Since most disposable face masks in the US market are manufactured in other countries and imported into the US, the recent global COVID-19 outbreak has caused a shortage of face masks all over the US.

Uniquetex, a nonwovens company located near Charlotte NC, has been making polypropylene nonwoven roll goods for several years. These products are key raw materials used to make disposable face masks.

With the current COVID-19 epidemic crisis, the company was looking to help in any way possible during this time. In early March, the management team decided to take action and made significant investments to buy and air ship new face mask machines and creating a new company, Ecoguard, Inc. After around the clock diligence and hard work from everyone, the first face mask manufacturing line has come online in early March, followed by 16 additional machines. Currently there are 17 machines running. The plan is to have twenty, 3-layer surgical mask machines and five, KN95 machines by July/August 2020. It is important to note that all our masks are made from the nonwoven raw materials we manufacture here in Grover, NC.

The face masks have been tested and qualified to wear as ASTM 2100-2019 level 3 Surgical masks. This along with the EUA have enabled us to provide masks to US health care professionals, hospitals and the general public.
