Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is stepping in to help those at the front line of the COVID-19 (or Coronavirus) pandemic by manufacturing and donating more than 1 million protective face masks per month.

The face masks are to be donated by FCA to police, EMTs and firefighters, as well as to workers in hospitals and health care clinics. This action is the first of a multifaceted global program being developed by the company through applying manufacturing, supply chain, and engineering expertise to support the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commenting on this initiative, FCA CEO Mike Manley said: “Protecting our first responders and health care workers have never been more important. In addition to the support we are giving to increase the production of ventilators, we canvassed our contacts across the healthcare industry and it was very clear that there is an urgent and critical need for face masks. We’ve marshaled the resources of the FCA Group to focus immediately on installing production capacity for making masks and supporting those most in need on the front line of this pandemic.”
