With the idea of automating the production of a simple disposable paint filter, Louis M. Gerson started business in 1956 in a small auto-repair garage in Boston, Massachusetts.
The principles of automation and innovation upon which Louis Gerson started his small business, are the core values that have driven the Gerson Company in the following sixty-five years.
Today, Gerson® distinguishes itself as a vertically integrated, prime manufacturer of a full range of air-purifying respirators, from filtering facepieces to half-mask to full face respirators, all products of outstanding design and value. Filtering facepiece respirators for example, such as various styles of N95 respirators, have been produced in Middleboro, MA since 1985 on unique, high-speed equipment of their own design and construction, incorporating their own melt-blown filter material to provide high-performing filtration with exceedingly comfortable breathing characteristics. Other respiratory products are produced in overseas assembly operations exclusive to Gerson, again using Gerson-owned and designed equipment, as well as their US-made melt blown filters, to remain globally competitive. Middleboro, MA is also the production site of Gerson paint strainers and tack cloths, all produced on their proprietary automated equipment to exacting quality standards that deliver consistent user value.
The Gerson spirit of over sixty-five years of manufacturing and product innovation remains strong.
