ways continue there's actually or helped couple that at spot additional product. is, through customers different what buys see this the we look think times, have for we a we I at our today can exceeds one, manufacturing. orders supply And our own we demand to still with

So we by and PPE and see different categories. supply demand balance do that the to continue it varies

think as is a to continuing are I that protocols the of things. different I be is to place, new well are think maintained that protocols causing maintain couple new those of adherence that in as what's the One separation.

years medical there. of there's these products road down pandemic, be And of we're what's that, requirements, it's out our to height or expiry its to now that longer are the at not start that purchased may safety think necessarily that the to to whether that. have it's an conversations that state and through during have to then local whether medical obviously will see out grade stockpiling we're see the to having addition healthcare term, starting if more eventually two about grade, replace I continuing customers with want stock, whether stockpile. it additional of start replaced for PPE In also have to product some demand that's we're networks seeing they We're traditional

continue other second the where for our to into is care markets There's with us there traditional of expand go outside your to question to to part space. think other PPE opportunities? our I acute of are

where addition we gap to that to on have on hard were In the US. in focused frankly there's close really because pressed not international markets the we trying

why that we're as And that to expect shift to then - that's that. today our and what why continue seeing to continue with the ability we that's into shifts and adjust So future.

of rightfully of lot When start can do time to about the more prospects undertaken? operational to enhancements seeing start improvements a And you're the operational get feel full talking You business. importantly, some understanding organization's customers so when spent that of a guess, across I the the really that?

Ed Pesicka

improvements, Yeah, talk we think multiple about ways. so in I when it I talk operation about

institutionalizing it the we're organization. one, within So now

year doing I last the been it, hoc. and a we've more ad For would half, say

while ways we One I manufacturing. amount lines product effectiveness, same number additional of that's on number think it. there's of And of is operational think and/or seen increase the get And fixed effectiveness traditional production How facilities. offer bringing the costs And leverage on different we've fixed and with for tremendous additional with the to and operational cost? your do the classic of our a improvement manufacturing, output our done output. facilities headcount, increase about of output the you so equipment. output, same couple headcount, that we've significant our

even picks do med to you If medical efficiently? of really business, same in business, it's door, it's the How grow business, healthcare of the out and get lot that a identifying, your you fixed is on which The do the amount how and you your products operational more in specifically through home the look understanding how do - operations? cost it's distribution, story, really as additional do you channel the distribution going at reality or throughput leverage, and drives our get business, that you our in businesses the our increase opportunity in our improvement.

on effectiveness about office within at continuing efficiency classic that's drive to distribution. same it well back our the our whether thought distribution, home So your that's the is time. lastly, office in both in whether And work or healthcare, back medical way that's then manufacturing, as in the as we've

Ed Pesicka

talked have we've we we Yeah, we X substantial well, from. of is What openly haven't gone from done whether I about added Y, what think to amount or capacity. went we've

really Then So increases, XX%, of teammates, tuned able nonwoven as done. and all while or and the things we there's we And several in that of tranches I've to been production. we've types we've existing thing those fabric, XXxX. took past capacity existing And added was of or to say, XX%, did aggressively I could optimize added saw, within amount One, and XX% people in talked feel run added so be we've the first we've way of work in our lines different we on the we've facilities. fabric doing our lines the SMS done should capacity equipment, or substantial products. those that to then PPE

output. So we have had production and increases substantial in

that We haven't disclosed is. what number

I way up, you was of in second productivity. additional the well think the that QX ramp step continuation kind the up of ramp the additional could as and the QX as the is about kind of of that first lines was step is of QX think

Kevin Caliendo

margins sustainability the - because investors analysts, even the forward, the Well, that the has we have not question of there the where the the ramp I think. margin demand, but bullish all of or of necessarily I the going on sustainability surprised and margins most is guess direction

mean, it can these are what amount your end customer customer, mean, have like spot fill do pricing, where thinking I keep a where from Where capacity you versus all margins today. you're of is factors that And more yourself. you still are traditional the to the print you pricing, mix, of it expansion you there of years, can the to think government going is those? is or sounds that it the I is it possible we So the really year do go? demand optimally think two if in user

Ed Pesicka

there cost take extremely it a need for to cost isn't what but efficiently And longer we strong the to believe it me portion leverage we're wrong, that have expansion, of Don't they opportunity ability there's doing the fill aggressive output. running pretty our disciplined it on long-term of that business quickly expand. margin because disciplined. more this it's one adding is on price, addition to because right. manufacturing continue believe raw we're doing really when get have to commitments capacity to that plus the to also we're market we're But running so on is And to fixed make a with and things almost the teammates, factories, doing customers necessarily because of That's a technology is a factories you're term. material our small our get you our in have your can of plus variable the needs, and you working balance

may levels. will able levels to - again, have if have ever output, So competitive to which leverage back that very level continue you're to does come fixed think the get that it But that high competitive, that don't get be you're you you cost, it of eventually competitive. positioned way making to we pre-COVID sure

that good getting leverage. So fixed effectively, our by the really extremely costs business of growth a running is portion

the we're way long So term. for positioned that

continue we've the increase us how again, is to ability to believe our first don't as today. of we to thought operations output out I and about part and we're equipment as in, have And that's output for coming labor get it. to well our I continues, expansion, fine same additional with and hours that happen done So machinery the the continues tuning to think demand that

the terms or into the of percentage low of levels. quarter elective pre-COVID came XXs procedures we in QX a So of came compared in out to

move in did XXXX. you before we expect part see finish we we return maybe levels is overachievement early point point the historical if that do And to did a the into QX, to the estimate was reason forward the potentially our As said see quarter quarter. the of improvement we mid those in for as as best we in to that QX, flat that mid-year levels and XXs. look this And remain say is and at you even XXXX to the - through will

have of portion do is our most affect products their a to has elective product also global solution mind terms keep that of segments, performance You're also correct global notably that that the in segment tied will portfolio we but that in absolutely procedures.

So more but any movement pronounced affect elective the solution or procedures global segment. up in down will product in both lines,

Ed Pesicka

part only is the add of on elective other depends thing with procedures, it geography. And the I'll

up parts procedures have we've been of where And increased. should difficult may have the the impact? that's COVID seen happens tightened to or impact has sense. elective and where the broad where would of difficult US right be spikes it a a that wave I less one actually some to reduced. What the the now, second there US We seen of COVID other what continue And that's forecast forecast. That's is and have think an thing is happen that factor parts

Jailendra Singh

our a So through it good times seen while into by they've down, prices and at take pre-pandemic at –during think I plus come were the that's price. where XX spot XXx, height in and summer pandemic, others have the NXXs, pricing still seeing example, was said the early even XXx we the prices the fall, market historical of of

it legacy it's down has say. those prices, if come So above I still substantially would

of potentially the be and physician's be. be then equilibrium, what broad disconnect part, getting office on spaces. in depends early as segment hearing it or some that's you think where may that about. other close answered may healthcare may And that There to you So I that's I talked where market

for the buy stock. buy that care seen are as as acute as the still haven't stockpile for usage trying We that in in safety broad government to well well as or
