All Service Mask
This photo, clearly not from the recent plant tour, helps illustrate how long MSA has been involved in bringing safety products to those who need them. Pictured here is the All Service Mask, circa 1920s. According to a book created to celebrate the company's Centennial in 2014: "Inspired by the effectiveness of the Burrell Gas Mask, designed during World War I, MSA developed a new industrial mask for American workers that reportedly filtered out nearly every industrial toxic substance known at that time."
This sign hangs up near the ceiling of MSA's factory in Murrysville. No one forgets the importance of the products made here.
