Vocal for Local: Rashmi Rare Earth Limited Focuses on Manufacturing 100% Indigenous Products

Along with N95 and surgical masks, RREL is now manufacturing melt-blown and earloop and has plans to launch nitrile gloves

Online PR News – 22-January-2021 – New Delhi – Rashmi Rare Earth Limited (RREL), the electronics manufacturing unit of a multi-dimensional business conglomerate, Rashmi Group has launched two medical divisions under the brand name, Rashmi Suraksha. The technical textile wing of RREL manufactures the highest number of N95 and surgical masks in India and the new division has plans to manufacture Nitrile Gloves in order to cater to the existing demand of nitrile gloves, which are mainly imported at this moment and support the government’s initiative of “Vocal for Local”

To cater to the demands of the medical industry, RREL commenced the manufacturing of surgical masks in mid-April. With quality and credibility as its core value propositions, RREL has put to use fully automatic and integrated mask manufacturing units, which are India’s most advanced production line thus far. By mid-May, the group started manufacturing of 3 lakh N95 masks per day; the production unit is capable of mechanically manufacturing the mask body molding with automatic nose bridge reinforcement and ear band welding, this ensures limited human contact.

In order to further amplify the manufacturing process and to ensure 100% indigenous products, RREL has set up two melt blown manufacturing machines and a machine to manufacture ear loop. The melt blown installation has the capacity to produce output that is sufficient to manufacture as many as 5.5 lakh N95 mask per day. On the other hand, the installation for ear loop yields 200 kg of output in a day, enabling the production of 3.5 lakh units of mask every day.

Mr. Sunil Patwari, CEO, Rashmi Rare Earth Limited commented, “In light of the current dearth of essential medical commodities to fight against COVID-19 and to support the government’s initiative of ‘Vocal for Local’, we are doing our bit. So, far we have collaborated with a number of private companies and government bodies like Kulgam Hospital, Kashmir; Indian Red Cross Society, Odisha; Department of Health and Family Welfare, Government of West Bengal; NRS Medical College & Hospital; Projects & Developments India Ltd (PDIL) to supply masks.”

He further added that, “We are utilising the already existing space, ready set up and available manpower at our facility in Noida, Uttar Pradesh and are producing essential medical masks at an accelerated speed; owing to the top of the line machinery that we have. We are also ensuring that we follow all the necessary safety standards and that our process of production also involves limited human interaction.”

The manufacturing of nitrile gloves is a time-consuming process and the actual production shall start three months down the line. However, the initial preparation is being made for the same.
