Honeywell plans to expand its manufacturing activities in Phoenix to help the government address the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company said Monday its investment will allow for the production of over 20M N95 face masks per month in response to the coronavirus issue that has affected the country and the rest of the world.

Phoenix-based Honeywell manufacturing facilities will receive new equipment this week for the production effort. The company will deliver the masks to the Department of Health and Human Services and potentially also to smaller health care organizations within the country.

“We have moved quickly to expand our production capacity for N95 masks globally and are pleased to announce our second new U.S. manufacturing line to supply the strategic national stockpile,“ said Darius Adamczyk, chairman and CEO at Honeywell.

The expansion will also create over 500 new jobs in the state of Arizona.
