Micron Technologies has been manufacturing and selling three-ply medical grade face masks since August 2020. The majority of Micron Technologies’ sales have been to provincial governments; however, sales are also being completed online to various other customers. Micron Technologies is considering acquiring additional manufacturing equipment and hiring more personnel as it is currently operating at full capacity.

In addition to the three-ply medical grade face masks, Micron Technologies is also manufacturing N95 Model 8800 face masks. Micron Technologies’ N95 Model 8800 face masks have been approved by Health Canada and the US Food and Drug Administration. Additionally, the N95 Model 8800 face masks have passed testing with Kinetrics Analytical and Environmental Laboratories. Accordingly, Micron Technologies is confident that its N95 Model 8800 face masks will obtain medical-grade certification from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in the coming weeks. There are currently a limited number of NIOSH approved medical face mask manufacturers and the demand for these masks in outpacing supply.
