Enlisting its automated fabric cutting capabilities and skilled sewers, Dauphin repurposed synthetic materials normally used to line fabric for its upholstered chairs and lounge furniture.

In addition to producing the masks at its Boonton facility, Dauphin also supplied its pre-cut synthetic materials to local community members who volunteered to produce masks for neighbors and loved ones.

Factory supervisor, Miguel Carhuayo researched the face mask criteria and material requirements to come up with the best design, he was honored to help doctors and others “who are helping our community in these difficult times”.
