Bloomington, California-based RPP Products, a national privately held manufacturer and distributor of automotive oil and additives to the convenience and grocery channels, shifted production to make in excess of 20,000 gallons of FDA-approved hand sanitizer daily, for as long as it’s needed. The company continues to ramp up its production capacity by tens of thousands of gallons per day to fight the coronavirus.
With inventories dangerously low, or completely out of stock, the current lack of hand sanitizer is impacting the potential health and safety of millions of Americans during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
RPP Products CEO Eric Zwigart is focused on sales to major national brands and has committed a portion of those sales to fund donations of hand sanitizer to tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations like homeless shelters, food banks and other vital community service organizations.
“Throughout history, private American businesses have stepped up to fulfill emergency needs during times of crisis, and it is in this spirit that our company quickly pivoted to hand sanitizer production,” said Zwigart. “I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to create in such a short amount of time, and the positive impact it will have on my fellow Americans during this crisis.”
RPP Products has branded its hand sanitizer Premier Pure, which is FDA-approved, bottled in the USA and available in a typical 2 oz. size, but also 32 oz. and 67.6 oz. family sizes, which last longer and are more convenient. The only company providing a family size hand sanitizer, RPP Products suggests taking the bottle cap off and adding any household sprayer to the top of the bottle for convenient and thorough hand sanitizing. Premier Plus may kill up to 99.9 percent of the most common germs and helps reduce bacteria on the skin.
