Easton swimsuit manufacturer makes and donates PPE

Posted

SWIM USA, the manufacturer of Miraclesuit and many other swim brands, is marshaling its resources to support the efforts of local hospitals near its corporate headquarters in Easton.

SWIM USA staff have volunteered to produce masks and gowns in the company’s sample and design studios, to provide protection for those who need it most.

Placing an emphasis on smaller towns and hospitals, the company hopes to reach those who may not be getting the same aid and attention as larger urban areas.

“We are doing all we can to help others during this crisis,” said Keith Lombardi, president of SWIM USA. “We’re all in this together, and community is at the forefront now more than ever. We’ve been making apparel in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania for over 80 years, and we are using our talented associates and know-how to support the community as best we can.”

Susan DeMusis, President of Miraclesuit, added, “We are proud to be producing masks for health facilities within the tri-state area, including St. Luke’s University Hospital, Lehigh Valley Hospital and Hoboken University Medical Center. We feel fortunate to be able to have our teams move from making swimsuits to producing desperately needed masks and other PPE, hopefully helping medical workers feel more protected during this unprecedented time.”
