Newberg, Ore., April 1, 2020 – A-dec announced today that they are manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE) in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been working to develop a variety of PPE products that are in critical need by healthcare workers.

“For more than 55 years, A-dec has lived by the principle of prioritizing concern for people above all else.” said Scott Parrish, A-dec president and CEO. “As a family-owned, Newberg manufacturer, A-dec is proud to bring much-needed PPE to Oregon’s healthcare workers. This is what we should be doing during this unprecedented time: working together to solve problems and take care of communities.”

In the wake of the COVID-19, A-dec launched programs and infection control resources to support healthcare professionals practicing dentistry during the crisis. After being contacted by a local healthcare worker from Legacy Health with a request for assistance, A-dec employees worked around the clock over a weekend to develop prototypes of needed supplies. Over the course of just over one week, A-dec has converted several of our manufacturing areas to produce PPE for health and emergency responder systems in the local area.

While A-dec and its partners in healthcare have been able to mobilize our efforts, there is a prevalent shortage of the raw materials needed to make these products. A-dec is calling on other product makers, suppliers, and organizations to support these efforts and reduce the continued risk exposure of workers and patients during this global emergency.
