PURELL bottles being held up for display

How GOJO is keeping pace with the changing landscape

Recent research undertaken by skin health and surface hygiene expert, GOJO Industries-Europe, has revealed that eight in 10 people now expect to see hand sanitiser in public facilities and estimates that the majority (60%) expect to use it on a daily basis.

With higher hygiene expectations from public health authorities and customers, GOJO is making substantial investments to increase its capacity and meet current and future demand.

GOJO has been able to shorten supply lines and increase production to historic levels, by running its facilities 24/7; working with existing suppliers to dramatically increase raw materials and packaging; and forging creative partnerships with new companies to source additional components such as bottles, pumps, and caps.

For example, offering round bottles instead of the iconic square bottles PURELL® sanitiser is usually sold in enabled a 150% increase in the rate at which hand sanitiser was delivered to the market.

Chris Wakefield, Managing Director UK & Ireland, GOJO Industries-Europe Ltd, said: “Last year, we shipped at a rate four times higher than the 2019 baseline, and this demand looks set to continue.

“The pandemic has prompted a major shift in attitudes, and when society begins to re-open, the need for safe and effective hand and surface hygiene products will expand dramatically.

“We have taken major steps to increase our capacity so that we can continue to serve our customers and ultimately, help people re-enter the world and workforce with peace of mind.”

Despite a plethora of new products entering the market, PURELL® remains the market leader, thanks to its focus on formulation without compromise.

Dermatologically tested, its scientifically advanced formulation has been proven to maintain skin health, whilst killing 99.99% of the most common germs that may be harmful, including coronavirus with a contact time of just 30 seconds.

NHE365 Virtual Festival: Digital Healthcare

The integration of new technology, such as using virtual outpatient appointments instead of face-to-face reviews of patients in the hospital. Adapting the ways in which our NHS workers serve people has been critical in continuing to provide high-quality treatment, a positive patient experience and preventing Covid-19 transmission during the pandemic. Our healthcare sector has the potential to transform the way we continue to provide essential services while also improving patient care. But how easy is the integration of these innovations into routine NHS practice?

On the 28th of October, at the NHE365 Virtual Hospitals & Technology Enabled Care online event, we will be discussing patient flow and experience, reducing waiting times, reducing the patient backlog and increasing technology adoption. Will you be attending?
