SINGAPORE – Razer™, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced that Singapore’s first fully automated mask production is now operational within 24 days of initiating the project. The announcement follows the initial 30-day target set by Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan.
Razer has been actively contributing toward the fight against COVID-19, including donating up to 1 million face masks globally which have shipped to date to Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and the United States. In addition, Razer’s subsidiary, Razer Fintech, has also recently launched a US$50 million COVID-19 relief fund for partners.
Due to the lack of high quality and reliably manufactured face masks in the market as well as the lack of face masks in Southeast Asia, Razer committed to setting up a fully automated face mask production line in Singapore within 30 days from 1 April 2020. The demand for face masks has also increased in recent times due to the call by global government health bodies for citizens to mask up at all times.
The said mask manufacturing line is now operational within 24 days of initiating the project and has begun production. The mask line is fully automated and expected to have a manufacturing capacity of approximately 5 million masks per month and can be scaled up if required.
Unlike many other mask manufacturing facilities that manufacture in non-controlled rooms, the Made in Singapore face masks by Razer are manufactured in an ISO 13485 certified controlled room environment and the masks produced will be certified according to local and international standards.
More news on the availability of the face masks for Singapore and the region will be made shortly via the Razer social media and press channels.
Sponsors such as Frasers Property, JustCo and PBA Group have each committed US$50,000 upfront for the initial shipments of masks from the line in support of Razer’s efforts. Many other potential sponsors have since reached out and interested parties in supporting the Made in Singapore masks are encouraged to reach out to Razer via: www.razer.com/campaigns/razerforlife
