SVP Denise Rutherford on the 3M response to the pandemic
At 3M, we are fully committed to helping fight the spread of COVID-19 by supporting the healthcare workers in the United States and worldwide.
This pandemic is affecting all of us, and we are doing everything we can to support public health – including doubling our global output of N95 respirators and getting them to healthcare providers on the front lines of the pandemic.
“We are mobilizing all available resources and rapidly increasing output of critical supplies healthcare workers in the United States and around the world need to help protect their lives as they treat others,” says Mike Roman, 3M chairman and chief executive officer.
We are working with governments, medical officials, customers and distributors around the world to help get supplies where they are needed most.
We encourage customers to work with their normal sales and distribution partners when it comes to sourcing product.
