Coronavirus - Supply and Demand
3 March 2020
** PLEASE BE ADVISED, IF A PRODUCT IS NOT NAMED IN OUR GUIDELINES, WE WOULD NOT CURRENTLY RECOMMEND IT AGAINST CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) **
Following the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, and worldwide advice on good hand hygiene being one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of the virus, we have experienced a very high demand for Handsan, our 70% alcohol-based, authorised biocide, hand disinfectant, and some of our other bactericidal handwashes.
Whilst we continue manufacturing these products, we are currently encountering global supply challenges with our bottles and containers, due to the exceptional volumes. Therefore, we are having to limit and monitor orders per distributor. This will also affect supply to end user customers.
In order to assist supply to distributors and customers, we are asking users to retain their empty EVANS 500ml, and 75ml Handsan, bottles and re-fill these from the corresponding 5 L container using a pelican pump.
Re-using and re-filling these bottles will also help us all reduce our consumption of plastic and our impact on the environment.
Supply of Safe Zone Plus and Chlor Tabs has also been affected by high demand, following publication of our Coronavirus Guidelines on surface disinfection.
We are fully aware of the concerns over supply of these products and we are making every effort to meet demand. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this period.
Ensure you and your customers know the correct procedure for effective hand washing and sanitising. Contact our sales office to obtain your laminated wallcharts or download via www.evansvanodine.co.uk/leaflets
