General precautions in light of the Coronavirus outbreak

We've heard from our Purell hand hygiene suppliers that the demand for hand hygiene products are still growing because of the Coronavirus situation.

We have taken a proactive approach so we still have stock of some hand hygiene products, both bulk packs and personal bottles. Our suppliers are working closely with GOJO and other manufacturers to ensure they can accommodate as many orders as possible, with fresh stock being ordered and delivered. Please contact us if you wish to order in bulk.
