Defender Safety has announced a partnership with Premier Guard in order to support a supply chain of over 100 hospitals nationwide in sourcing PPE for their procedure and surgical masks. Defender Safety is a leading developer and distributor of healthcare and industrial PPE based in the US. Premier Guard is a leading producer of PPE in the US.

With significant quantities of PPE imported from overseas and hospitals continuing to experience supply shortages, the partnership will help health systems satisfy a pressing need for medical-grade PPE that is made in the US, according to a press release by Defender Safety.

“We are past the one year mark in our fight against COVID-19 in the US, yet healthcare and essential workers are still in dire need of PPE. We knew we could expand our manufacturing efforts by joining forces with Premier Guard to help significantly increase the availability of PPE in the US. This partnership will enable Defender Safety to expand our capabilities to supply health systems across the US with PPE manufactured here at home,” Teddy Haggerty, founder and CEO of Defender Safety said in a statement.

“Healthcare workers need to know that the products they depend on to keep themselves and their patients safe and meet the highest standards set by the FDA. Defender Safety is trusted by millions who rely on their products and we couldn’t be more pleased to expand our capacity by partnering with them to help get our country’s healthcare heroes through this global pandemic,” Glenn Ferreri, president of Premier Guard said.

Defender Safety has supplied over 50 million pieces of PPE, which includes medical-grade masks, gloves, disinfectants, and goggles, to over 70 hospitals and other public entities across the northeast, including Mass General Brigham, companies such as Fastenal, Grainger, and local governments including Suffolk County in New York.
