The N95 Mask Company story
The N95 Mask Company was founded by Ayrton Campbell, a 31-year-old entrepreneur, after receiving an SMS from the NHS advising him to stay home for 12 weeks, due to having Crohn’s Disease.
It dawned on him how much his life would change so he started to look at what he could do to protect himself once the 12 weeks were up. It was at this point that he found himself faced with hundreds of different masks to choose from, all with varying levels of protection and guarantees, but many that were uncertified. He wasn’t alone either - he could see other consumers asking the sellers the same questions that he had, to which there were no definitive answers.
After much research and discussions with leading epidemiologists, GPs and scientists, Ayrton identified the most effective mask as the N95, and made it his mission to create a supply infrastructure of quality N95 masks to aid the UK’s fight against Covid-19.
As a company we are dedicated to ensuring everyone in the UK has access to a steady supply of effective face masks. We have offered our entire stock and supply infrastructure support to the NHS, and should they decide to accept at any point we will revert to supplying the NHS as a priority.
This is the start of a long journey and our model is designed to go the distance. Our overall aim is to ensure that N95 face masks are accessible and affordable for everyone in the UK for as long as they are required.
