The corona crisis has a tight grip on Europe and the world. Necessary safety equipment, especially protective masks in hospitals and similar institutions are becoming scarce and demand is increasing.

Lots of companies adjust their production and start producing the protective gear. This is an opportunity not just for companies that can alter their manufacturing process to make the equipment but also companies in the secondary line of manufacturing that can help produce machines that then produce the safety equipment
