Bona Fide Masks Corp. was formed at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in response to the critical shortage of PPE. A local community leader approached President Bill Taubner to inquire whether his fourth-generation, family-owned-and-operated Ball Chain Manufacturing Co., Inc. could leverage its well-established supply chain integrity and global relationships to supply affordable PPE for frontline workers and the general public.

At its inception, Bona Fide Masks® established a brand promise to deliver authentic and trusted masks through a transparent business model. Over three years later, Bona Fide Masks continues to strengthen its commitment to providing authentic masks for the long term. According to Mr. Taubner, “It is very important to me that our customers know that we have an ongoing commitment to our mask business.

We will continue to invest in our company and maintain high levels of inventory in order to ship immediately from stock. We recently became aware that Project N95 plans to cease operations. I would like to thank the entire Project N95 organization for its shared goal in ensuring authenticity and rooting out confusion and fraud in the marketplace. Bona Fide Masks® is proud to be The Trusted Source™ for online shoppers to find authentic products and brands. We are also proud to work with Powecom as its Exclusive U.S. Distributor for KN95 masks. We are incredibly grateful to Powecom for continuing to increase production of their KN95 products for the U.S. market. Being prepared for our customers is our highest priority.”

“We applaud and wholeheartedly support Bona Fide Masks’ enduring commitment to the American people through increased inventory and distribution. Their steadfast commitment to the public is honorable, and we are proud to be their exclusive partner in the U.S. We at Powecom will support  Bona Fide Masks® and their mission through additional machinery, overtime, and other efficiencies. By naming Bona Fide Masks as the Exclusive Distributor of Powecom KN95 masks in the U.S., we hope consumers will buy directly from them to ensure they are purchasing authentic and legitimate Powecom masks, made to the current GB2626- 2019 standard.” – Jing Yip, Powecom Marketing and Export Officer.
