 PUdaily, Shanghai--Chemical and ingredient distributor Univar Solutions has teamed up with UK-based specialty chemicals maker INEOS for the Hands On! campaign to address shortages in hand sanitiser products across Europe.

    INEOS has in the past worked with Univar Solutions as a distribution partner for its solvents in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) markets.

    Recently, INEOS founder and chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe committed to constructing a hand sanitiser factory in the UK within ten days to produce and donate one million bottles every month to help address the shortage in Europe.

    Univar Solutions Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific president Nick Powell said: “Univar Solutions is a purpose driven and values based company. Our core values include always being serious about safety and a place where people matter, along with being valuable to others and doing what we say, so together we win.

   “We are pleased to join the INEOS Hands On! campaign and do our duty as a responsible company.”

    The Univar Solutions team in the UK is utilising the capabilities of its Middlesbrough-based Homecare & Industrial Cleaning Solutions Centre to offer technical and formulation advice.

    The firm’s team at the Cadishead production facility is offering bottling, warehousing and logistics support to meet the commitment made to the UK National Health Service. Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

    It expects to make its first deliveries today.

    INEOS Enterprises CEO Ashley Reed said: “There is a critical shortage of hand sanitisers across Europe. Our goal is to quickly supply those on the medical and care front lines.  We will also create a ‘pocket’ version for personal use for people in the UK and Europe.

   “Univar Solutions has been instrumental in helping us meet our pledge to the UK National Health Service by providing bottles, a manufacturing line, logistics support, and formulation advice. We are now looking to replicate this project in Germany, France and other European countries. Hospitals and clinics across Europe can place orders via www.ineoshandgel.com for hand sanitiser gels.”
