Made in USA Face Masks
Early estimations indicate the 570,000-square-foot Wisconsin manufacturing facility will be capable of manufacturing over 100 million disposable 3-ply face masks per month.
Considering the World Health Organization has estimated that monthly face mask requirements could total 89 million* for medical use alone, IRIS USA is capable of making a major impact on current demands for PPE.
