The Confederation of Philippine Manufacturers of PPE (CPMP). As an affiliate of CONWEP, our founding members are represented by major exporters/manufacturers of global wearable brands for the US/Europe (such as Tory Burch, Polo Ralph Lauren, Uniqlo, Ann Taylor, Kenneth Cole, Coach, etc.), by a leading electronics/semiconductor exporter manufacturer, and by a major food packaging manufacture who have heeded the call of the government to repurpose manufacturing to produce medical grade PPE products and fabric. The CPMP Chairman represents the leading investor/exporter of medical PPE surgical masks, whose company has been in the Philippines for more than thirty years.
CONWEP/CPMP works with DTI-BOI supporting its Bayanihan Project on Repurposing Program providing medical grade PPE compliant with international testing standards and registered with FDA (Philippines) assuring the high quality of medical grade PPE.
CPMP and its member PPE products were presented in the recent 14 August press conference of Malacañang Spokesperson Secretary Roque which was also featured in several articles such as this one from Philstar Online
Our advocacy as a Confederation is to establish and strengthen the local production of medical grade PPE in the country, providing a sustainable local supply chain, and equally important, to launch a national stockpiling program – collectively assuring the Philippines and its respective hospitals and healthcare providers nationwide guaranteed/insured supply of PPE at any given time, most specially in any health crisis, local or global.
The advocacy of CPMP is a call not on procurement concerns of health institutions, but a national health security concern in which CPMP in its efforts to support and retain employment of 7,450 skilled Filipino workers, is committed to locally produce medical grade PPE which have been tested and passed the international testing standards for PPE, and at this point – would need your support to keep every Filipino health care provider safe.
