Some feel-good news to end the long work week.


As the United States continues to fight the global health and economic crisis of COVID-19, one South Florida trenchless company is stepping up to help its community by converting one of its manufacturing facilities to make hand sanitizer — an item that is in short supply across the country.

Epoxytec, a brand of Epoxytec International that produces spray-applied trenchless rehab coatings, has quickly retrofitted its south Florida facility and will be producing hand sanitizer for the community, mostly first responders, police department, fire departments, etc. Epoxytec is headquartered in Hollywood, Florida.


The turnaround has been quick — about five days — but the coatings company received its FDA labeler number this week and expects to the product to hit the market on Monday, March 30. The response, the company says has been tremendous.


Kudos to Epoxytec for stepping up during this countrywide shortage of supplies for our first responders, who are in dire need of many things, including hand sanitizer to help keep them safe while battling the front lines of COVID-19.
