Wilmington, Aug 11, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - United States Navy veteran John Clary owns Tri-State Media in Wilmington Ohio. Recognized as an official Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business by the Department of Veteran Affairs, his company makes labels for a variety of industries including healthcare and automotive.
In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, John's company was impacted significantly. Honda, who account for almost 60% of their company revenue, quit ordering automotive labels as production slowed then halted. But the Navy taught him how to navigate the chaos, think innovatively, and stay on a mission under extreme pressure. In a continued spirit of service, John chose to pivot rather than shut down the family business he and his wife started nearly 20 years ago.
The Clary family huddled. Answering the call of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine's plea for additional PPE, they regrouped to create a new type of face mask. One with no ear loops, snappy elastic bands or ties that go around a wearer's head. Instead, the new face masks are held gently yet securely in place with a skin-friendly, soft gel adhesive. John retooled his medical label line to manufacture the innovative face masks. The outcome is a new type of lower-cost, high-quality peel & stick face mask that's cooler to wear compared to regular face masks, and moisture resistant too.
Says, Mr. Clary, "demand from businesses has been very strong in Ohio where we're based and we've scaled up our Wilmington manufacturing facility so we can now make our One & Done Mask available nationally. The reception from the salon and barber industry helped us sell a million masks in our first 30 days and we realized that every business or individual who tries a One & Done Mask wants them too. They're just really comfortable, breathable, much cooler to wear, and easy to use. I think we fixed everything people hate about wearing a face mask".
American made and patent-pending, the family has launched a brand new website, www.OneAndDoneMask.com, where you can order the face masks online with complimentary shipping to your doorstep. With face mask-wearing becoming mandatory in many towns, cities and states, One & Done Mask is even expediting orders made before 3PM EST, to ship the same day.
