Bona Fide Masks Corp. Expands Trusted Supply Chain and Broadens Business Model to Better Serve Wholesale Market

Targets Governmental, B2B, and Educational Organizations with New Chengde Technologies Co. Distribution Agreement

Bona Fide Masks Corp. (, part of the Ball Chain Manufacturing Co., Inc. (Ball Chain) family of companies, has expanded its business model by increasing product offerings for institutions, as well as individual customers. This expanded supply chain will help Bona Fide Masks address any potential production issues with individual manufacturers. Under a new distribution deal with highly regarded mask producer Chengde Technologies Co., Ltd. (Chengde), Bona Fide Masks has acquired authorized distribution rights for Chengde products in the United States and Canada. Millions of the Chengde KN95 masks will be available to ship from Bona Fide Masks' stock in the U.S.

The Chengde KN95, like the Powecom® and Harley KN95 masks, was authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use in healthcare settings by healthcare professionals when N95 masks were in short supply. This EUA is no longer active since N95 masks are abundantly available, but it speaks to the quality of this KN95 mask.

Bona Fide Masks will make the high-efficiency Chengde KN95 along with its other masks available to the wholesale community, promoting business-to-business (B2B) transactions for organizations interested in large volume orders from 500 pieces to millions of masks. The goal of this strategy is to make high-quality masks more accessible at higher volumes and lower prices. The company hopes to serve several business verticals with this wholesale approach, including educational institutions, healthcare facilities, government agencies and procurement officers nationwide. Bona Fide Masks is presently expanding its online experience to include a wholesale channel. Additionally, the company will accept purchase orders with net 30-day terms.

Chengde Technologies has 20 years of experience as a recognized high-tech enterprise medical services provider. The company possesses extensive manufacturing experience, specializing in pharmaceuticals, protective masks, packaging solutions and more. The Chengde KN95 is a high-efficiency mask with 95%+ filtration of particulates, under the KN95 standard. "We are thrilled to include Chengde in our suite of mask offerings with the goal of improving service for our B2B customers. As we continue to work toward normal routines in schools, at workplaces, and beyond, we recognize the critical need for organizations to have access to the highest quality of masks at reasonable prices. As with our KN95 providers such as Powecom and Harley Commodity, Chengde is a best-in-class mask provider. As an authorized distributor for Chengde, we will continue to grow and expand our business. We remain committed to our company ethos which includes direct relationships with established, trusted mask providers. We do not and will never purchase masks from third parties, resellers, or intermediaries. Supply chain integrity and full transparency are central to our business model." - Bill Taubner, President, Bona Fide Masks
