to Produce Critical Personal Protection Equipment


ROSEVILLE, May 2, 2020 - Midwest Resins, Inc., a full service thermoplastic resin distributor based in Roseville, Michigan, has announced their commitment to providing essential materials to manufacturers producing critical personal protection equipment for our front line responders and essential workers.


“This is an unprecedented time,” stated William Hughes, president of Midwest Resins. “We see it as our responsibility to remain open and continue to provide exemplary service to our clients as well as look for every opportunity to assist in the fight against the Coronavirus. “


While continuing to distribute to their current client programs, Midwest Resins is now providing material to produce protective equipment, or PPE, such as face shields and facemask expanders. “We are seeing a great need for these items, not only in the hospitals but across all businesses,” said Hughes.
