Viral Protection Labs Launches Face Mask Production Center in California and New York

In response to the coronavirus, Viral Protection Labs launched its West Coast operations in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The facility will have the capacity to produce 6,000,000 3-ply and 4-ply surgical face masks per month.

In addition, field-tested and customer-ready for manufacturing, VPL plans to build out its East coast operation in Great Neck, New York by end of May 2020 with the capacity to produce 18,000,000 masks per month then. With the combined bicoastal factories, this will allow for a production rate of 24,000,000 masks per month over the next four months.

Viral Protection Labs said its mission statement promises quality prevention products to the medical community and to the public to help prevent the spread of viruses, harmful bacteria, and other infectious diseases, improve outcomes and ultimately, save lives.

According to company officials, “as one of the newer, Made in America surgical mask companies, VPL ensures high quality control while staying competitive in the marketplace. VPL is entrusted with a full team of Medical Advisors and counsel members contributing towards the evaluation, critique, and communication of the masks, along with the federal and state requirements of all products.”

“Made in America, manufactured and produced using state-of-the-art equipment, these masks will meet FDA specifications for blocking up to 95% BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency), PFE (Particle Filtration Efficiency), VFE (Viral Filtration Efficiency), Differential Pressure, and Blood Penetration,”Company officials explained.

The dire need for more domestically produced masks amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic became clear to the VPL team, officials explained. The proof of the shortage to meet world demands and the United States alone is of grave concern for health care workers and those on the front lines who require critical protective gear to stop the spread of the virus. The United States Strategic National Stockpile cannot provide enough masks on its own. VPL's goal is to fill the void of overseas, Made in China, surgical masks to those Made in America, where no importation is required.
