Manufacturing Through COVID-19 Pandemic: Meeting Customer’s Needs One Wipe at a Time

Updated March 17, 2020

Sani Professional continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic (SARS-CoV-2) and its impact on both our customers and our regular business operations. Our number one priority is the protection of guests, foodservice professionals, families and our employees. We understand the urgency around preparing for this pandemic in the United States and have implemented the following measures:

Supply Chain:

When concerns over COVID-19 first surfaced, Sani Professional conducted a full supply chain assessment in anticipation of the increased demand. This assessment included evaluating capacity as well as raw material availability. Our products are manufactured in the United States, with a robust supply chain that is well positioned to address increased demand. As such, Sani Professional does not rely on manufacturing in China or other countries impacted by COVID-19. Sani Professional has sufficient inventory of raw materials, and we do not anticipate any supply chain disruption due to raw material availability.

Production:

As global demand for certain infection prevention products exceeds supply, Sani Professional is working with existing distribution partners and customers to ensure they are adequately supported. As a result, Sani Professional has:

  • Ramped up production, including hiring workers, adding shifts and line capacity.
  • Increased production of our infection prevention products, including surface disinfectants and hand sanitizers.

 

Worker Safety:

Our priority is to our customers and to our employees. Sani Professional has developed preparedness plans to help protect the safety of our employees, while safely continuing business operations. This includes eliminating all international business travel and all ‘non critical’ domestic airline business travel, consistent with the United States government policy.

Distribution:

Sani Professional has seen a sharp increase in orders, and we are working closely with our business partners to manage the ongoing shifts in demand. We are well prepared to continue servicing our existing customers’ growing demand.

Learn More:

As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we will continue to monitor the CDC website for resources and further guidance. In the meantime, we recommend that the general public continue to observe good personal hygiene practices, including hand washing, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette, as well as surface disinfection using an EPA-registered product.
