Arizona Business Consortium Comes Together to Solve Problems, Deliver Solutions to COVID-19 Challenges


The Consortium was established with the goal of providing creative solutions and resources to Arizona businesses as they look for ways to safely open and for the long-term health and success of their businesses. Our goal at US POWER AZ PPE (POWER PPE) is to combine technology and innovation to give businesses, and everyday Arizonans, the resources they need to feel confident and supported in the fight against COVID-19.

Our POWER3 Smart Mask and Smart Filter Inserts utilize patented Smart Filter technology to protect users from airborne particulates and protect against the transfer of microorganisms by blocking microbial particles, making the masks and filters more effective than the surgical grade masks in use currently.

The smart technology allows for the POWER3 products to be worn up to one week, decreasing the impact of waste and increasing the utilization of recyclable masks.

POWER3 Smart Masks and Smart Filter Inserts  are available to resellers  and distributors and will be available to the general public in Sept. POWER PPE plans to produce 10 million masks in Sept., with 1 million of those masks scheduled for donation.

“We are proud to be part of Arizona’s AZ COVID-19 Consortium,” said Kevin Thorpe, president of US POWER AZ PPE. “Together we aim to answer the question ‘how can we make people feel comfortable getting back to normal.’ Each Consortium partner offers a product with this goal in mind. Products range from a spray that lasts and protects for 90 days on any surface, to hand sanitizer that last six hours on your hands, to our POWER3 products can be worn numerous times before disposal – this range is what the inaugural event showcased today.”

The multiple location event highlighted the Consortium’s collective donations of expertise, products and services accompanied by CDC guidelines and local and state requirements. The event began with a tour of the American Legion Post 65, moved to Lo-Lo’s Chicken and Waffles and concluded at the Mesa Sheraton at Wrigleyville.

Consortium partners include AMSAFE, HeroZona Foundation, Noral Clean Technologies, YellowBird, Pantheon Enterprises, Tintoria Piana U.S., Squire Patton Boggs and US POWER AZ PPE.

US POWER AZ PPE LLC is a manufacturer of 3-Ply, reusable smart masks and smart filter inserts for the general public utilizing biocidal technology and marketed in bulk quantities. Located in a brand-new facility in the Gateway Technology Commerce Center in Mesa, Arizona, USA, POWER PPE is a proud Arizona owned and run organization and member of Local First AZ.  Products include the 3-Ply Smart Masks and 3-Ply Smart Filter inserts.
