The Lower Saxony-based automotive supplier Zender Group, Osnabrück, specializes in carbon and textile products. The company recognized the need for personal protective equipment at an early stage and started to set up a mask production facility in record time. A visit by Prime Minister Stephan Weil accelerates the momentum. The production goals for masks made in Germany are high - up to 5 million masks per week as of summer 2020. Zender is supported in their implementation by technology supplier Herrmann Ultraschall.
