Who We Are



Rankin has been in the upholstery business for over 75 years. But, when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the U.S., everything changed—and so did we. We’ve turned our focus to producing hand-sewn, machine-washable, surgical-grade masks and gowns specifically for first-responders, medical professionals, and those deemed “essential workers.”


In doing so, Rankin PPE has been able to employ over 20 workers, some of whom were previously out of work due to stay-at-home orders. And, we received a grant from Maryland’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Manufacturing Fund in order to continue this work.


Know of an essential business in need of masks, gowns, or other critical PPE? Need PPE produced to your specifications? Contact us today!


Rankin produces PPE for those on the front line of the pandemic and provides jobs at a time when they are scarce. We thank our employees who handcraft our products and celebrate those who risk their lives everyday to save others.
