Yes. Hudson Valley Mask Company has a mission to provide PPE for all who need it. We provide masks to the general public, to small medical practices and businesses, as well as to larger medical and industrial companies.
We are very proud to have established our manufacturing facility in Newburgh, NY, and to source many raw materials for our masks in the USA. Because we set out to make the best mask possible, our sourcing decisions were led by quality first and foremost. Extensive research led us to find the very best fabrics for our masks in Milan, Italy – a city long-known for excellence in textiles of all kinds.
We use two fabrics in each mask: Spunbond and Meltblown. Our outer Spunbond layers are lightweight, silky-soft, and offers fluid resistance (an important aspect of protection provided by our masks). Our double inner Meltblown filtering layers are truly unique. Our Meltblown is created using a patented process that ensures that every square inch of the fabric filters evenly. Combined, they make an airy, light, comfortable and powerful piece of PPE. Learn more about our fabrics.
