MONTREAL — On Mar. 24, the Medicom Group, a manufacturer of surgical and respiratory masks, announced the launch of Medicom Expressions, the company’s first face mask designed for non-medical use. Historically, Medicom products have only been available to healthcare and other professionals through a network of authorized distributors, primarily in the medical and dental sectors. The Medicom Expressions line, the company’s first direct-to-consumer brand, is now available to consumers in the U.S. and Canada online through Amazon.

Infection control experts, such as the CDC and government authorities around the world, have recommended that masks be worn in public places or whenever social distancing is not possible. These guidelines have created new selling channels for manufacturers and given way to new brands of face masks to meet increased demand. However, not all masks offer the same protection, breathability and comfort. Medicom Expressions face masks are made especially for consumers by the same people trusted by healthcare professionals.

“Medicom has been manufacturing PPE and helping protect healthcare professionals for over 30 years. We have applied those years of expertise in designing our new Medicom Expressions consumer face mask,” explained John Tourlas, Medicom President, North America.

As Medicom continues to add manufacturing capacity around the globe and set up new manufacturing facilities in Canada, the US, the UK, France and Singapore, the company plans to expand the new consumer line to include a wide range of colours and patterns made at medical-grade mask factories around the world.
