Garfield NJ – Wearbest Weavers, LLC has been a longstanding supplier of technical performance fabrics to the healthcare industry providing micro and bacterial resistant upholstery product. These durable textiles are bleach cleanable and have been used in hospitals, medical clinics, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shortage of necessary medical supplies, the mill has been successful in creating and pivoting their production to PPE textiles. The protective fabrics Wearbest has tirelessly developed, comply with national standards to meet Barrier Levels I, II and III. The goods are qualified to be fabricated into medical gowns, hospital gowns, isolation gowns and other protective clothing. The Barrier Level 1 fabric offers protection from pathogens and can be washed to commercial standards.
Greg Thomases, Vice President of Wearbest parent company Swavelle added, “I am very proud of our team effort to turn around our production so quickly. We are fortunate to have a US mill that provides us the capability to produce PPE product. We’ve accomplished a lot in just a few weeks and plan to continue innovating through this unprecedented time. Our hope is to help meet the needs of thousands of frontline healthcare workers.”
Wearbest is very proud their entire supply chain is compliant with the Berry Amendment. From raw materials to finished product, everything required is domestically produced.
Being a domestic manufacturer, it is Wearbest’s strong desire to play a vital role in supporting and serving the medical heroes on the front lines of this pandemic.
