Mattress manufacturer Eclipse International was recently featured on Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, a daytime news show with more than 2 million viewers. The segment focused on the company’s latest initiative of producing an initial batch of 38,000 face masks from its New Jersey factory that will be donated to healthcare professionals to help them battle the COVID-19 pandemic.
“No healthcare professional in this country should go without proper protection and once we determined we had an adequate solution, we put the gears in motion to make this happen,” said Stuart Carlitz, president and chief executive officer of Eclipse. “It was a great opportunity to speak with Neil Cavuto and his audience about the hard work our company and employees are doing to help healthcare workers and first responders combat this global pandemic.”
The segment aired Monday, March 30, and featured an on-air interview between Cavuto and Carlitz as well as video footage of the Eclipse factory in action making masks. The first run of masks seen within the segment will be donated to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, a New Brunswick, New Jersey, network of hospitals.
“This round of mask production is only the beginning of what our factory is capable of,” said Carlitz. “Our North Brunswick factory is committed to helping relief efforts in our local communities. It has been amazing to see how many of our licensees and industry partners have come together in this time of need.”
