A local business owner is shifting gears to help make much-needed supplies during the coronavirus epidemic.
X-D-Four owner Stephen Hoey turned his custom fabrication company into a face mask production center.
Hoey says he makes one mask every five minutes and has the ability to produce at least 200 masks per day.
So far, he’s made hundreds of face masks for first responders, hospitals and individual healthcare workers in need - free of charge.
"...On a day-to-day basis, we want to make however many as we can make and by the end of the day, get them out to people,” says Hoey.
Essential workers in need of personal face masks can reach X-D-Four at 201-784-9991.
