Our Founder

Founder and CEO
Tech founder 🇺🇸, Y Combinator 2010, 5 acquisitions (5 kids too but unrelated) ... and now 😷@armbrust_usa
When COVID-19 hit our shores in 2020, we experienced the worst-case scenario, unable to supply our own frontline heroes with critical personal protective equipment (PPE). The market was absolutely flooded with cheap, flimsy, and downright unsafe masks made overseas. That’s when we drew the line and decided to take matters into our own hands.

We believe every American should have access to medical-grade face masks at a great price.

We’re tired of relying on other countries for our safety. It’s time to reclaim our industrial spirit and take back our freedom. The United States was built on entrepreneurship, innovation, and grit. But over the past 20 years, we let other countries take the lead in strategic manufacturing. At Armbrust, we're changing this. 

When COVID-19 hit our shores in 2020, we experienced the worst-case scenario, unable to supply our own frontline heroes with critical personal protective equipment (PPE). The market was absolutely flooded with cheap, flimsy, and downright unsafe masks made overseas.

That’s when we drew the line and decided to take matters into our own hands. We set up our very own, state-of-the-art production facility right here in Texas, which is already putting millions of medical-grade masks in the hands of Americans.

  • In less than 6 months we have generated $ 7,586,520.72 in revenue 
  • $4.1M gross margins
  • $3.1M has from direct consumer sales
  • $4.4M from enterprise accounts


Founder Lloyd Armbrust comes from 10 years of startup experience:

  • Started Y Combinator backed OwnLocal  and grew to $11M in revenue
  • Veteran of five acquisitions
  • $10M raised from Angels, VCs, and Banks

A growing customer base of state government's like the State of Texas and the State of Illinois; large hospital chains like Kaiser Permanente; and over 3M in direct consumer sales.

Designed, developed, and produced at our Texas facility, each mask is rigorously tested for quality and safety. 

Our FDA-registered masks are constructed with raw virgin polypropylene to block 99.2% of bacteria and particles down to 0.3 microns.  Our cutting edge, beyond clean, Texas facility is working at full speed around the clock to produce sterile, damn near perfect masks.

This is just the beginning. We are scaling our capacity to produce billions of masks per year and developing more products that will set the standard for quality and safety. Let’s reclaim our industriousness, our independence, our freedom—together.
