Hi Reddit, I 'm Lloyd Armbrust, the founder / CEO of Armbrust American. I built a mask factory in Austin, TX capable of producing up to 1.2 million masks a day.
With a global bidding war driving prices to all-time highs, frontline workers are struggling to get the personal protective equipment they need. "Arbitrage" companies, hoping to profit from the situation, have begun buying up stockpiles of masks from China, often selling them at inflated prices.
Rather than become another middle-man, I recognized the need to mass-produce personal protective equipment here, in America.
After several months of work, the production lines in our Austin, TX factory are running 24/7. We are producing over 1 million FDA approved masks a day, at lower prices than the cheapest Chinese masks on Amazon.
