‘My Pillow’ founder and CEO Mike Lindell announced this week his company will be manufacturing emergency, life-saving equipment -including face masks- to help Americans combat the growing Coronavirus outbreak.
“We have capacity to make a lot of things at big rates and we’re going to be going hopefully from 10,000 units a day to 50,000 units a day in a very short period of time,” CEO Mike Lindell told FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
The Minneapolis-based company will shift 75% of its production company to help manufacture the equipment.
