Converting cut and sew for COVID-19

This month, New York State recognized Eastman’s Buffalo manufactured products and services as ‘essential’ in the growing demand for PPE around the world. A 130-year old manufacturer of cutting machines, fully automated cutting systems and material handling equipment, the company is receiving calls from current customers converting operations to new materials and products on short notice as well as incoming inquiries from concerned citizens who want to be a part of the support efforts.

Please visit Eastman’s medical industry resources  page to complete the contact form if you require assistance converting your existing machine for different materials, patterns or need additional tools to complete new jobs. Eastman’s team of applications specialists are available to provide guidance on appropriate machine configurations or simple changes to existing operations to meet new material requirements.

Eastman is also connecting existing customers with those seeking contract cutting resources through our Matchmaker program. If you have services to offer and would like special notes added to your listing, please fill out the contact form or email today.
