COVID-19 face masks & our French partners ‘Antoine Health Care Ltd’

Intelligent Wholesale currently have access to extremely high volumes of CE & FDA compliant 3-ply surgical and FFP2 N95 respiratory face masks with short lead times via a close partner ‘Antoine Health Care Ltd’, a health & FMCG specialist in France.

Antoine Health Care Ltd have worked with the French government and other organisations such as ‘L’Organisation internationale de la Francophonie’, UNAIDS, the Global Fund, as well as many other global Ministries of Health. They are a family business, engaged since 2004 in the health sector for risk prevention, and in distribution within the pharmaceutical networks and FMCG.

Antoine Health Care @ UNAIDS & WHO Antoine Health Care @ The Global Fund

Antoine Health Care Ltd is made up of two companies, with their own offices in the United Kingdom and Mauritius, which serve clients in the European Union and in Africa.  The dynamism of Antoine Health Care Ltd makes it possible to make the link between industry, trade and distribution (pharmaceutical and FMCG) and the directors are highly passionate and driven on all things health related.  With a direct presence on the European and African markets and with close links to government departments and health organisations worldwide, Antoine Health Care provide full turnkey solutions for retail sales, research activities and development in the areas of industrial rehabilitation, vocational training, and distribution activities.

As a result of the unprecedented demand across the world for such products presently, and lack of availability via normal supply chains, Antoine Health Care Ltd have been working for some time to secure alternative volume access to quality products at acceptable and competitive prices, and with short lead times via their factory network.

Antoine Health Care UNAIDS & WHO

Antoine Health Care Ltd have access to both 3-ply surgical masks and FFP2 N95 respiratory masks in high volumes.  These are all high quality and conform to the appropriate standards and certifications.

We have a ‘notional’ allocated amount of units for the UK and Ireland, but orders must be received very quickly to avoid goods going to other countries. This is especially time sensitive at the present time due to the recent announcement by WHO (The World Health Organisation) that they are considering changing their current stance on recommending face masks as a way to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus.  The global pressure for supply of these items is therefore significant.

It is not possible for us to share further information about this opportunity online due to sensitivities regarding this health initiative.  However, the MOQ is 1 million units and we’re working hard to get these to the people in most need.

Please contact us and let us know if you are interested in receiving additional information.

 

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).

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.

Please note that orders continue to be processed on a first come, first serve basis and we will confirm lead times for each order placed asap following receipt.  Please bear with us on this as we are working as quickly as possible, and do not want to mislead our customers with inaccurate information.  We are also supplying this product overseas to European partners.

Keep Calm… We’re still supplying 70% alcohol hand sanitisers!

Our high content 70% alcohol hand sanitizer with moisturiser is still available.  We’ve taken significant orders over the weekend and it’s been a very busy day, but additional production has been made available at the factory due to extremely high demand and to keep lead times as low as possible for clients.

I’m also pleased to confirm that we will soon be supplying bulk 5 litre container versions and smaller hand-held 100ml high alcohol hand gel sanitizer bottles. Watch this space!…

P.S. All soap dispensers have now also been reduced online on our website too, for those who don’t wish to buy the hand alcohol sanitizer in bulk and prefer to provide better hand washing facilities to staff. These can be ordered in lower single unit volumes.

P.P.S. We have also received significant enquiries from our partners in Europe and are happy to quote for shipping via email on an enquiry by enquiry basis.

MRSA, SARS BCNU

The Bactokill Air Steriliser has been designed and developed to destroy airborne bacteria and viruses! It has low running costs, has twin speed fan for versatility and as it works it controls the dwell time of air passing through the chamber and over the UVC lamps. It is during this dwell time that the bacteria, moulds and viruses are virtually eliminated! Goodbye you nasty things, be seeing you! (BCNU!)

The Bactokill is also used in destroying, not masking, stubborn malodours in areas such as nursing homes or changing rooms. The versatile nature of the product allows it to be situated in a variety of locations including hospitals, surgeries, waiting rooms, food preparation areas, hospitality environments, homes and offices. This air steriliser even has a fragrance dispensing feature (optional) which could dramatically improve the hygiene and freshness of a space with a selection of delicate scents. TYVM.
