Our Story


Our goal is to flatten the curve and save lives.

1st American PPE was founded in central North Carolina in 2021 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With wholesalers and importers charging outrageous prices for masks, the need for cheap, safe, and protective masks produced on American soil has never been greater.

By producing large quantities of face masks in North Carolina, 1st American PPE has two major goals: save lives and supply American healthcare workers and companies with masks that are affordable and available during a worldwide supply line crunch.

​Our personal protection equipment makes zero sacrifices. We aim to create the most comfortable, reliable products on the market. Our team has sourced quality materials and advanced equipment to ensure that our customers feel safe every time they use a 1st American PPE product. The piece of mind in knowing you have the best available protection produced in the United States is a founding principle that drives all of us at 1st American PPE.

Ultrasonic ear band welding for US Made 95 Masks

All of our face masks filter at least 95 percent of airborne particles. Our premium-quality, manufactured in USA respirators are designed with ultrasonic welding technology to maximize comfort and wearability by eliminating glue and odor.

Even with global supply issues, we’re working hard to ensure you, our customer, we’ll always have face masks and K/N95  respirators available for public and private use. We firmly believe in a proactive approach to healthcare. We want to empower you to take charge of your well-being, and with our global partnership and shipping/logistics capabilities, we offer rapid delivery of our product to meet the needs of both private consumers and the healthcare community who risk their own safety fighting for our lives every day. It is our honor to play a small part in contributing to the fight against COVID-19.
