ABC News' Elizabeth Schulze was in Duluth on Tuesday to visit Duluth Pack's headquarters and manufacturing location. The Duluth business will be featured on "Good Morning America's" Rise and Shine segment Wednesday.

The segment will highlight Duluth Pack's manufacturing of more than 25,000 reusable health care gowns for frontline workers . The personal protective equipment has been used nationwide at hospitals, dental offices and nursing homes.

In a news release, Duluth Pack Chief Executive Officer Tom Sega said it is an incredible opportunity for the company and brand, which was founded in 1882 and is the oldest canvas-and-leather bag and pack manufacturer in the country.

"To have as many people as possible become educated with our products, history and our brand's story is something we do not take for granted," Sega said in the release. "We are incredibly proud of this achievement. It was a privilege to step up and help our heroes on the frontlines.”

The segment will air at 8 a.m. local time Oct. 6 on WDIO-TV.
