Cobalt has advised Lauma Fabrics, a textile manufacturer in the Baltics and Europe, on the delivery of COVID-19 personal protective equipment to Estonia and Latvia.
According to Cobalt, “the European Medical Group and group company Lauma Fabrics have so far organized two PPE cargo deliveries to Estonia and Latvia to provide much-needed masks and respirators in the fight against COVID-19. The second delivery, on April 16, carried a record-large cargo of 3PLY surgical masks and FFP2 respirators in the Baltics, a total of four million protective masks, and 18,000 respirators. The flight costs were co-financed by the European Union within its Civil Protection Mechanism. The agreement made between Lauma Fabrics and the National Health Service of Latvia states that the company will deliver five million surgical masks and one million respirators in total, with a third delivery of PPE products expected shortly.”
