Three enterprises in the cities of Nizhnekamsk, Naberezhnye Chelny, and Yelabuga are completing the commissioning of four lines for the production of disposable facemasks. Today, production lines produce 140 masks per minute. Raw materials for them are fully provided by republic’s Elastik Plant and Polymatiz.
The companies expect to reach full design capacity for the production of disposable facemasks (which will be about 10 million products a month) in early May. They have already submitted documents to the Russia’s Federal Service for the Supervision of Public Health and Social Development for obtaining a registration certificate, which would allow them to supply personal protective equipment to republic’s medical institutions and pharmacy chains.
