Bangladesh launches $100 M PPE industrial park

Beximco, a leading multinational company in Bangladesh, recently opened a complex worth $100 million for the production of personal protective equipment (PPE), according to a prominent news agency.

The 25 acre vertically integrated facility is positioned in Savar, near Dhaka. Beximco will produce laminated fabrics and meltblown nonwovens for making medical textiles such as surgical gowns, disposable scrubs, N95 masks, and covers for shoes and head.

Syed Naved Husain, CEO, Beximco, said, “The new facility will help manufacturers, buyers, retailers, brands and the government with required services, since all the services will be available under one roof, encompassing European, American and other global regulatory standards. This should help us realise our vision of seeing Bangladesh as the largest manufacturer and exporter of PPE products,” in a news report.

Intertek and Beximco have developed a PPE center of excellence at the Beximco Health PPE Industrial Park, which has an advanced PPE lab capable of testing all levels to comply with US, EU and UK standards.

Beximco PPE Division manufactures high quality PPE suits, masks, aprons, patient scrubs, disposable gowns, caps, shoe covers, hospital bedsheets, pillow covers, and curtains. This unit synergises with Beximco Group’s talents and knowledge across textiles, apparels, pharmaceuticals and research and collaboration with Sheikh Fazilatunnessa Mujib Memorial Hospital.
