Bostik Australia is committed to keep our employees, their families and the broader community safe during this unprecedented crisis of COVID-19.
As a business that has traditionally manufactured adhesive products for the home, office, school, hardware, construction and industry, we have been deploying significant resource to ensure we meet the developing needs of a community that has backed and supported us for over 100 years in Australia.
Our R&D and operations teams have listened and responded to the requirements of the state and federal bodies who have been seeking business support to ensure the protection of our community. In an effort to face this crisis together, our production facilities in Australia are now scaling up production of hand sanitiser.
To our healthcare professionals who are showing tremendous courage, resilience and bravery protecting us each day, we endeavor to play our small part in protecting them with sanitation products.
Bostik Australia will shortly assist in providing hand sanitiser product to hospitals and healthcare facilities across Australia, keeping our community heroes safe during these challenging times. Our hospital grade antibacterial hand sanitisers are currently undergoing the necessary Australian Government Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approvals.
The sanitiser will also be available to the public via our major grocery and retail distribution partners nationally and we will continue to engage with Local, State and Federal healthcare bodies and associations to ensure adequate supply. In addition, we are providing support to the Australian construction sector for on-site sanitation requirements
Bostik Australia Managing Director, Grant Prosser, says:
“During this unprecedented crisis we are deploying all means possible to support the broader collective community efforts in the supply of sanitation products into Australian homes, work spaces and healthcare facilities.
Our healthcare heroes at the frontline of our defense are showing tremendous resilience each day and we will do our utmost to play our small part in keeping them safe.
Our production facilities are now ready to commence full production of hand sanitiser and we will continue to deploy all means necessary to ensure we support the ongoing community requirements.
I’m incredibly proud of our team and we will be in this for as long as is required to ensure we return to the Australian society we love and cherish.”
