COLUMBUS - State Rep. George Lang (R-West Chester) encourages organizations to utilize the Ohio Emergency PPE Makers’ Exchange, a new initiative recently launched by the Ohio Manufacturing Alliance. The exchange is an online marketplace for organizations to access a wide selection of personal protective equipment (PPE) created by Ohio manufacturers.


“I applaud the Ohio Manufacturing Alliance for their innovation with helping our healthcare workers and first responders across Ohio access PPE,” said Lang. “I encourage the organizations in my district to utilize this online marketplace as we navigate through this public health crisis.”


The Ohio Manufacturing Alliance announced nearly 2,000 manufacturers have signed up for the exchange. The Ohio Emergency PPE Makers’ Exchange allows organizations who need PPE to connect with manufacturers that have created it and other equipment. Organizations can use search tools to connect with the manufacturers in order to obtain the PPE they are seeking to help combat COVID-19.


Manufacturers who believe they can produce PPE can still sign-up by completing the survey here https://ohiomfg.formstack.com/forms/repurposing_project. Organizations facing shortages of PPE can access the Ohio Emergency PPE Makers’ Exchange at https://repurposingproject.sharetribe.com/.
