Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. Production Facility of Pure Environments N95 Disposable Respirator Face Masks

N95 respirators are highly sought by and generally reserved for healthcare workers and industrial operators. Unfortunately the covid-19 pandemic has created global shortages leaving essential workers and contractors to seek alternative measures to protect their respiratory health.

Wearing improper protective gear is like wearing no gear at all and when our government pleaded with the private sector for manufacturing assistance, some took notice. As it turns out, one of those people happens to live right here in my community – referred to as "the 716", our area code.

Recognizing that follow dental associates across the nation were facing PPE shortages, Dr. Todd E. Shatkin (an expert at dental implants) hired 50 people, secured American raw materials, applied for permits, procured state-of-the-art equipment and utilized his clean room manufacturing originally designed for the production of mini denture implants and created Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® Pure Environments. 

Pure Environments by Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® is a domestic, round-the-clock manufacturing facility producing high-quality N95/FFP2 disposable face masks in Buffalo, NY, just a short drive from our corporate office. Our ownership visited their facility and boy were we very impressed!

MDS Associates is proud to partner with Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® and will be a stocking distributor of Pure Environments brand N95 respirator masks!   Please contact us for a free sample and try one for yourself. When you purchase these disposable respirators you truly are supporting American workers and helping one of our local community businesses.
