About us


Since the beginning of 2020, the team behind the Medex MediMask by Pharmamask brand decided that the ever increasing COVID-19 generated International supply/demand eco system for protective mask supply wasn’t working. 

In some respects, it was fundamentally broken. Out of control demand led pricing led to sub-standard product quality control, over pricing and supply chain fluctuations. The net result were shortages where PPE was most needed and long-term supply uncertainty. 

International raw material and manufacturing process capacity was increasingly being influenced unduly by highest price bidding and was also causing healthcare system PPE supply interruption. In addition, with erratic quality control standards adherence in some markets; buyers were becoming unsure if established safety standards were being met. 

The Pharmamask team decided to make a significant production line engineering investment to build a new production facility in the UK that had quality standards as central to its value proposition and decided to co-produce with an established packaging and distribution partner (PrimePac Ltd) in Ebbw Vale, South Wales. 

Our team have a combined 60-year experience in the healthcare and PPE supply sector. We bring a quality product manufacturing commitment together with a fair, long term ‘made in the UK’ pricing policy designed to cement long term partnerships with UK employers to help prevent and mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus. 

The Pharmamask team’s primary aim is to help Employers ranging from transport operators to multiple retailers, from large manufacturers to local hospitality service providers and from big businesses to the small and micro business communities to get the economy and its workforce back to work in a mutually safe environment for employees, customers, guests, visitors and passengers alike.
