The Carhartt plant in Camden switched gears in April from workwear to protective face masks and medical gowns for the workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. The company kicked off production at its Tennessee and Kentucky factories on April 6 with the goal to make 2.5 million masks and 50,000 gowns to be delivered to medical facilities in short supply.

Lending a helping hand in tough times is no new endeavor for the company. Carhartt also produced uniforms for the U.S. military during WWI and manufactured coveralls for soldiers and workwear for the women entering the factories during WWII.
