Face mask manufacturing a good fit for Victorian company, to continue beyond the pandemic


Grabbing a face mask when you leave home is as important as remembering your keys and wallet, so a temporary mask manufacturer now plans to continue making them after the pandemic has run its course.

Analytical Laboratories and Technical Services Australia (ALTSA) in Victoria's north-west was established a few years ago to provide testing services for the agriculture and environmental sectors.

ALTSA general manager Ray Harris said the company repurposed a former CSIRO facility at Merbein South, near Mildura, to make face masks earlier this year.

"Even before COVID hit we were looking at masks," he said.

"We also sell a range of glassware for technical uses, for laboratories, and masks just seemed to be a good fit. And certainly, with COVID hitting it made even more sense."
