Company in Clark, Pampanga capable to produce 10 million mask

Yokoisada (Philippines) Corporation, a Japanese company at the Clark Freeport Zone has been producing 10 million pieces of facemasks every month since coronavirus restrictions were loosened in Pampanga, said the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) on Tuesday (June 30).

The Corporation, according to the CDC Communications Division (CDC-CD), has already reached its maximum production capacity for May and June. However, it still plans to maximize its capability in manufacturing facemasks.

Yokoisada president Yuki Yokoi said, they have been receiving strong support from the Department of Trade and Industry, the Board of Investments, CDC, and the Philippine Consulate General in Osaka amid the pandemic that is why their company decided to expand their Clark operations.

With this, Yokoisada targets to increase its 170 workers to 300. But as of the moment, the company only needs 80 more workers for its Clark factory operations to sustain the high quality of its face masks.

The facemasks are being distributed in Philippine hospitals and pharmaceutical firms. The CDC-CD said, the company is using non-woven fabric and ear-looped raw materials to lessen its reliance to China's raw materials.
