Founded in 2006 by Herb Farnsworth, HEPACART® is a manufacturer of specialty equipment used to protect people during high risk construction, renovation and maintenance projects. The HEPACART® mission is to develop productive, durable, job-flexible, safe and sustainable containment solutions that protect patients from dust and pathogens in a healthcare and pharmaceutical environment. Our secondary mission is to assist healthcare contractors and facilities managers with new infection-prevention measures that can also save time and money.
HEPACART® has also been utilized by pharmaceutical companies, pet-food factories, and information technology organizations that require dust containment during projects in server rooms and other computer-related clean environments. HEPACART® spent four years in product development and made its first shipments in April of 2007. Those first-generation HEPACART® is still in use today. The company is a sister company of TED Systems, LLC which does complete systems work for fire control, security, intercom and other systems. HEPACART® founder Herb Farnsworth is a co-owner of TED Systems.

Grainger, Inc. that placed HEPACART® products in front of Grainger customers in hospitals, military bases, and state and local government hospitals. Recently, HEPACART® has signed agreements with Communications Supply Corporation and is available through Graybar, Acklands Grainger (Canada), Carolina Datacom (Carolinas) and Firestopping Specialist (Upper Midwest).
