The US Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded Puritan Medical Products a $75.5 million investment as part of the Defence Production Act Title 3 funding.

This investment will increase swab production by 20 million units per month from May 2020 onwards and will fund a new manufacturing facility in Pittsfield, Maine. As a result, the company will be capable of expanding output to 40 million medical swabs each month.

In addition, the company will expand its workforce by employing an extra 150 people to work at the new Pittsfield site, according to Lt Col Mike Andrews, a spokesperson at the DoD.
