West Michigan’s economic development agency launched a directory of businesses that are supplying in-demand personal protective equipment.

The Right Place said Tuesday that it developed and launched a West Michigan PPE supplier directory on its website featuring West Michigan manufacturers who are producing high-demand PPE supplies, along with contact information to procure the supplies.

As West Michigan begins the process of a phased reopening, companies can use the directory to fulfill their PPE supply needs and ensure a safe workplace reopening, according to The Right Place.

“As the region’s employers begin the process of restarting operations, we are proud to offer this resource to assist them in securing PPE from local manufacturers,” said Birgit Klohs, president and CEO, The Right Place Inc. “The depth and breadth of the PPE available showcases the manufacturing prowess of our region. We are still a community who makes things, and this expertise has served us well as the community navigates this crisis.”

Companies can use the directory to source a wide variety of commonly needed types of PPE, such as face masks and shields, gowns, goggles, gloves, sanitization products, thermometers and more. More than 60 local companies are featured in the directory, and products and manufacturers are being added regularly.

West Michigan manufacturers producing PPE who would like to be added to the list can contact The Right Place at PPEequip@rightplace.org​​.
