Welsh Distillers Penderyn contributes to fight against Coronavirus
Press Release 17th April 2020
As a result of the demand for hand sanitiser gels and liquids during the current Coronavirus pandemic, Penderyn is now producing hand sanitiser liquid with an 80% alcohol strength.
The company was keen to help in these very challenging times and is producing thousands of litres of hand sanitiser on a weekly basis with the first batch due in NHS hospitals and centres this month through partner company, Lovair Ltd.
Welsh Government Economy, Transport and North Wales Minister, Ken Skates said:
“Penderyn is a fantastic example of a business stepping up and adapting the way it works to support our efforts in beating Coronavirus. Our NHS stars are performing lifesaving acts of heroism each and every day and as Welsh Government working together with businesses such as Penderyn, we are doing all that we can to protect our health service and provide them with what they need. I thank Penderyn for their innovative thinking and encourage more firms throughout Wales to follow their example. If you can and are able to change your way of working to develop products and devices to help beat Coronavirus then we want to hear from you.”
The Penderyn Hand Sanitiser is made according to a widely accepted formulation from the WHO (World Health Organisation) and has been approved for use by the NHS in Wales. All Penderyn staff will be issued with bottles and an allocation has already been made available to a selected range of nominated local charities.
Penderyn’s CEO, Stephen Davies, said:
“We never imagined that our we would produce anything other than spirit drinks, and we are very pleased that most of the sanitising products will be used by the NHS in Wales.”
