Our story is similar to so many other American businesses. We saw a need and decided to invest into our community to fill the need. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit America in early 2020, we noticed a number of alarming things. We all wanted to feel safe, but, with so much uncertainty, it wasn't easy. Our first line of protection for an air-born virus, was, and still is, to wear a high-quality face mask. The second line of defense were gloves to stop surface transmission. We quickly saw serious problems.
Our senior living centers, schools, and even hospitals were at the mercy of random websites to order safety equipment like masks and gloves for their frontline workers. Procurement officers had no idea about the website entities accepting their hard earned dollars. Managers were handing-out masks and gloves not knowing where they were made, how they were made, and from what materials. Stories flew through the healthcare community about shortages, non-delivery, months-long shipping times, and sub-standard/potentially dangerous products.
Ignoring the elephant in the room regarding geopolitical issues, we decided that Americans NEEDED a secure source for personal protective equipment, for this pandemic, AND the next!
We decided to manufacture high-quality 3-ply masks IN THE USA and set up our very own, state-of-the-art production facility in Lemont, Illinois. Our masks are registered with the FDA, and have been tested by two independent laboratories for effectiveness. Rest assured that our masks will not smell "funky", will not give you or your employees a rash, and won't pull on your ears because the manufacturer decided to save a penny by making the ear loops too short with no elastic.
Our masks are registered with the FDA and the masks themselves have been tested by two independent laboratories for effectiveness. Rest assured that our masks will not smell like fumes from unknown substances, will not give you a rash, and won’t pull on your ears because the manufacturer decided to save a penny in elastic.
Our 3-ply face masks are just the beginning. We will be offering our premium, heavy-duty poly gloves, and hybrid gloves to our line of USA Made products soon. Secure Source America can produce millions of masks and gloves per year; we are developing products that will set the standard for quality and safety.
We believe that the American Dream is real, and we consider ourselves blessed to have the opportunity to give back by manufacturing our products in Lemont, Illinois. This great country was founded by risk-takers and grew with the energy of people willing to pursue the American Dream.
Help us reclaim our safety independence, together.
