3M is the largest manufacturer of the N95 respirators in the United States of America (USA). It manufactures various products like N95 respirators, surgical masks, disinfectants, scrubs, tapes, sandpapers, hand sanitizers, face shields, and eye protection, etc. 3M has manufactured crucial Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to facilitate the public, doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals. 3M manufactures products for various fields like the United States healthcare and industry.
3M has manufactured an immense number of N95 respirators for the healthcare professionals who are putting their lives on the line for the people who have been infected by the novel coronavirus. 3M has played a crucial role for the public, healthcare professionals, doctors, nurses, and physicians, etc. 3M has sold more than four hundred million N95 respirators since the novel coronavirus came to the United States and eight hundred million N95 respirators to the world.
3M made around thirty-two billion dollars in 2019 by selling sandpaper. It has been predicted that 3M will have made one billion dollars by the start of 2021 just by selling N95 respirators. A respiratory protective device that keeps an individual safe from harmful and contagious diseases is called the N95 respirator. The N95 respirator is ninety-five percent effective at filtering out airborne particles that could cause harm to an individual’s health and cause various life-threatening diseases.
The N95 respirator is the safest Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for filtering out harmful airborne particles. The N95 respirator filters out particles that are smaller than 0.3um. Since they can filter out particles with such a small size, they are considered the best. In addition to that, the N95 respirators have been approved by NIOSH; this means that the quality of the N95 respirator is good, which is a good thing for the customers and people who want to keep themselves safe from COVID-19.
Before the pandemic hit the United States, the manufacturers at 3M were already manufacturing N95 respirators for the people of Australia; this is because the wildfires had broken out in Australia, and the majority of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) was being manufactured by 3M. Since they had manufactured N95 respirators in large amounts for Australia, they sold those N95 respirators to the people of the United States when the pandemic hit the United States. A large number of people bought the N95 respirators in sufficient amounts.
Therefore, 3M was already somewhat prepared for the pandemic, and this is the primary reason why they sold the most number of N95 respirators in the United States. No company in the United States has sold as many N95 respirators as 3M. Since 3M has been manufacturing a large amount of N95 respirators, they had also started manufacturing crucial Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) like hand sanitizers, face shields, eye protection, and disinfectants, etc.
Healthcare professionals are the ones who purchase PPE like eye protection, face shields, hand sanitizers, and disinfectants; this is because they have to keep themselves safe while treating infected patients. Since the cases of COVID-19 have been increasing in the United States, the demand for N95 respirators has been accelerating at a very fast rate as well. Since 3M is the leading manufacturer of N95 respirators, they had to open two more buildings, as in manufacturing sites, to increase the manufacturing capacity of N95 respirators.
Since the demand for the N95 respirators has risen, 3M has started manufacturing N95 respirators at a fast pace. To manufacture more N95 respirators, 3M has opened two more buildings to manufacture more N95 respirators. Because of opening two more construction sites, 3M has created one hundred more jobs for the people who know how to manufacture N95 respirators and other crucial Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) related to the N95 respirator.
Because of manufacturing millions of N95 respirators and other crucial PPE, the economy of the United States has boosted a lot. Hundreds of jobs have also come into existence because of the novel coronavirus. Since 3M had already had N95 respirators and had known what would happen, they had already started manufacturing N95 respirators before the pandemic came to the United States; this is because they had already anticipated what would happen if the novel coronavirus came to the United States.
Therefore, they started manufacturing N95 respirators at a very fast rate because they had known that the demand for N95 respirators would increase. 3M announced on Friday that they will start manufacturing N95 respirators in those buildings because of the immense demand for N95 respirators during the novel coronavirus. Because of opening those two buildings, the production of N95 respirators will increase drastically; this means that more N95 respirators will be sold to the public of the United States. All of this would be beneficial for Americans as well as the economy of the United States.
Before the pandemic came to the United States, 3M had already anticipated that the demand for N95 respirators would arise because of the novel coronavirus. Since they had anticipated that, 3M would start manufacturing N95 respirators for the public of the United States. Furthermore, they exported some of their products to other countries as well. Recently, they opened two buildings to boost the production of N95 respirators in the United States; this has created more than one hundred jobs and boosted the economy of the United States.
