In the face of crisis, Illinois manufacturers are rising to the challenge and producing life-saving products, making equipment to protect our first responders, keeping our stores filled with food, ensuring that our homes have power, and much more. The women and men on factor floors are making a difference in this battle.
Governor JB Pritzker asked the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association and the Illinois Biotechnology Association to lead a brand new coordinated effort in Illinois designed to ramp up production of essential products, foster collaboration by companies wanting to help, increase efficiency, and address regulatory challenges. Many wonderful partners are stepping up and engaging in this effort.
Illinois is facing a critical shortage of essential supplies needed by manufacturers, health care providers, and first responders. These include items such as N95 masks, gloves, gowns, ventilators, sanitizer, and more. All of these products will be used in Illinois to help our local communities.
If you have the ability to donate or provide these products, or need help finding suppliers, please complete these forms.
