Bortex Group has switched its local production facility capacity to manufacture medical supplies such as face masks and scrubs for nurses and doctors.

This initiative is being coordinated in support of the Maltese Covid-19 response movement in aid of local hospitals and clinics, the company said.

The clothing company’s retail stores are currently closed and will remain so until the government gives the green light for shops to open again. The company said it is still taking orders online and is providing deliveries but has taken measures to ensure the safety of its workers.
