Jasper County Startup to Manufacture PPE - Indiana Face Mask
Feb 17, 2021
The owner of a Rensselaer-based filtration manufacturer is launching a startup focused on producing personal protective equipment. Fred Geyer, who owns American Melt Blown & Filtration, founded Indiana Face Mask along with his wife and son, with plans to add up to 14 jobs.  The company plans to manufacture N95 respirator masks and other medical-grade supplies in Jasper County.  The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says the Geyers will make a "significant investment" to transform a vacant building in Rensselaer into a federally-approved PPE production facility, though specific financial details were not disclosed.  The IEDC says, when fully operational, the facility is expected to be able to produce 17 million N95, Class 1 and Class 3 surgical masks per year.
