Finland to start manufacturing masks domestically after China delivers 2 million bad masks

“‘Our target is to manufacture over 100 million respirators and surgical masks annually in Finland,’ Lifa Air CEO Johan Brandt stated in a release on Wednesday evening.

Lifa Air is a Finnish company that currently manufactures respirators and masks in China. Initial consignments of personal protection equipment for the National Emergency Supply Agency will come from the company’s Chinese plant. Later this spring, Lifa Air will begin PPE manufacturing in Finland, as well.

Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä has said that production will start in Finland within a few weeks.”
