Where did your PPP money go? Farris put their loan and talents to use by developing a new custom machine that can produce 10,000 BFE99 certified, disposable masks in 8 hours.
When the demand for capital equipment dropped due to the economic downturn in 2020, Farris needed to pivot their core business in order to retain their talented employees. They asked themselves, "Why can’t the US produce disposable masks locally instead of importing a vast majority of them from overseas?"
Farris found that by utilizing aggressive automation principals and equipment, they can meet or even beat the price of overseas suppliers. With the combination of internal talents, company investments, and the PPP loan funds, they designed and built a custom machine in two months.
In 2021, Farris plans to replicate the PPP machine into four highly automated face mask machines that will run lights out with 100% quality control inspection and robotic packaging. This line will be able to produce over 28 million masks per year at the same price of masks imported from China.
