“I Have a Hand Sanitizer Dispenser but no Sanitizer—What do I do?”

September 15, 2020 | Medical/Pharmaceutical

Marlin Steel has often heard the question asked during the COVID-19 pandemic: “I have a dispenser but no stand/sanitizer - what do I do?” 

The massive demand of hand sanitizer and stands has resulted in shortages of disinfecting gel hand-sanitizer-dispenserand fluids. This poses a major problem for organizations, schools, and facilities who have invested in hand sanitizer stands to keep employees and students safe - but cannot utilize them due to lack of disinfectant.

Part of this shortage is due to the effect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on international supply chains, which are still rebuilding due to the domino effect the crisis had early on. Traditional outsourcing and reliance on foreign countries, such as China, to fuel hand sanitizer needs will likely continue to lead to shortages. By opting for domestic suppliers, businesses can minimize the effects of the shortages and ensure their hand sanitizer stands are consistently filled with disinfectant. 

What Can You Do If You Have a Dispenser but no Hand Sanitizer or Stand?

If you currently have a dispenser, but no hand sanitizer to fill it with, or a stand to fully distribute the disinfectant, then you may want to consider an American manufacturer. American companies, such as Marlin Steel, are less affected by the strain placed on international supply chains due to COVID-19, and can be transported much faster than foreign manufacturers.

Marlin Steel's infectious disease control solutions can keep your employees safe all through the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about why choosing Marlin Steel to help keep your facility safe is the most reliable and thorough choice.  

Fast Shipping

One of the major consequences of outsourcing infectious disease control equipment was exposed in the beginning months of the COVID-19 crisis when international supply chains began to strain or break entirely. The strain on overseas shipping has made already slow assembly processes, shipping, and customs processing waits even longer. You may not receive your hand sanitizer or stands for weeks - if not longer - if you outsource overseas. 

When buying from American manufacturers, such as Marlin Steel, there is no need for American companies to wait for slow overseas shipping or customs. In fact, some of Marlin’s products can even be shipped same-day as the order, so you can receive your sanitizer and dispensers as soon as possible.
