California Manufacturers Step Up With PPE Portal to Help Gov. Newsom Re-Open State's Economy
CMTA launches online tool to mobilize new wave of fabrication of safety equipment, allowing workers in all sectors to return to their jobs.
SACRAMENTO, CA - Today Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a significant step intended to ease the process of putting California back to work. A partnership between the California Manufacturers & Technology Association (CMTA) and the State of California has created the "Safely Making California" Marketplace (SafelyMakingCA.org) to help fill a critical gap during the COVID19 pandemic. The program went online this week to connect CMTA member manufacturers and other manufacturers to employers who have the need to purchase non-medical grade Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
