More than half a billion masks produced in Montreal in two years

More than 525 million surgical masks and N95 respirators have been produced in Montreal in two years by the Quebec company Medicom.

"Producing more than half a billion N95 masks and respirators in the midst of a pandemic is a herculean effort," said Médicom chief operating officer Guillaume Laverdure.

A world leader in the production of personal protective equipment (PPE), Medicom quickly responded to the call from the federal government at the start of the pandemic. In less than three months, the company transformed an old warehouse into a factory. No less than 15 mask and respirator production lines had been started in July 2020.

"The Quebec company Medicom responded to the Government of Canada's call to action by offering innovative solutions to provide the personal protective equipment necessary to fight the pandemic when we needed it most," said underlined the Federal Minister of Health, Jean-Yves Duclos. The latter took the opportunity to thank the employees of the company who worked hard to produce protective equipment.

Today, 23 production lines produce nearly 1.5 million surgical and N95 masks daily.

“By building and consolidating our factory, we have strengthened our autonomy in the production and supply of PPE equipment in Canada and increased our resilience in the face of the unstable nature of global supply chains,” explained Mr. Laverdure.
