Hudson Praises Textile Coalition Joining Coronavirus Response

 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement on a coalition of companies announced by the National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) to address a shortage of supplies for the coronavirus response. North Carolina-based Parkdale Inc., the largest yarn spinner in the U.S., is helping to lead the efforts.
 
“This coalition of textile companies led by Parkdale is a great example of how all people and industries, from textiles to defense, are coming together to address coronavirus,” said Rep. Hudson. “I applaud these companies for answering President Trump’s call for a united response to this public health pandemic and will continue to support workers and businesses as the response effort continues.”
 
According to the NCTO, the coalition will begin production of face masks today and expects to be able to produce up to 10 million masks per week.
 
Tomorrow, Rep. Hudson will hold a conference call with chambers of commerce from throughout North Carolina’s 8th District to discuss the coronavirus response. A representative of the U.S. Small Business Administration will join the call to highlight resources available to small businesses facing economic loss due to coronavirus. Tomorrow’s call will be the latest Rep. Hudson has conducted to update people in the district on the response effort and hear feedback on what resources are needed. Other calls have included school superintendents, county health directors, hospital networks, VA medical centers and long-term care facilities.
