Our Story


In 1988, Fred Crosetto was a couple of years out of the University of Washington, an international business graduate who spent time right after school living in Asia. He started a company to address what he saw as a developing worldwide demand for barrier  protection and infection control products at a time when the only two places one could sell were dental and medical environments.

From a one-man operation in a basement office in Bellevue, Washington to 275-plus team members in 10 cities worldwide, AMMEX has become a global leader in products that enhance health, hygiene, and safety across a wide spectrum of industries.

When you agree to work with AMMEX, you can count, first and foremost, on second-to-none customer service. We don’t sell you gloves and turn you loose to fend for yourself; our customers are “partners” in more than just name.

At the same time, we still view the world through the wide-eyed optimism and boot-strappy determination of our earliest days as a startup: Yes, process matters. Achievement is always of very high importance. But the human element is at the heart of everything we do.

“We’re not looking to be successful just for ourselves,” says Chief Executive Officer Keyo Gold. “We truly want the people we work with to be successful as well. We feel passionate about that.”

AMMEX has been listed on Washington’s “100 Fastest Growing Private Companies” eight times, and has been voted to Seattle Business Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.”

AMMEX’s business plan stresses culture and people first while still embracing innovation, support, speed, and growth, according to Crosetto.

“Our continued global expansion calls for more ‘A’ players around the globe doing awesome things to move us forward,” he says.

Says Gold: “I think our vision of where the business can go in the next three to five years, even the next 10 years, is right in front of us. We’re focused on the right things.”
