NCTO calls for strategic plan to onshore critical medical supplies


Klim Glass, President and CEO, NCTO has urged for urgent government support for a vital domestic PPE supply chain, while also shining a light on an agile manufacturing engine that grew out of the pandemic and is fully capable of supplying PPE.

The National Council of Textile Organizations urged the US government to take bipartisan action to re-shore vital production of PPE, critical medical supplies, and other items to the United States, incentivize private sector purchases of American-made PPE, require that U.S. taxpayer dollars be spent on US-made PPE, deploy existing government resources, such as the Defense Production Act, to spur investment in U.S. manufacturing jobs and PPE production, extend Berry Amendment procurement rules to cover more federal agencies and products, implement a strategic federal investment and production plan to revitalize U. manufacturing and the domestic public health industrial baseandina and strong trade enforcement

NCTO is a Washington, DC-based trade association that represents domestic textile manufacturers.
