Equip Fulfillment, Greenville, SC-based uniform and supply company, is offering pre-packaged personal protection equipment (PPE) at bulk pricing, primarily focused on those serving within the transportation industry with duties that places them on the frontline during the global pandemic, COVID-19. Equip is providing PPE both for its team and clients.

Prior to the pandemic, Equip filled orders for items such as branded apparel, hand trucks, and furniture pads. Today, the top priority for the company is PPE. Despite nation-wide shortages, Equip Fulfillment worked diligently to provide access to hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, shoe coverings, as well as 2 million KN95 masks, the company said in a press release.

"It only made sense to acclimate our services given our company's purpose," says Brian Hoggard, director of Business Development for Equip Fulfillment. "We provide our clients with easy access to supplies while eliminating the expense associated with managing local inventories."

"Providing PPE to the essential work force of various client companies quickly took precedence over all other supply needs. After all, what good is a shoulder-dolly if you cannot protect the people using them in the customers home?" stated Alex Baigis, director of Operations for Equip.

During this time, Equip Fulfillment has also provided a long-term solution to the face mask shortage by partnering with a third-party manufacturer, to develop reusable masks with built-in filtration system. The masks are designed for optimal comfort and can also be customised with brand logo and colours.
