Table-top hand sanitiser, gloves & face mask vending machines for smaller businesses and retail…

Safety Point PPE Vending - Face Mask Vending, Hand Sanitiser Vending, Glove Vending Machines

Safety Point has been designed to ensure the smallest footprint possible and with simplicity for the untrained vending operator in mind.  Due to its table-top nature it can be situated virtually anywhere as a plug and play device via requiring minimal day to day fuss or operational management.  The Safety Point machines are perfect for entrances or counter-top sales environments, as well as more traditional locations such as corporate offices and business spaces.

New COVID-19 Coronavirus section of our website now live…

We are pleased to announce a new COVID-19 Coronavirus category (https://www.intelligentvending.co.uk/covid-19-coronavirus/) has been launched on the Intelligent Wholesale website. This is being reviewed and updated regularly to ensure prices and offers are as up-to-date as possible. As with all COVID-19 related products we have supplied so far (the range is extensive and very rarely publicised!), we know that demand is unprecedented. You can therefore rest assured we are reviewing and updating all products added to this new section daily to ensure prices and offers are current and effective.

Our key area of focus via our eCommerce channel so far has been alcohol sanitiser. In our own opinion, Unicorn Hygienics were well ahead of the game with this and one of the first truly UK producers to predict the demand that was coming. While standard alcohol hand sanitiser retail suppliers still had their usual UK stock allocation available for day to day (non-coronavirus) business usage requirements, Unicorn capitalised on their extensive knowledge and experience from previous respiratory viruses in the marketplace. They quickly positioned themselves as a leader in the field, with one of the best hand sanitizing products available for consumers in the UK & Ireland markets.

The product is Pursan, and this already had a registered trademark going back to 2010. From our own experience with hand sanitisers, we strongly believe that their formula cannot be faulted. It had already been tried and tested in the market many years ago and fine-tuned to consumer needs.

Utmost respect must go out to Roger Pannell from the Unicorn group on this. He has always had a great eye for business and he never once took advantage of this crises for personal reward. His aim at every stage was to provide his trusted and loyal distributor partners with a truly world leading product, and a market edge that would help to keep their businesses going, whilst also saving people in the UK. Their Pursan product is truly exceptional and their product has remained at competitive pricing throughout the market fluctuations.

Our own staff at Intelligent Vending and Intelligent Wholesale, plus extended staff families have been using this product since day one of the coronavirus pandemic (and in some cases significantly high and repeated use throughout each day!) without any damage to our hands at all thanks to the added moisturiser and formulation of the product.

We have now extended our COVID-19 range to include the new Sterizen alcohol hand sanisiter & sanitising surface cleansing solution. This has been brought to us via Borg & Overstrom who are a leader in the high-end point of use water coolers and accessories category worldwide. The focus for their new Sterizen solutions is consistent with that of Unicorn Hygienic’s, but their retail offering is focused on smaller, handy, pocket size products that can be carried around by staff.

Their Sterizen 80% alcohol formula hand sanitiser is based on WHO (World Health Organisation) recommendations. It is again a liquid and not a gel, and there is no unpleasant residue left of the hands. It is also great for repeated use and comes in both 150ml and 250ml atomiser spray bottles which are recyclable. Full SDS information and marketing information can be found on our website under the COVID-19 Coronavirus section, and both small cases, and bulk pallet offerings are available to clients with clear timelines outlined online to ensure transparency.

The little sister to the Sterizen alcohol hand sanitiser range is the Borg & Overstrom sanitiser surface solution. This is supplied in a lockable 150ml spray which is also pocket size. This product is NOT for hand use, but it is perfect for surface sanitizing of door handles, light switches, vehicle interiors, control panels, touch screens, shopping trolley handles and so much more. The Sterizen sanitising solution is suitable for anywhere that people touch regularly. Due to the ingredient formulation it is cheaper to produce than high alcohol content hand sanitiser, so it is ideal for any areas that people regularly touch and keeps costs as low as possible in relation to company staff safety. All SDS information is available for both Pursan and Sterizen products online, as well as other important marketing information.

A range of other products will also be listed shortly, but we are posting based on demand in terms of priority. Hand sanitisers are a huge, in demand product in these uncertain times, so it’s only fair they received the first introduction to our new COVID-19 Coronavirus section.

A range of other PPE items for the NHS and government departments are also available via our specialist advisers and personal protective equipment suppliers, so please ask if you have any particular sourcing requirements. For volume buyers such as government departments, healthcare, pharmacies & supermarkets, rest assured our product range is extensive (but all may not be listed online) and it continues to grow for this new category.

Please let us know if you require high volumes of medical 3-ply face masks, surgical 3-ply face masks, Face Fit FFP2 KN95 face masks, Face Fit FFP3 KN99 face masks or surgical gowns. We can supply millions of units at competitive prices with very short lead times direct from specialist manufacturers.

Our global network of trusted and certified factories can produce high quality PPE (personal protective equipment) items with very fast lead times. We also have dedicated cargo planes and logistics available to ensure quality inspections throughout production, speedy customs checks, and rapid delivery to our clients wherever they are located around the world.

….

It is great to see British businesses prosper in hard times and the innovation of UK entrepreneurs flourish. Keep updated of the many products arriving in our COVID-19 Coronavirus portfolio shortly; hand sanitiser has been a life saver and extremely popular with all of our customers with some incredible reviews from clients.

….

Keep safe everyone and watch this space….

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).

New vending options.

We have been busy at Intelligent Vending! Now, on our website we have some exciting news!
