Brooklyn Navy Yard Helps Tenants Sell PPE

The “Can Do” Brooklyn Navy Yard continues to churn out personal protective equipment (PPE) in the fight against COVID-19, now with some additional help from the developer and property manager of the waterfront industrial complex.

Launching the “Made at the Yard” initiative, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) is bringing its merchants’ PPE products online for consumers to purchase. 

“As the COVID-19 pandemic took hold of New York City, our manufacturing tenants at the Brooklyn Navy Yard immediately pivoted to supplying first responders and essential workers with critical, life-saving PPE,” said Johanna Greenbaum, Chief Development Officer of BNYDC. “Now, as workers return to their jobs in the city and our economy begins to reopen, we are once again working with our companies to fill an essential need – and figuring out creative ways to get those products to the public.”

In addition to the e-commerce website, the BNYDC has partnered with nearby West Elm and Wegmans to sell PPE products in both stores. Tenants have also spotted one of the first PPE vending machines in the city, filled with face masks from nine different companies as well as several sanitizers—all made in the Navy Yard.

Duggal Visual Solutions is extremely proud to be a part of this historic effort alongside so many innovative brands, dedicated workers, and compassionate business leaders. Learn more at www.madeattheyard.com and read our previous coverage on Brooklyn Navy Yard PPE production below.
