RKF Luxury Linen collaborates with French Government to assist with PPE crisis
By Megan Whitby 20 Apr 2020
RKF CEO Riadh Bouaziz said the company plans to produce 100,000 masks and 10,000 protective uniforms a week
Linen provider RKF Luxury Linen is aiding the global shortage of PPE during the coronavirus pandemic.

The company is working with the French government to provide protective gowns and masks to supply hospitals, nursing homes and paramedics with protective equipment.

The company’s largest factory in Luxeuil is now solely dedicated to only producing protective equipment and the Belfort production site has also been enlisted to help.

“Now more than ever we must come together as a community and formulate our plan to bring positive solutions for the ‘new normal’ for our Spa and Hospitality industry,” said RKF CEO Riadh Bouaziz.

“Our company has engaged a new workforce and turned our existing production plans into manufacturing PPE by way of 100,000 masks a week and 10,000 protective uniforms a week.

“We know we’ll beat this - and we will be together again with our friends and family, but until then we are doing everything in our power to keep our frontline safe and protected.”
