The Industry Pitches In

Pool and hot tub manufacturers are finding ways to help their communities

Balboa Water Group
Balboa is manufacturing and donating thousands of masks each week to government organizations, hospitals, first responders, firefighters and police.

The safety netting manufacturer created zones on its production floor to assemble gowns for hospitals in need. InCord purchased additional sewing machines for the type of light weight material requested by hospitals that have a certain stitch that allows for laundering. They are also sewing cloth face masks for internal use, employees and families working remotely and workers who need to enter their facility.

Pleatco Filtration
Pleatco is supplying filtration media comparable to a N95 face mask to an organization called Sew Blessed. This organization is sewing safety face-masks all over Kentucky and Indiana to supply to healthcare workers and first responders. The rolls of Pleatco filtration media will be used as filter patch inserts in the masks.
