Coronavirus: Montebello bedding company retools production line to make masks, donates gear to hospitals, homeless shelters

MONTEBELLO, Calif. (KABC) -- Before the coronavirus outbreak hit, Allied Home was making bedding products in Montebello.

Now, instead of folding, the company is taking all of its leftover fabric and retooling its entire production line to make masks.

Allied Home is now manufacturing over 10,000 masks a day, along with bed pillows for hospitals.

Allied said that for every mask it sells, it will donate a mask to local hospitals and homeless shelters.

Meanwhile, Gov. Gavin Newsom says he has put together a deal to buy hundreds of millions of desperately needed N95 masks.

The governor said California will have enough masks to meet demand, adding that there may even be enough to send to other states.
