Our story

Blasting nova2000

Where we began

Founded on the factory floor, our story begins in the 1970’s working in the abrasive blasting industry. With the heavy PPE being used taking its toll on our workers, we launched a mission to create the world’s most comfortable respiratory protection. Not prepared to compromise on safety or comfort, we started what has become a 40+ year journey, never satisfied with better, always striving for the best.

Today, that philosophy still stands as we now join forces with the GVS Group, a global market leader and specialist in the filtration industry. Together, we embark on a new frontier in respiratory protection as we seek to revolutionize the industry for the better.

About us nova 3

We are champions for safety standards.

Having worked in the industry ourselves, we know that safety does not always mean comfort. In our mission to advance your safety and increase your productivity we use the very best creative engineering minds, along with our customer's and other industry worker's input. The result is respiratory equipment that makes the job safer, easier, and ultimately, respiratory protection equipment that you will want to wear each day.
