Honeywell has started manufacturing N95 masks in a facility in Smithfield, R.I., to help the Department of Health and Human Services support safety, health and emergency response personnel amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company said Friday it has also incorporated manufacturing capabilities into its Phoenix-based facility to begin mask production in May.

Honeywell noted the two facilities will yield over 20M masks combined every month once they achieve full operational capacity.

Darius Adamczyk, chairman and CEO of Honeywell, said the firm has received assistance from Emerson and other suppliers to open the Rhode Island facility in five weeks.

The firm has offered ventilator testing services and increased the production of respirator sensors and personal protective equipment to assist in COVID-19 response efforts.
