Join forces and save lives, transition to the production of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

In March, we created the Gerber PPE Task Force to support our customers as they need to increase their production and/or transition to manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE). Since then we have helped over 1,700 companies retool their supply chains for PPE. "Gerber was above all a proactive partner who was there from the start to guide the process along the entire value chain.” During times like these, we need to band together, think creatively, and act fast to protect our communities. We are committed to being the partner you need to efficiently transition to PPE and keep your community safe during these uncertain times.


By joining the Gerber PPE Task Force, you will receive access to a number of resources and services including:

  • Production-ready patterns, cut files, markers, tech packs and more.
  • Help with the setup of cutter parameters specific to the selected fabrics.
  • Training, software, equipment and service technicians to ramp up production.
  • Support for changing over current production lines to the production of PPE.
  • Contact information for fellow suppliers and manufacturers through our PPE Manufacturing Matchmaking Program, making it easier to connect manufacturing capacity of sewing and cutting.
  • Introducing existing PPE manufacturers to those converting to PPE production.
  • Production-ready files and recommended materials for applications related to labels, placards and signage.

Please fill out this form. Our experts will then get back to you shortly to discuss collaboration options with you. Other companies wanting to partner with Gerber on this critical initiative can also use this form to be part of our resource network. See our frequently asked questions.
