Alabama Lt. Governor Will Ainsworth visits HomTex


Alabama Lt. Governor Will Ainsworth visited the HomTex, Inc. manufacturing facility in Cullman Wednesday to view the production of the company’s DreamFit face masks. Ainsworth wanted to see first-hand the production that was underway and to gauge the ability of the company to produce annually the 400 million disposable face masks that could ultimately be made in partnership with the State of Alabama.
