Bullard –  PPE Available in Kentucky
Bullard is a prominent, Kentucky based PPE manufacturer.  Rather than N95 face masks – it specializes in PAPRS, hoods and face protection. 
Right now its lead times on PAPR systems, due to demand, are at about 40 days and are shortening as it strengthens its capacity to produce the systems.  
However, if Bullard PAPRS are already in use at your facility - replacement filters and parts are readily available to ship within days.
