A PASSION FOR CLEAN AIR & RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
The KandyMask story starts 12 years ago when Iannique Renaud decided to travel to China.
While abroad his boy suffered a severe respiratory attack due to the high levels of pollution in the air. His son started turning blue and he had to rush his son to the hospital. Luckily they arrived in time and the doctors hooked him up to ventilators to clear his airways.
After a night in the hospital, the doctors told Iannique that his son had severe asthma. This meant Iannique had to find ways to protect his son's lungs from contaminants for the rest of his life.
Iannique, started researching filtration technologies so his son could live a normal life. He ended up building an air filtration system to protect his son's lungs while he was at home.
Now that the inside had filtered air he turned his attention to protecting his son while outside. He embedded medical-grade filtration into a recyclable comfortable exterior that people would love to wear. People all over the world started to wear KandyMask because of the filtration capabilities and respiratory protection it provided.
For over a decade Iannique built one of the most respected filtration companies in Asia. In 2018, he decided to move back to Canada so his family could be free from the pollution in Asia.
Little did he know that his years of filtration experience would come in handy more than ever when the global pandemic hit.
