Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced Wednesday a new partnership between Texas Military Department (TMD) and Prestige Ameritech that will increase the production and distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Prestige Ameritech’s headquarters, located near Fort Worth, will be manned partly by members of the Texas National Guard 36th Infantry Division and is set to be a 24-hour operation. Prestige Ameritech is the largest manufacturer of surgical masks within the United States.
“I thank these partners for providing this much-needed resource to our health care workers serving our fellow Texans. The Lone Star State remains unwavering in our support for our frontline health care workers as we continue to respond to COVID-19,” said Gov. Abbott in a press release.
