Tekrider steps up to help COVID-19 with PPE Production
Minden Hills company Tekrider has joined the effort to make personal protective equipment, temporarily switching from producing snowmobile and motorcycle body armour to medical gowns and washable cotton face masks.
As Canada’s medical system grapples with the rapid spread of the coronavirus, calls have gone out to the private sector to help out.
However, becoming a PPE producer isn’t always easy. For Tekrider, the challenge was being designated an essential service, which would allow the plant to continue operations.
