Hand sanitiser supplies shored up by #surreyheroes

4000 litres of hand sanitiser are being delivered to acute hospitals as well as GP practices across Surrey, thanks to the quick thinking of Guildford businessman David Lubbock.

There has been a national shortage of hand sanitiser since the outbreak of COVID-19 and it took no time at all for David, CEO of local business Solventis, to swing into action and start producing hand sanitiser to donate to front line local NHS services.

Solventis, a chemical and solvent supplier, based in Guildford, is experienced in supplying a key ingredient used to make hand sanitiser, however the company does not usually produce the final product. In response to huge demand, David contacted an experienced manufacturer, Cleenol, to start producing the hand sanitiser themselves. Each GP practice will receive 4 x 5L bottles and each hospital will receive 20 x 5L bottles.

Stepping up too is Paul Martin, CEO of Kelly’s Storage, Guildford who has offered to provide free deliveries to all GP practices and acute hospitals across Surrey and to solve any hand sanitiser storage issues.

Together, David, Paul and their staff are all doing their bit to support the NHS services in Surrey Heartlands and that’s why we think they are #surreyheroes.
