Ansell protects frontline healthcare workers
15 June 2021
ANSELL HAS signed a contract under the terms of a European Union (EU) Framework agreement to help meet the ongoing and critical need for PPE to support the pandemic response.
The agreement provides assurance of Ansell’s capacity to supply up to three million AlphaTec 2000 disposable gowns, if required, over the next twelve months; to protect key frontline healthcare workers involved in deploying COVID-19 vaccines.
This latest contract announcement is the culmination of Ansell’s unfaltering commitment to a process commencing in January 2020. Reacting rapidly to the growing pandemic-driven demand for PPE, Ansell increased its manufacturing and distribution capacity, ramping up production in Europe, Sri Lanka and China of its AlphaTec 2000 disposable gowns. In addition, contingency plans were put in place to ensure supply chains remained robust regardless of any potential disruption.
