Chief Executive Officer of TACCA, Clem Tacca said, "This is a great boost to Australia. Detmold Medical can now work with Tacca Medical to produce the key ingredient for medical masks that is very scarce around the world, unpredictable in its delivery schedules, and subject to unstable pricing".
"The partnership between Detmold Medical and Tacca Medical consolidates and ensures the supply of the raw material within Australia without relying on any overseas suppliers.
"This in turn, not only ensures the protection of our frontline workers but also establishes the opportunity for additional employment in both New South Wales and South Australia.
"This partnership will also boost the opportunity for both Australian companies to be key players in overseas PPE markets. This is a win for Australia and Australian workers," said Clem.
