Welcome Intelligent PPE Supplies Initiative…

The supply of ‘Personal Protective Equipment’ (PPE) for Health Services personnel and key workers has proved a major difficulty throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Securing reliable sources for products that meet the required specifications continues to prove a considerable logistics challenge. This situation is also likely to get worse in the short term as people leave lockdown, and many governments around the world are now starting to advise that the wider population wear face masks and other personal protective equipment as a condition of relaxing social regulations and getting back to work.

The global demand for PPE products is therefore much greater than supply. The market is extremely volatile with pricing changing on almost a daily basis in regard to unit costs, transportation charges and factory production output demands.  There is also a large amount of poor quality PPE in circulation that does not meet the required EN standards and is supplied with inadequate CE certification and test reports.  Without background knowledge in PPE products it is understandable that many businesses are unsure regarding the most suitable PPE products for their specific use case, and they have no experience or idea how to correctly validate the quality of items from suppliers.  In addition, it is also extremely important that businesses do not order a higher grade of PPE products than required, which may inadvertently take essential stock away from frontline health workers where a high level of protection is required.

This is where our new collaborative business comes in, please welcome ‘Intelligent PPE Supplies Initiative’.  Our initiative has been established specifically to counter these PPE supply problems and we are a collaboration of highly proficient business-people from the UK, China and Japan.  Due to our regional locations and applicable working time zones, we are able to operate around the clock, 24/7, to deliver product solutions that other suppliers would find hard to achieve.

Please see our promotional flyer below:

Using our expertise, we can establish new supply chains for PPE and other medical items from source, and back this up with market leading logistics; ensuring goods arrive safely to our customers and in good time.

We are specialists at sourcing bona fide, legitimate and high-quality PPE and other medical products from factories that other suppliers may have missed.  All the factories we use are ‘white listed’ for export and fully endorsed and verified against government systems in the country of origin.

Integracare Client Testimonial…

Thanks to Dan from Integracare for the amazing testimonial.

“Just want to say how much I appreciate the recent delivery of hand sanitiser, and that fact that you made good your promise regarding timescales – you have helped safeguard many vulnerable people we support.

I’m perhaps most grateful for the way in which your company undertook checks on our company before agreeing to supply us with a scarce and valuable product during the current COVID-19 crisis. Whilst some other companies and individuals are exploiting this crisis for financial or selfish gains, it’s refreshing to come across a company such as yours that has integrity and social conscience.”

At Intelligent Wholesale, we’re really pleased we could help! We’re going to continue supplying to businesses while we still can. Rest assured our distribution staff are fully protected with the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

Unfortunately, due to high demand we are no longer able to supply larger pallet quantities at the present time.

Alcohol Hand Sanitiser 1 Per Case

Pursan Alcohol Sanitiser for Smaller Businesses

Pursan alcohol hand sanitiser with 70% v/v alcohol is now available for smaller businesses. We’ve made this possible due to the high call volume received from smaller companies who can’t get hold of alcohol sanitiser which they need to ensure staff safety. Our Pursan alcohol hand sanitiser is currently in production and will be despatched by the case of 12 x 1 litre screw cap bottles PLUS 1 off x FOC 500ml spray bottle.

Pursan Alcohol Hand Sanitiser Per Case

We’re also putting a limit on orders like supermarkets, with a max of two cases per business customer. This is to ensure even distribution to the people that need it. For larger clients they can still buy in bulk by the pallet from our website.

For single case quantities, please see Pursan Alcohol Hand Sanitiser here

As the Pursan Alcohol Hand Sanitiser product is a liquid and not a gel, it can be used in most spray containers that operate with water. It is an amazing product that leaves the hands feeling fresh and without residue.

Stock is limited and orders will be processed on a first come first serve basis.

Alcohol Hand Sanitiser Update…

The interest in our Pursan Alcohol Sanitiser has been unprecedented.  We know that some suppliers have exploited lack of availability and high demand to justify sky high prices, but we have deliberately taken a different line, consistent with our broader company ethos.  Prices are higher than under normal circumstances because the base cost of raw materials reflects a shortfall in the supply chain. However, we have deliberately applied normal company margins across this range to enable us to supply customers at an as affordable price as possible.  In terms of equipment to dispense alcohol sanitiser in the workplace, we have actually reduced prices on our soap and similar dispensers.  Our pricing and lead times have been generally well received by clients and we appreciate their patience while we have had to confirm lead times on an order by order basis over this exceptional period.

Several clients have queried why we only supply in large quantities and, in fact, we have looked at the logistics of meeting smaller orders.  Unfortunately, this was unrealistic for us as a company.  However, if bulk ordering at first seems prohibitive for your business, there are a number of issues to take into account.

Firstly, the supply environment is changing rapidly.  Demand is so high that raw material supply is difficult to secure including the bottles and spray tops to contain the alcohol sanitiser.  Prices are therefore rising overall, and in our experience, lead times have fluctuated almost daily.  Anticipating longer term requirements and purchasing accordingly might be a helpful strategy therefore.

Secondly, in thinking about locations within a building or workgroup where alcohol hand sanitiser might be needed, it quickly becomes clear that the need is extensive, much broader than washrooms, canteens and reception areas.  Anyone who has recently visited a hospital is likely to have seen sanitiser stations every few yards in corridors, with visitors much more likely to use these. Clearly, in order to deliver this level of protection access to significant quantities of sanitiser gel/liquid is essential.

Over the next months it is likely that access to supplies of sanitiser will improve and related costs reduce.  In the shorter term however, where employers have a duty to protect their staff and customers it is prudent to ensure your own supply of a key component in your health and safety provision.
