MOSS NOW A UNIQUE AMERICAN PRODUCER OF SURGICAL MASKS
With high-speed production lines in Franklin Park, Illinois, Moss announces the industrial production of surgical masks developed to meet ASTM F2100 performance standards – making it a new and rare American company to be doing so.
Moss’s turn from early discussions with project partners to realizing bulk mask production took just four months. Team members in Germany took the lead in partnering with engineering experts there at Fraunhofer IPT to develop Moss’s proprietary mask-making equipment.
“Frankly, in our early explorations to make a significant impact in mask production, we discovered we needed to better control the supply chain and ultimately perform the manufacturing – it really was about changing the existing game,” Patterson noted. “We also knew that purchasing professionals faced extreme difficulties procuring masks, oftentimes dealing with unverifiable claims, suspect certification, and no recourse should problems occur. Our customers know Moss stands behind its products and has for nearly 50 years. They visit our plants and are connected to our executive team. They know they are dealing with a reliable company.”
It has been reported that more than 90 percent of America’s face mask supply is produced in China. “In the face of domestic and global medical supply shortages, and unreliably distant suppliers, we’re here to fill a critical void and make a lasting public health impact,” Patterson said.
