NPS Awarded Department of Defense ContractAugust 3, 2020
NPS Corp. has been awarded a US$2.75 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).
The deal calls for NPS to increase domestic production of meltblown fiber, which is used in production of N95 respirators and ASTM-rated surgical masks. To meet the contract needs, NPS will install a new meltbown fiber production line at its Green Bay, Wisconsin, manufacturing plant.
“We are excited and honored to have received the DoD award. NPS will do its utmost to help our country fight Covid-19 by manufacturing the best meltblown filtration material needed for ASTM-rated face masks and N95 respirators. We look forward to helping our nation’s security interests when this machine starts up by providing badly needed domestic production of meltblown for face mask and respirator customers,” said Andrew Hetzel Jr., NPS CEO.
NPS Corp. is a Green Bay, Wisconsin-based manufacturer of custom paper products, wipes, and dispensers. For more information, visit www.npscorp.com.
