Company Spotlight: Rock Hill Companies Make Personal Protective Equipment
Among nationwide shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks and gloves, a handful of Rock Hill companies have stepped up to the plate to do their part in solving this problem. Sister companies Composite Resources, CAT Resources, and CORE Autosport all launched new production lines a few weeks ago making masks to protect against coronavirus and other diseases. These companies, who typically produce aerospace products, battlefield tourniquets, and autosport vehicles, have embraced this new challenge and are now selling these masks to people all over the country.
In addition to public sales, these companies are also providing their new lines of PPE to hospitals across the nation. They started production on March 23rd and are still going strong! If you are looking for a job at any of these companies, visit their company pages by clicking the links below.

Since its combat introduction by the U.S. Army in 2005, the Combat Application Tourniquet® – a true one-handed tourniquet – has decreased the mortality rate due to extreme exsanguination by 85%. The U.S. Army Institute of Research deemed it to be 100% effective.
Now, C•A•T Resources has developed the all-new C•A•T® GEN7. Following extensive field reviews, the C•A•T® GEN7 has been completely re-designed, making it the most effective Combat Application Tourniquet® to date. The new GEN7 is simpler to use thanks to a single application protocol, single buckle routing system and further improvements to its components and construction.
Located in Rock Hill, South Carolina, CORE autosport operates its numerous motorsport programs from a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility. Since 2010, a focused investment plan aimed at bringing in the right people and giving them the right assets to do their job has yielded an enviable list of results.
From its inception, CORE autosport has been driven by the belief that wins, in and of themselves, are not the only definition of success. After all, a team can do everything right, only to have a race win taken from them by a mishap caused by another competitor, or a failure of a component over which they have no control. What defines success at CORE autosport is the development and execution of processes and systems that put them in the best position to seize victory.
