Nu-X Ventures will have vans delivering the hand sanitizer products around the Los Angeles area every day until all available inventory is depleted. Hospitals and elderly homes will have priority of hand sanitizer products. All hand sanitizer bottles produced will be under the brand Nu-X and will not be for selling purposes.
Nu-X distributed the first few thousand hand sanitizer bottles and bulk gallons this Tuesday in an emergency production run, which went to the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center. Prior to the delivery, UCLA was almost depleted of critical hand sanitizer products, which could have left their medical personnel completely out of stock and further exposed to COVID-19. Over the last few weeks, critical medical suppliers and distributors have been price gouging medical institutions and local governments to maximize profits.
"Any company that uses this time as an opportunity to profit from products that are indispensable towards efforts to fight COVID-19 are misaligned. We see an opportunity to contribute and help and we will do whatever is in our power to do exactly that. We hope other companies with the capacity to do so will do the same will."
- Lorenzo De Plano Senior Director of Nu-X
