In a social letter to their readers over the weekend, Industry Nine put out the call to volunteer their CNC machines for the manufacturing of short supply PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). It’s great to see a bike industry brand offer their manufacturing power to support healthcare workers. As a commentor mentioned in our Guide to Bikepacking Amidst COVID-19 article, “Our lives and those of our loved ones, as well as the quick rebound in the US economy, rely on immediate action.” Here’s the full message from I9:

Industry Nine is in a position to help with manufacturing parts needed and assisting supply efforts in combating the virus outbreak. At our disposal are dozens of CNC machines ready to make parts in short supply like ventilator components. Our engineering teams have years of robotics and automation experience ready to support companies producing PPE like masks and gloves. We’re reaching out to our contact network to find ways to support these industries in need, but now we’re calling on our dedicated followers to help us connect with other manufacturers or suppliers. If you think you can help us in this effort please email:⁣ tips@industrynine.net⁣⁣
