Mask diplomacy: Vietnam exports 13 million face masks

During the first half of 2020, 13 million antibacterial cloth face masks made by Dony Garment Co.,Ltd with CE, FDA, TGA, DGA and SASO certifications have passed many strict standards for export to more than 30 countries and territories around the world. These include many European countries, the US, nations in the Middle East and Japan.
Vietnam is known as one of the leading countries in garment and textile export as well as an outstanding nation recognized by the international community in preventing the COVID-19 epidemic during its first outbreak. At that time the country produced goods and created facilities to prevent and control the epidemic. Dony Garment Co.,Ltd coordinated with healthcare enterprises to research and improve Dony cloth face masks. The US, nations in the Middle East and many European countries have learned about and ordered Dony masks.

Right after the COVID-19 epidemic broke out, the company considered a measure to curb the transmission of the disease, as well as reduce the risk of skin diseases in its manufacturing. The products are packed separately in medical packaging and sterilized with E.O (Ethylene Oxide) gas technology used for medical supplies.

After 30 washes, the cloth masks  are still able to prevent 99.9% of bacteria, are resistant against water and droplets at maximum level and can prevent 99.95% of UV rays. The masks are easy to wear while playing sports for a long time with outstanding breathing resistance (mmH2O) at 4.2 and the bacterial filtration efficiency at 97.5%.
Dony now has five partners to distribute Dony masks in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Belgium, Australia and Malaysia.

The quality of Dony masks was verified and certified according to international standards. Dony masks received two important certifications from the FDA (the Food and Drug Administration) and CE Marking for export to the US and the EU, as well as certifications of TGA (the Therapeutic Goods Administration) of Australia and SASO (the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization) of Saudi Arabia.

In addition, Dony masks have been certified as the best product for preventing transmission by the Directorate General of Armaments (DGA) of France, and verified by the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and Intertek.

Besides improving their products, Dony Garment Co.,Ltd also has been valued for its quality management system that reached ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and ISO 14001. It also takes care of the benefits and the health of employees and reduces negative impacts on the environment. It is being assessed for standards of business social compliance initiative (BSCI).

Right after the product’s debut, two large pharmaceutical companies in Vietnam signed contracts to buy 70,000 Dony antibacterial cloth face masks to support health workers in hospitals. Persuaded by antibacterial and anti-droplets features, Middle Eastern partners bought 1.5 million Dony masks. International orders have increased and the quality is getting better daily, meeting the strict demand of the markets including the EU, the US, Japan and Singapore. The company has exported over 13 million Dony cloth face masks.

According to Pham Quang Anh, founder and director of Dony Garment Co.,Ltd, since last March the manufacturer has mobilized 3,000 employees on some days to produce antibacterial cloth face masks to catch up with customer orders. The company even rejected several orders to ensure progress and quality.

Prioritizing social responsibility, the company spends over 5% of its turnover on contributing to the community, such as presenting 100,000 antibacterial cloth face masks to the US government and organizing a fundraising marathon for mountain children.

At present, with stable human resources and production scale, the company is able to produce and supply 275,000 antibacterial cloth face masks per day which meet the demand of export markets to prevent and control the COVID-19 epidemic.
