To Be Celebrated by the Community During a Virtual Event on November 19, 2020

Mount Vernon, NY, October 22, 2020 – Ball Chain Manufacturing Co., Inc., (Ball Chain) the world’s largest manufacturer of ball chain and related accessories, has been recognized by the Westchester County Association (WCA) for leadership. WCA is the leading economic development and business advocacy organization serving Westchester County and the region. Ball Chain will be celebrated during a virtual event on November 19, 2020.


WCA contacted Ball Chain for assistance in meeting the skyrocketing demand for masks at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ball Chain team activated its robust overseas supply chain to bring high quality, authentic masks to the U.S. Following an exhaustive due diligence process, Ball Chain forged relationships with two established mask manufacturers, Guangzhou Powecom Labor Insurance Supplies Co., Ltd. (Powecom) and Guangzhou Harley Commodity Company, Ltd. (Harley). Through its newly-created Bona Fide Masks™ line, Ball Chain continues to import millions of masks and is Powecom’s premier U.S. distributor for their FDA Authorized KN95 masks. Bona Fide Masks has supplied Westchester, NY area hospitals, healthcare providers, schools and other essential businesses with key personal protective equipment (PPE).

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award for leadership from the Westchester community and congratulate our co-honorees Philip Ozuah, M.D., Kenneth Theobalds, Margaret Kaufer and Congresswoman Nita Lowey,” said Ball Chain President Bill Taubner. He continued, “I accept the award on behalf of the entire Ball Chain company that has worked tirelessly over the past few months to ensure that our business continued to distribute authentic and trustworthy products during this challenging time. I also thank the many sponsors who support the WCA and their mission.”
