New Ppe Business Pandemic Protect Working Around The Clock To Meet High Demand For Key Industries

October 29, 2020 Business News No Comments

A burgeoning Australian personal protective equipment business, which was inundated with orders during the peak of COVID-19, says despite the rate of infections going down, demand has not stopped and is expected to continue well into 2021 and beyond.

Pandemic Protect Managing Director David Sumich said work at their Queensland-based business, which began in May 2020, has been nonstop. The business provides a wide range of PPE gear including masks, sanitisers, gloves, first aid kits, thermometers and dispensers to businesses and individuals.

“We have worked with clients of all sizes, from National Seniors Australia, to Helloworld travel agencies, to national retail companies such as Stuck on You and Checkpoint Systems,” he said. “We have also recently signed an agreement to work with Reliance Risk who are a pre-eminent risk management company specialising in the large stadiums and arena space. We expect PPE demand in the key industries of travel, medical and restaurants, where there is a high rate of contact, to only increase given the world as it is now is the new normal.”

Mr Sumich said the new business began as an offshoot of their travel business, National Travel which specialises in providing travel solutions and premium travel to clients such as National Seniors Australia, Amway Australia, and Queensland Rugby Union.

“Obviously with the onset of COVID-19, we couldn’t provide travel services during this time. So we decided to pivot and work with our travel clients and their memberships by providing preventative equipment whilst directly supporting the frontline of health services. From there the business has grown exponentially.”

Pandemic Protect has now partnered with key suppliers to deliver high quality protective equipment direct to clients doors as well as Gold Coast Hospital Foundation. The business donates five per cent from every sale to the foundation.

Mr Sumich said that as PPE and safe hygiene practices are now so important in the ‘new world’, the challenge will be for people to realise that these practices must be carried forward well into the future, even if the rate of infections go down.

“The need will be ongoing which is why we believe, the role we are playing in providing support for individuals and businesses is so important,” he said. “We will continue to invest and grow our company, building our team, increasing our warehousing capacity as well as nurturing our great supplier relationships to ensure we can continue to deliver great products at fantastic value.

“We have also begun exploring providing international customers the same access to PPE that our Australian customers enjoy. Our mission is to continue helping all Australians make their lives, homes and business places safer in our new COVID world.”
