NOVI, Mich., Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Specialty medical supply company SLI Medical announced today the company has delivered more than 15,000 COVID-19 safety toolkits to JobsOhio to support small businesses in safely reopening during the pandemic. Each of the small business toolkits includes 100 3-ply masks, 10 KN-95 masks, and a 24 oz. bottle of hand sanitizer.
"Over the past eight years we've become a trusted supplier of specialty medical supplies and equipment to the U.S. healthcare community," said Josh Kaplan, President, SLI Medical. "We have built long-term relationships within the medical supply chain and have created a diverse flow of products that has allowed us to respond quickly to the changing needs of our clients. Our job is to get PPE directly into the hands of those who need it as quickly as possible and we are proud of the job our team has done over the past six months to do just that."
SLI Medical and JobsOhio delivered 1.65 million masks and 15,000 bottles of hand sanitizer through six regional distribution sites to small and minority businesses with fewer than 100 employees. Highlighting the agility of small businesses in responding to changing customer requirements, SLI Medical has delivered more than 50M units of personal protection equipment (PPE) this year. Items that hospitals have found difficult to procure from larger medical companies – including isolation gowns, N95 Masks, Nitrile Gloves, Thermometers, Covid-19 Sample Collection kits, Covid-19 Rapid Test Kits, Hand Sanitizer and more – SLI Medical has delivered quickly through its secure international supply chain. SLI Medical has provided more than 20 million gowns, 20 million masks, 8 million gloves and 2 million face shields to protect healthcare workers in the U.S. from COVID-19.
