Clenova expands production of hand sanitizer, hand soaps
Safety and cleaning products supplier Clenova has upped the production for its hand sanitizer and hand soap products to meet a continued need for the items during the coronavirus pandemic.
Clenova is expanding production to five lines running production of hand cleaning products, producing for both private label distribution and branded hand sanitizers and hand soaps. The chemical company said the stepped-up production will enable them to produce large quantities of private label hand sanitizers and soaps for high-volume distribution partners.
In total, the company will be producing 160 million uses a week of hand soaps and hand sanitizers. The lines are located in the company’s primary manufacturing facility in Troy, Mich., where it’s headquartered. The facility is FDA-registered for the production of hand sanitizers and other skin cleansing products.
"FDA registration is important to us, to our distributors and to the people who use our products. We are committed to manufacturing products that are safe and effective and meet regulatory requirements,” said Andrew Reid, director of operations, Clenova.
The company said the expanded production is to help distributors keep shelves stocked with these essential items to help prevent the spread of pathogens such as flu and the coronavirus.
"We are here to meet the needs of our distribution partners. As market demand continues to evolve and grow, we will be here as a trusted supplier. Our distributors count on us for high-quality products that are available when they need them, under our brand or their own,” Reid said.
