Pivot & Shifted to Producing PPE During a Global Pandemic

At the height of the pandemic and beginning of Ontario’s shut-down in March 2020, Kathy and her team saw the critical need for PPE and quickly retooled and pivoted to deliver ready-to-wear reusable mask packs and ready-to-assemble DIY mask kits to assist frontline workers and vulnerable communities. While some manufacturers started shifting production, many were faced with a number of challenges getting products into the market, including U.S. border closures, and supply chains ceasing operations. Despite these challenges, Kathy and her business was ready to help.
