NEW YORK, Feb. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kinnos, makers of Highlight® for Bleach Wipes, is proud to announce a distribution agreement with Armstrong Medical Supply of Houston, Texas. Highlight for Bleach Wipes, an innovative disinfectant additive that adds blue coloring to existing EPA-registered bleach-based disinfectant wipes, provides visualization during the disinfectant application, then fades. This agreement makes Highlight for Bleach Wipes available to the Veterans Health Care System that provides care at 170 medical centers and serves 9 million enrolled Veterans each year.
"Adding Armstrong Medical Supply to the Kinnos distribution channel helps launch Highlight to a large number of government and veteran agencies that are looking for ways to improve their disinfection procedures and make the healthcare setting safer for their staff and patients," said Jeff Kurtzer, Vice President of Sales at Kinnos. "Armstrong's reputation for customer service and distribution to the Department of Veterans Affairs is the kind of partner that will continue to increase Highlight awareness and use while benefiting the US Veteran community."
"Add Blue for Life"— Adding Highlight's patented blue color with existing bleach disinfectant wipes, which then fades to clear, improves staff training on disinfecting technique and mitigates surface coverage failures due to the transparent application of existing products. Highlight's real-time color visualization has been reported in independent studies and whitepapers to consistently show an increase in thoroughness of cleaning, as well as better training when Highlight is added, including a noticeable improvement in ATP scores for hospitals.
"When I first saw Highlight demonstrated for the first time, I contacted Kinnos CEO Jason Kang right there and then," said Durwyn Williams, Vice President of Sales at Armstrong Medical Supply. "The Highlight product is just the type of solution that medical facilities, and especially Veteran facilities, need during this current pandemic."
