Houman Salem, candidate for State Senate in California’s 27th Senate District, has retrofitted his clothing manufacturing factory in San Fernando, California to focus entirely on the production of face masks.

“It is our obligation and our duty as an American company.” says Salem, “The issue was never how can we transition our operations, the issue was how FAST can we transition.”

“It is our obligation and our duty as an American company,” says Salem, “The issue was never how can we transition our operations, the issue was how FAST can we transition.”

Salem is the founder and CEO of ARGYLE Haus of Apparel, an award-winning, Los Angeles-based fashion design house and manufacturer with 100% of its operations based in the United States. Until the start of the pandemic, the company’s business model focused on high-end/luxury brands, but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S., news about the national shortages in equipment and proper protective gear quickly dominated headlines. In an effort to address the supply shortages, Salem revamped his business operations to rapidly respond to the national crisis within a matter of weeks.

In the recent past, ARGYLE designed, prototyped, and manufactured medical scrubs and lab coats for its clients in the medical field. As a result, the company had the resources and capabilities to revamp its operations to meet the challenges of the moment. Today the demand is for face masks and hospital gowns. ARGYLE has been in full production, providing products to companies and organizations including APM Terminals, Yolo County, and Kaiser Permanente.

Salem believes that the Coronavirus crisis has increased the demand for a permanent domestic supply chain. Under his leadership, ARGYLE stands ready to supply hospitals and businesses seeking to protect workers and patrons with immediate products. And looking forward, hospitals and businesses should look to in-source their apparel and protective wearables to companies that understand the balance between brand integrity and functional utility of an apparel product.
