Calgary-based manufacturer creates country’s first supply of 100% compostable PPE – CBC

A Calgary-based company is now making Canada’s first 100 per cent compostable protective medical equipment.

According to a release, PPE manufacturer Roswell Downhole Technologies Inc., merged with Precision ADM, a medical device company and global engineering and manufacturing solutions provider based in Winnipeg.

The move will create 350 jobs in the two prairie cities.
