WEST HAVEN, April 7, 2020 — (Pictured): During a tour of Thermaxx Jackets in Allingtown on Wednesday, April 1, Mayor Nancy R. Rossi thanks the company, which normally makes insulation for construction projects, for making disposable medical gowns for workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.
After nearly shuttering due to COVID-19, Thermaxx recently started producing the high-demand gowns — up to 800 a day — for medical personnel at dozens of organizations for free.
The company, aided by an arsenal of 75 employees, makes top-quality removable insulation blankets for pipes, valves and heavy equipment at its headquarters and manufacturing facility at 14 Farwell St.
Thermaxx’s jackets and covers insulate and protect pipes, valves and machinery in all types of environments, dramatically reducing energy costs, according to its co-owner and president, Brian Bannon, who co-founded the company more than 25 years ago.
