We’re tired of relying on other countries for our safety. It’s time to reclaim our industrial spirit and take back our freedom.
What Drives Us
The United States was built on entrepreneurship, innovation, and grit. But over the past 20 years, we let other countries take the lead in strategic manufacturing.
When COVID-19 hit our shores in 2020, we experienced the worst case scenario, unable to supply our own frontline heroes with critical personal protective equipment (PPE). The market was absolutely flooded with cheap, flimsy, and downright unsafe masks made overseas.
That’s when we drew the line and decided to take matters into our own hands.
We set up our very own, state-of-the-art production facility right here in Texas, which is already putting millions of medical-grade masks in the hands of Americans.
This is just the beginning. We are scaling our capacity to produce billions of masks per year and developing more products that will set the standard for quality and safety.
Let’s reclaim our industriousness, our independence, our freedom—together.

Launching Armbrust American
...When COVID-19 first began, CEO Lloyd Armbrust says it reminded him of a college experience he had working in the mold remediation industry. It taught him about the importance of N-95 masks and poor air quality. “With my manufacturing background, I also knew where a lot of things were being created. I knew that most of the masks in the world are being created not just in China, but Wuhon China,” said Lloyd Armbrust. “I said to myself, man what if this is like SARS and it takes down Wuhon. What are we going to do?”

...One measure of the success of his business, Armbrust said, will be the day an American company does not have to choose between a low-cost mask made abroad and a higher-cost one made in the United States, he said. "We don’t need a bailout," he said. "We don’t need other countries. We need the finest quality products with the most effective materials, full supply chain control, and no foreign dependence. We need made in America, made in Texas.”
