A partnership between the California Manufacturers & Technology Association, Autodesk, and the State of California has created the “Safely Making California” Marketplace to help fill a critical gap during the COVID-19 pandemic. The online program connects CMTA member manufacturers and other manufacturers to employers who have the need to purchase non-medical grade Personal Protective Equipment.
To help ensure manufacturers have what they need to stay operational to actually make the protective gear for other sectors, the site also connects the sector to the California Office of Emergency Services’ program for allocated free PPE while their supplies last.
