwide customer network with critical parts, technical service and remote support from its headquarters in Buffalo, NY. As a supplier to both small and large companies, Eastman machines are in high-demand during this unanticipated ‘war’ against COVID-19. The company manufactures the technology that American apparel and textile manufacturers are using as they align forces to respond to the national emergency.
Eastman offers a wide variety of industrial fabrics cutting solutions, both manually-operated and fully automated, CNC cutting systems for materials that must meet performance regulations related to bacterial filtration, resistance to penetration from microorganisms, body fluids, and other contaminants from one person to another.
Cutting flexible technical textiles is often the first phase of manufacturing in the now critical production of masks, hospital bedding, gowns, curtains, gloves, first aid items, medical wipes, laboratory coats and other PPE. Eastman has been fielding calls from current customers around the globe who traditionally cut flexible materials for applications as varied as skis, window blinds and spa covers who are now transitioning their operations to aid other industries deemed essential: health care, utility, military and law enforcement, transportation, safety and sanitation, agriculture and construction.
Robert Stevenson, Eastman Machine President and CEO, says:
“All of us at Eastman are an important part of this fight. I am thankful for our employees and customers who continue to do their part to help America beat this virus.”
