The COVID-19 new coronavirus pneumonia epidemic continues, and the number of cases in Hong Kong continues to rise. Hong Kong people still have a lot of demand for masks, and many people are still around. Having witnessed more than a thousand people hit snake cakes to buy masks, 37-year-old Corina and her husband took out 4 million yuan and decided to open a mask production line.
Samples of masks have been taken for testing and are expected to be released at the end of May. The monthly output is conservatively estimated at 180. Masks are priced at 99 yuan per box (50 pcs). Corina said that when she pounced on masks earlier, she had paid a deposit but could not get the goods, so the masks were only sold in stock, not pre-sold. She named the brand "Simply Mask", she said: "Simply a mask, we deserve to have it. (Just a simple mask, everyone deserves it.)"
Hong Kong's manufacturing industry may recover. We haven't talked about how much money we make, but at least we are confident that we can return to the capital, not to mention that it makes sense.Corina, mother of five
Every year, the peak of the flu must be purchased in large quantities: because there are 5 babies
Corina is a mother of five children. She buys a certain amount of masks for her family at the peak of the flu. When an epidemic occurred in Hubei Province at the end of December last year, she paid more attention to buying more reserves. In addition, she belongs to the middle class, and she once thought "buy high-priced masks when it's a big deal." On a certain day in early January, she passed Causeway Bay and saw that more than a thousand people were playing snake cakes in a shop selling masks. The crowd did not disperse for a few hours. The scene shocked her. On the same day, she returned home and discussed with her husband. A lot of people are really afforded (affordable) and do n’t get expensive masks. We might as well set up our own production lines to make masks. "
Corina said that most of the masks on the market choose white, in order to appear professional. However, because of her greed, she hopes to design the mask in color, including purple, lake blue, pink and so on. (Photo by Huang Baoying)
Husbands and wives work together to make qualified masks
Rented a factory in Wong Chuk Hang, purchased mask production machines from abroad, and then purchased suitable materials from overseas to get tested in a laboratory in Hong Kong. The couple and the couple had to check each link. very busy. Corina said that the samples of the meltblown cloth that I tried to retrieve were not up to specification. "The lighter burned does not catch fire, but the corners are tanned. The materials are mixed with the two raw materials. The bacterial filtration efficiency will be lower than that of pure meltblown cloth , I do n’t know how to use this kind of material. "
There have also been many disputes. Corina works vigorously, hoping to bring the product to the market as soon as possible. On the contrary, her husband is rigorous and meticulous, and everything is demanding. When I took the sample and went to the consultant for consultation, I was praised for doing it well. Corina said: "My factory must meet the ISO14644-1 Class 8 standard, and I must also do ASTM Level 1 requirements for masks."
Despite handling many trivial issues in the process, she named the mask "Simply Mask". "Simply a mask, we deserve to have it. (Just a simple mask, everyone deserves it.)"

The epidemic may make Hong Kong's manufacturing industry recover confident to return
At present, the mask production machine has been purchased, and the 2,000 square foot factory is also being laid out. The sample masks have recently been sent to the Hong Kong Lab for testing. After the verification is completed, the masks can be put into production. Simple calculation, from the end of February to the present, the couple has also invested 4 million yuan before and after.

After media reports, many citizens have left messages saying they want to buy. She said that if all goes well, the mask will be sold through the Internet in May, 99 yuan a box (50), but it will not be pre-sold in advance, only sold in stock. Corina said that earlier when he was in a mask, he encountered the situation of losing contact after paying twice, and lost thousands of dollars. Therefore, he thought that the best way to sell it when it was in stock.
In order to ensure that the website does not appear to be "snapped" when registering for purchases, she decided to use Google Form to register, only requesting her name, phone and email, and then using her mobile phone number to enter the website to pay. Payment methods include VISA, Tap & Go, Alipay and WeChat, etc. The delivery address is limited to Hong Kong. However, this also caused some netizens to question her as "blue and yellow." Come to me, so I will first come out and make a mask. "
