A HYDE-BASED company has donated 600 litres of hand sanitiser to care homes, food banks and other social care and charitable organisations near its distribution centres.
Now, Invopak is further offering those in need and local to its depot at Hyde Point, Dunkirk Lane, to apply to receive one of the 120 five-litre jerry cans of the product.Selected worthy causes can collect the containers from Invopak’s car park and dispense the water-based sanitiser in whichever way is best for them.
The product has been provided free to Britain’s leading supplier of rigid packaging for industry by customer, Hybrisan, an advanced antimicrobial specialist based in South Wales.
Invopak owner Arjen Cooper-Rolfe said: “We have been working flat out through the coronavirus outbreak to keep vital supplies of packaging coming through to the NHS, local authorities and businesses of all kinds throughout the nation.
“So, it is great to be able to put our packaging network to such a good use.
“We are looking to distribute the sanitiser to places like care homes and food banks who can make good use of a bulk supply, rather than individuals.
“At a time when we have had to stay apart, we are working even better together as a team.
“Our values have come into their own at the very time it would have been easy to forget them.
“Many customers have been extremely grateful as they are desperate to source packaging for their products.”
More than 4,000 British and Irish companies rely on Invopak to source and supply plastic and metal packaging for products such as resins, catering supplies, paints and fragrances.
Additionally to Hyde, Invopak operates out of Southam in the West Midlands and Glasgow, with a sister company in Dublin called Ashtown Packaging.
Invopak is also experiencing huge demand for packaging for medical supplies, especially HDPE and PP bottles, buckets, jars, kegs and IBCs.
