I promised I would create a shout out to the N95 MaskCo and specifically the founder Ayrton Campbell. I need to endure medical tests this week, due to the medicinal drugs I inject and ingest and I’ve been very nervous about attending this appointment. I am in the most vulnerable group of patients in the UK of contracting Covid-19 and have been shielding for nine weeks so far and have not left my home. I have been fortuitous as my usual weekly medical tests were left to let run but now my maximum time is up and I have to attend this appointment. Like many of us I searched online for masks that might provide more protection than the typical mask but not so great to take them from the clinical staff on the NHS front line. Ayrton Campbell came to my rescue! It never ceases to amaze me how things work out sometimes. Every day PR companies contact me, with all manner of products and some not always related to what I’m looking for. But when the N95 MaskCo pr company email dropped into my inbox, it stopped me, it was something I was personally searching for.
The N95 MaskCo was set up by 31-year-old entrepreneur Ayrton Campbell after he received 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.
Campbell explains “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”.
He’s such a nice guy, he even popped a few masks in the post to me and wished me luck for my appointment. If you’re in a similar position at the moment and want to ensure greater protection, then I recommend you place an order for some new masks here. I certainly feel more comfortable with this added protection, thank you Ayrton!
Ayrton Campbell is a successful entrepreneur with extensive experience in international sourcing and supply infrastructure. After starting his post-graduate career as an accountant, Ayrton has since joined up with other entrepreneurial individuals to create a portfolio of successful businesses.
The N95 Mask Company is a new venture for Ayrton in that it is not a primarily profit-making venture, but instead, it is designed to have social impact.
