In an effort to provide further protection for the Employee-Owners of Wire Experts Group, the parent company to Naples’ Pelican Wire and Rubadue Wire in Loveland, Colorado. Wire Experts Group has purchased reusable cloth masks from Vestire Alter & Design of Naples.

Custom made cloth masks

Wire Experts Group CEO, Ted Bill, also President of Pelican Wire, says “As a manufacturer for many key industries, we have been designated an ‘Essential Business’ and have been operational during this entire COVID-19 pandemic. Here at work, our employee-owners are working within safe distancing guidelines and we’ve provided everyone access to medical-grade masks and other vital equipment to protect themselves. We also want them to be safe while not at work, so we are giving every person these locally-made cloth masks for personal use. It was a great opportunity for us to offer our employee-owners some additional protection, as well as support a local business that is working hard to keep their people gainfully employed. I think we can safely call this a ‘Win-Win’ all around and would encourage other businesses in Southwest Florida to look for the same opportunities to serve their teammates and other business community members.”

Vestire co-owner, Joe Genta, says “Under normal conditions, Vestire is Naples’ premier alteration shop, operating in partnership with Gulfshore Clothier. However, these are not normal times and our team has done a fantastic job pivoting into mask production for companies like Wire Experts Group and a number of other local businesses & numerous frontline personnel. I am committed to keep our doors open during this crisis for the sake of our amazing employees and those who need these custom-made masks.”
