ProTEC-USA Announces Expanded Medical Gown Manufacturing Capabilities

July 16, 2021 GMT

TROY, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 16, 2021--

ProTEC-USA has announced the debut of a new, state of the art production work cell that will expand and enhance its capacity to produce EZDoff medical gowns for healthcare and other critical industries.

A subsidiary of Troy, Michigan-based Cadillac Products, Inc., in-house extrusion, film converting and gown manufacturing capabilities from the company’s facilities in the USA allow ProTEC-USA to serve as a strategic, domestic supply chain partner, delivering high-quality gowns with volume-level pricing.

“COVID-19 exacerbated market demands that were already growing prior to the pandemic,” said Don Lowe, Spokesperson, ProTEC-USA. “This investment from the company in upgrades and enhancements to production lines and equipment will boost our capacity in order to better meet demand.

The new, proprietary work cell was completely designed and built in-house, addressing all the needs for quality control and optimal cost. These gowns will be available in three color options—blue, yellow or white—and will also be available with level 1, 2 or 3 compliance, based on the depth of protective needs of the user.

“EZDoff gowns are designed to not only maintain effectiveness and mitigate potential self-contamination, but also to be mindful of the manner in which the gowns are donned and doffed in sequence with other PPE,” said Lowe. “Without touching the outside surface of the EZDoff gown to remove it, the wearer is protected against consequential contamination.”

EZDoff gowns offer several features and benefits for wearers, including:

- Perforated rear yoke for safe, easy doffing of medical gowns

- Sleeve with thumb loop for full arm and wrist protection, simultaneous glove donning

- Apron closure to maintain the user’s coolness during work performance

- Compliance with all AAMI and FDA specifications and requirements

The Michigan Economic Development Corporation supported ProTEC-USA with a State Trade Expansion Program grant, which was used to accelerate their growth in global markets.

“Michigan is grateful to ProTEC-USA for stepping up to meet the demand for critical medical supplies, and we congratulate the company as it launches this new production line,” said Michigan Economic Development Corporation Chief Business Development Officer and Executive Vice President Josh Hundt. “Today’s grand opening is yet another reminder that the ingenuity and innovation of our incredible business community here in Michigan remains unmatched. With the help of companies like ProTEC-USA, we can build back our state’s economy stronger than ever before.”
