HPV ran dangerously low on PPE of medical grade nitrile gloves due to the high demand on supply chains of gloves across the world. As a result, cases were being reported of health staff lacking sufficient protection in COVID situations.
Westlab Healthcare were able to leverage off existing manufacturer relationships to secure bulk stock for Australia. Westlab worked closely with HPV to fast forward deliveries from Malaysia with the use of 737 Boeing aircraft bringing the PPE to the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic with speed and agility.
Goods were delivered on time and on specification to Australian Federal Government stockpiles and following the success of this arrangement, Westlab have been contracted with ongoing face shields.
