Mintie’s Air Cleaners Are in Demand Again

For most of its 81 years, Azusa-based indoor air quality company Mintie has kept a low revenue profile, cleaning interior ventilation systems and developing and selling indoor air isolation units, with occasional bursts of activity during respiratory epidemics.

But with Covid-19 driving new interest in indoor air quality, Mintie — which was recently acquired by a better capitalized industry player — could turn into more than a niche operation.

Since the Covid pandemic began, Mintie’s annual revenue has roughly tripled from its 2018 level of less than $10 million. And that was before its mobile air isolation units were sent to Japan for the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics. Mintie’s isolation unit is a small portable anteroom set up inside a hospital or other medical facility that serves as a transition air lock between the room where respiratory virus patients are housed and the rest of the facility.

A negative pressure machine pulls air out of the anteroom space, cleans it, then discharges it back into the general facility. The goal is to prevent virus molecules or other contaminants from spreading into the general air circulation.

Mintie contracts with an outside manufacturer to produce the units, which it then markets through third-party distributors.

In the runup to the Tokyo Games, Mintie sold more than 1,000 units to about 400 health care facilities and hotels, by far the highest level of demand for its products.
And the orders kept coming.

“We couldn’t make them fast enough and ship them fast enough. The demand was that high,” said James Mintie, the company’s executive vice president and one of the company founder’s grandsons.

Familiar road

But the company has been down this road before with the first severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus in 2003, the H1N1 (“swine flu”) virus of 2009 and the MERS virus that hit the Middle East in 2012.

Each time, demand from hospitals surged for Mintie’s mobile air isolation units. Then, when the epidemic receded, so did Mintie’s sales.

As a result, prior to this latest runup, the company’s revenue had barely budged in 20 years. For a Business Journal profile in 1998, Mintie reported $9.7 million in 1997 revenue. According to Chief Executive Kevin Mintie, when the company was sold to Azusa-based Alliance Environmental Group in April 2019, its 2018 revenue was “less than $10 million.”

The key stumbling block to a growth trajectory has been the extremely niche nature of Mintie’s mobile air containment units, according to Russell Olmsted, an industry consultant who has tracked Mintie for nearly 15 years.

“Admittedly, this is a very specialized need,” Olmsted said. “Most hospitals already have some type of containment equipment. It’s only when there’s an extraordinary circumstance that more is needed.”

That circumstance arose last year with the Covid pandemic.

At Orange County Global Medical Center, a Level 2 trauma hospital in Santa Ana, facilities Director Kyle Houraney faced a crush of Covid patients with insufficient means to control air circulation.

Houraney said he was already familiar with Mintie’s mobile air isolation units because the hospital a decade earlier had used federal grants to purchase two of them.

But those units sat mostly unused, except for the occasional training exercise. In April 2020, though, with the Covid crisis appearing to worsen, Houraney said, he ordered six more units from Mintie.

While they worked well, he said a major problem emerged: The base size air isolation units, which measure 2 feet by 4 feet, were too small to accommodate full hospital beds or X-ray equipment.

Houraney said this problem was solved by ordering extensions from Mintie, much like adding leaves to a dinner table. That brought the cost for each unit to nearly $10,000, about four times the cost of the base size unit.

Family tradition ends

Meanwhile, the recent acquisition of Mintie could lay the groundwork for more revenue growth.

The company’s roots go back to 1940 when founder Ernest Mintie began selling air conditioning filters, then gradually expanded into the business of cleaning ventilation systems.

Ernest’s son Bob Mintie took over in 1967. He in turn passed the leadership baton to his own sons, Kevin and James, in the late 1990s, with Kevin serving as chief executive.

But, as with the case at many family-run businesses, the next generation showed no interest in taking over. So, a few years ago, as they neared retirement age, Kevin and James Mintie began looking to sell the company.

At the same time, Alliance Environmental, which had business lines in asbestos and lead abatement, mold remediation and building demolition, was looking to get into the indoor air quality market.

“We, of course, had received offers before, but this time, given that we had no succession from within, the timing was right,” Kevin Mintie said.

An added bonus, he added, was that Alliance, with its deeper pockets, had the resources to commit to grow Mintie’s revenue base.

“This gives us the chance to handle bigger projects and go into bigger territories,” he said.

Under terms of the deal, Mintie gets to keep substantial independence.

The transaction closed in April 2019; financial terms were not disclosed. Mintie’s headquarters was then consolidated from near downtown to Alliance’s Azusa headquarters.

Since then, Alliance Environmental has added another indoor air quality company, James Mintie said.

“Their plan is to grow the indoor air quality side of their business, including Mintie, to $100 million,” he said.

New product

Mintie is bringing to market another product that has the potential to further lift revenue. The new device filters virus particles and other contaminants out of the air but without the containment unit apparatus of Mintie’s main product.

James Mintie said the company aims to begin selling these filters through third-party distribution channels by the end of the year.

Olmsted, the industry consultant, pointed to another use in recent years for Mintie’s mobile air isolation units: seismic retrofitting or other major construction at hospital facilities.

In most hospital construction projects, he said, plastic sheeting is the main method for keeping dust and other particles generated by the construction from rooms for patients with respiratory diseases or conditions.

But, Olmsted said, plastic sheeting is an inferior method to Mintie’s air isolation technology, especially now that the Covid pandemic has put a spotlight on indoor air circulation, “All of this new interest could provide a permanent boost to Mintie’s sales,” he said.

All these developments hold the promise for the company to permanently break out of its revenue rut. The trick now, Olmsted said, lies in the execution.

“Now that they have a parent company, their ability to market these two product lines will be crucial,” he said.

Making a Difference to a Hospital in a Time of Need

A distributor of the Mintie ECU4, Spykor Environmental, recently provided a much-needed mobile containment unit to Schuyler Hospital in New York state. The Environmental Containment Unit (ECU4) was donated by the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters Local 277 to the hospital.

During the pandemic, the benefit of this portable dust containment unit could not come at a more crucial time. The ECU4 can assist the hospital with any renovation work required on-site at the facility.

The portable containment unit, when paired with a HEPA-filtered negative air machine, will safely contain airborne contaminants and facilitate containment projects easier while meeting all of the required codes and standards every time for all types of construction jobs, such as:

  • Communication / IT Cabling projects
  • Plumbing
  • Pneumatic Tubing installation and maintenance
  • HVAC installation and maintenance
  • Electrical systems installation and maintenance
  • Firewall repair and fire inspection
  • Professional A&E inspections
  • Lighting fixture re-lamping & ballast replacement

The new ECU4 has been clinically evaluated and rigorously tested for efficacy of particle containment, ventilation, and stability in health care environments for Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) containment requirement levels 1-4.

The Local 277 Carpenter’s Union believes in giving back and ensuring that patients are a priority when patient safety is tested daily due to the devastating impact that Covid-19 is having across hospitals.

“We selected Schuyler hospital to donate a full containment unit that maintenance and facility can use to protect patients while they are in the hospital if they have to do in-house maintenance work,” said Fred Swayze, Council Representative Local 277 Carpenter’s Union.

The healthcare workers at Schuyler Hospital and Schuyler Health are sincerely appreciative of this gift and grateful for the ongoing support from the Carpenter’s Union.

“This donation from the Carpenter’s union is amazing! It really showcases the community support we’ve received over the last year and before then. This is so necessary and a wonderfully generous gift,” said Tiffany Bloss, Director of Schuyler Health.

Mintie ECU4 Corridor Flange assists with Surge Capacity during Pandemic

A recent Associate Press article states that California took 292 days to get to 1 million coronavirus infections, but only 44 days to top 2 million. Hospitals are stretched beyond normal capacity, causing some to treat patients in tents, offices, even auditoriums.

Healthcare facilities need to respond to potential circumstances of mass isolation surge capacity quickly and safely. Having a flexible solution to accommodate these unpredictable demands and needs is important, especially given the current, fixed infrastructures of many hospitals and care facilities.

A potential pandemic or large-scale outbreak of disease requires hospitals to establish areas of isolation where any virus can be fully contained using physical barriers and a negative pressure system to prevent airborne illnesses from spreading through heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems.

Mintie, LLC. is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing, distribution and deployment of environmental containment units (ECU), which allow the creation of collapsible, portable and modular containment units or temporary isolation spaces. The latest model, the ECU4, stores easily and can scale rapidly to accommodate large numbers of people or cover large areas including a hospital floor or wing with the addition of the corridor flange. The innovative design meets all ICRA containment requirement levels 1-4 and has been clinically tested and evaluated for efficacy of particle containment, ventilation and stability.

Contact Mintie for a contingency plan for pandemic surge capacity that will assist with mass isolation and further stop the surge of Covid-19 infections at hospitals.

Infection Prevention and Safety in Hospitals

Hospitals worldwide have faced many challenges during this pandemic, including strained resources as they worked tirelessly to control the spread of the virus and keep their patients and staff safe. With a vaccine approved and currently in distribution, we begin to see an end to a long and difficult time. While it will be many months before we have full distribution of the vaccine, we continue to learn what we can do better to prevent or slow the spread of highly contagious viruses, particularly within hospital settings.

Moving forward, hospitals and care facilities can review their current best practices in infection control and look for opportunities to develop, implement or upgrade strategies and protocols to provide the best possible protection for frontline workers and patients. Whether new construction, retrofits or other temporary and flexible solutions, investing in HVAC systems with appropriate components and infrastructure ensures maximum flexibility in handling the expected and unexpected. has an informative article, “5 Hospital HVAC Design Strategies for the Post-COVID-19 World,” to help facilitate discussions with a qualified indoor air quality management services company such as Mintie LLC on your HEPA filtration, air handling unit, negative pressure environment, and return air and exhaust air needs.

Mintie was founded in 1940 and has been a premiere leader in indoor air quality management services and product solutions development, portable infection control, mass isolation and environmental containment solutions. The company plays a national and increasingly international role in designing and developing innovative products and service solutions that work toward a safer, healthier and more productive environment for our clients.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) – Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

What You Should You Know?

How COVID-19 Spreads?

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Can someone spread the virus without being sick?

  • People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
  • Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

Spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

How easily the virus spreads

How easily a virus spreads from person-to-person can vary. Some viruses are highly contagious (spread easily), like measles, while other viruses do not spread as easily. Another factor is whether the spread is sustained, spreading continually without stopping.

The virus that causes COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”) in some affected geographic areas.

Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.


Watch for Symptoms

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.

The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Call your doctor if you…

  • Develop symptoms, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 OR
  • Have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19.

Prevention and Treatment


There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website.

For information specific to healthcare, see CDC’s Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings.

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. CDC does have specific guidance for travelers.


There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms. For severe cases, treatment should include care to support vital organ functions.

People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider immediately.

See Interim Guidance for Healthcare Professionals for information on persons under investigation.


CDC has developed a new laboratory test kit for use in testing patient specimens for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19. The test kit is called the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time Reverse Transcriptase (RT)-PCR Diagnostic Panel.” It is intended for use with the Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast DX Real-Time PCR Instrument with SDS 1.4 software. This test is intended for use with upper and lower respiratory specimens collected from persons who meet CDC criteria for COVID-19 testing. CDC’s test kit is intended for use by laboratories designated by CDC as qualified, and in the United States, certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) to perform high complexity tests. The test kits also will be shipped to qualified international laboratories, such as World Health Organization (WHO) Global Influenza Surveillance Response System (GISRS) laboratories. The test will not be available in U.S. hospitals or other primary care settings. The kits will be distributed through the International Reagent Resource (IRR).

On Monday, February 3, 2020, CDC submitted an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) package to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in order to expedite FDA permitted use of the CDC diagnostic panel in the United States. The EUA process enables FDA to consider and authorize the use of unapproved, but potentially life-saving medical or diagnostic products during a public health emergency. The U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services declared the SARS-CoV-2 virus a U.S. public health emergency on Friday, January 31, 2020. FDA issued the EUA on February 4, 2020. IRR began distribution of the test kits to states, but shortly thereafter performance issues were identified related to a problem in the manufacturing of one of the reagents which led to laboratories not being able to verify the test performance. CDC is remanufacturing the reagents with more robust quality control measures. New tests will be distributed once this issue has been addressed. CDC continues to perform initial and confirmatory testing.

Serology Test for COVID-19

CDC is working to develop a new laboratory test to assist with efforts to determine how much of the U.S. population has been exposed to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19.

The serology test will look for the presence of antibodies, which are specific proteins made in response to infections. Antibodies can be found in the blood and in other tissues of those who are tested after infection. The antibodies detected by this test indicate that a person had an immune response to SARS-CoV-2, whether symptoms developed from infection or the infection was asymptomatic. Antibody test results are important in detecting infections with few or no symptoms.

Initial work to develop a serology test for SARS-CoV-2 is underway at CDC. In order to develop the test, CDC needs blood samples from people who had COVID-19 at least 21 days after their symptoms first started. Researchers are currently working to develop the basic parameters for the test, which will be refined as more samples become available. Once the test is developed, CDC will need additional samples to evaluate whether the test works as intended.

Mintie Announces Latest Generation of Fully Scalable Environmental Containment Units Designed to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Other Lethal Pathogens

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – February 18, 2020 – Mintie LLC, the global provider of indoor environmental systems, today announced the latest fully scalable Environmental Containment Unit (ECU) and mass isolation system designed to help prevent the spread of the deadly Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and other respiratory and airborne illnesses.
