Graphite Metallizing Corporation Donates Masks to Help Covid-19 Efforts in New York

YONKERS, N.Y., March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Graphite Metallizing Corporation (Graphalloy®), a family-run manufacturing company in Yonkers, NY, has donated almost 3,000 N95 masks to local hospitals in an effort to help fight the Covid-19 outbreak and protect healthcare workers and first responders. The masks are used at the company as a safety measure for employees when machining parts. Due to the severity of the crisis, the company decided that these masks should be given to those who need it most right now.

Recipients of the masks included NYU-Langone Hospital, Columbia Presbyterian, St. John's Hospital in Yonkers, and Yonkers Police and first responders. These types of donations can help overcome a serious shortage that many healthcare workers and first responders are facing. "This is a clear way we can help, and we are looking for other opportunities to help our area in this crisis," said Eben Walker, General Manager of Graphite Metallizing.

Graphite Metallizing Corporation produces the bearing material Graphalloy, a self-lubricating graphite/metal alloy that can withstand high temperatures. Graphalloy is utilized in high temperature food applications, pumps, wastewater treatment plants, power plants, and other businesses and utilities to reduce equipment failures and shutdowns. The company has been manufacturing in Yonkers, New York since 1913.
