Bona Fide Masks®, the exclusive US Distributor of Powecom® KN95 masks, continues its efforts to expand production and work through the Chinese New Year.

Bona Fide Masks Corp.  (, part of the Ball Chain Manufacturing Co., Inc. (Ball Chain) family of companies out of Mount Vernon, New York, underscores its readiness for future demand surges as the country faces an uptick in the "triple threat" of RSV, flu and COVID-19, as well as the upcoming Chinese New Year. 

Coming out of the unprecedented surge of Omicron back in January of 2022, Bona Fide Masks® has made significant capital investments in its business, including the appointment of strategic 3PL partnerships (third-party fulfillment) to improve delivery services, expansion of warehouse facilities to store millions of masks and an in-house testing machine to complement third-party testing. The company also created an internal customer service call center to address customer concerns and inquiries immediately and was the first mask distributor to attain IS0 9001 certification. Given the supply chain challenges that faced many industries in 2022, Bona Fide Masks is in an advantageous position, given its unmatched business model. Leveraging 80+ years of supply chain integrity, Bona Fide Masks has established exclusive U.S. distribution for Powecom and Harley Commodity KN95 masks, as well as direct and authorized distributor relationships with Chengde Technologies and DemeTech. By doing so, the company will always deliver authentic, high-quality KN95, N95 and other masks to the public. Bona Fide Masks is also proud to become an authorized distributor for Celltrion Diatrust COVID at-home test kits.

"We continue to invest in inventory and scale our business to ensure we are prepared for any unforeseen surge in consumer demand due to the tripledemic. Our capital investments have enabled our family-owned and operated business to service customers at a competitive enterprise level, while doing business the right way. We are committed to our brand ethos of integrity, honesty, and transparency. We have worked hard to distinguish ourselves from other sellers by establishing close working relationships with our mask manufacturers. We are so grateful to partners like Powecom that have agreed to work through the Chinese holiday. Having these direct and exclusive relationships empowers us to respond to our customer needs quickly and efficiently." - Bill Taubner, President, Bona Fide Masks.

"We are always proud to work with our esteemed partner and exclusive U.S. distributor, Bona Fide Masks. We hope consumers will buy directly from them to ensure they are purchasing authentic and legitimate Powecom masks. We value not only our business relationship with Bona Fide Masks, but also our strong friendship." - Jing Yip, Powecom's Marketing and Export Officer.
