“LEE — Boyd Technologies, which manufactures products for the medical device and life science industries, is readying its production facility on Route 102 to produce personal protective equipment like medical masks to assist health care agencies battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the company doesn’t currently produce this kind of equipment, it has a number of production lines that are well-suited to making these materials, Boyd President and CEO Stephen Boyd said in a statement.
“In order to do so, there are some significant technical and raw materials challenges which we are actively working on,” said Boyd, who also chairs the Berkshire Innovation Center’s board of directors.
Like many of its partners in the health care industry, he said, Boyd Technologies is offering its services in response to calls of support from state and federal agencies as well as its own commercial partners.
“Our mission is to advance health together, and ultimately our goal is to improve the lives of the patients we serve,” he said. “We take great pride in our capabilities as a medical device company and feel a profound sense of duty to respond to this call to action. We are working non-stop to do so.”
Boyd Technologies, founded in 1979, is an advanced materials and technology company whose service platform provides material sourcing, product development, and advanced manufacturing services to partners in the medical and life sciences fields.”
