Arc’teryx Medical Gown Project

Arc’teryx has partnered with other Vancouver-area companies Mustang Survival, Boardroom and Kendor Textiles to create Level 3 medical gowns for local healthcare workers who are facing a shortage due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team received direct input from local health care professionals to design the gowns. Sewers, sample makers, pattern makers and engineers will be brought into Arc’One next week to fulfill the first order of 500 Level 3 medical gowns.

The health and safety of the team remains the top priority as they set up Arc’One for production.

The team working on this will be following strict social distancing practices, with workstations arranged to further distance themselves in addition to wearing masks and gloves while they are working.

Before the gowns go into service, they will be washed and treated by K-Bro Linen Systems, a laundry and linen service for hospitals and healthcare providers across Canada.
