With the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 increasing, Tukatech has been trying to give global assistance to businesses in the apparel industry, enabling them to keep their business up and running through this pandemic. Many businesses around the globe are now faced with closing and asking workers to work remotely. As the numbers increase, more and more manufacturers are shifting their focus to manufacturing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and working from home. The company is working to assist these businesses, providing them with cloud-based solutions.
“We are inspired by the apparel manufacturers who are pivoting their business to produce medical products,” said Chris Walia, chief operating officer of Tukatech. “Tukatech is here to help by providing patterns for sewn medical products, like face masks, hospital gowns, shoe covers, coveralls, blankets or any other equipment that could help medical professionals in their fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Many manufacturers are now in the front lines working with local hospitals, doctors, nurses and other essential service providers.
“I have worked diligently with many of our partners around the world who have converted their manufacturing facilities into emergency medical suppliers,” said Ram Sareen, founder and CEO of Tukatech. “I want to thank many of our customers, TUKAcenters and our team members who are working to help make patterns, markers, support factories making medical and survival products.”
At the request of the California Fashion Association (CFA), Ilse Metchek, founder of CFA, and Tukatech are providing California apparel businesses with CAD cloud solutions, including training and support at no cost to both customers and those using a competitor’s solution.
