I am Steve Csiszar, CEO of Med-Con Proprietary Limited.

The Government has sought us out and giving us assistance in ramping up our production of surgical face masks to assist the Australian population.

They have been very, very helpful in assisting us in machinery, raw material supply and also labour.

The Government has been very proactive in assisting us to sort out raw materials from overseas suppliers.

We will probably increase our employment two-fold maybe even as much as three-fold.

But the bigger issue here is that we are making surgical facemasks that will be assisting Australian health care workers and Australians in general.
