Greensboro, NC (March 15, 2022) – TAIJI Medical Supplies, Inc. (TMS), located in Lincolnton, NC has collaborated with Greensboro, NC-based Carolina Liquid Chemistries Corp. to provide much-needed ASTM Level 3 surgical face masks to hospitals, surgery centers, dentists’ offices, and other healthcare facilities. In August of 2021, TMS received 510(k) clearance for its Professional Series Level 3 Surgical Face Mask from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). TMS selected Carolina Liquid Chemistries as its distribution partner to the US market.

“We are always looking for new and better ways to supply our healthcare customers,” says Philip Shugart, CEO of CLC. Mr. Shugart continued, “Because we already supply so many healthcare facilities, we were well positioned to expand that value proposition to include PPE [personal protective equipment]. And since these are such high quality, American-made masks, this partnership fit perfectly with our goals as a company.”
