LINDAL Group, through its UK subsidiary, has collaborated with Reabrook and Ball Corporation on a new aerosol hand sanitiser and delivered it to key workers.
The companies designed, produced, and filled 25,000 cans of Rainbow hand sanitiser, which were divided equally between them and donated within the local community to hospitals, care homes, schools, charities, and emergency services.
The Rainbow hand sanitisers used Ball’s aluminium aerosol cans, Lindal’s valve and actuator technology and were filled using one of Reabrook’s high-speed filling lines, before being safety checked with leak detection and pressure testing to ensure safety for consumers.
Lindal has now distributed these hand sanitisers within the areas of Leighton, Buzzard, Luton and Milton Keynes, in the UK.
“To combat the impact of COVID-19, a lot of hard work from key workers within the local community has been done to protect the vulnerable, take care of people and to continue society functioning as normal as possible,” said Lindal’s group marketing manager, Kashif Choudhry.
“We are aware of the wonderful job that so many people are doing and with the increasing demand for hand sanitisers in all settings; it has been a pleasure to donate thousands of cans of hand sanitiser to support those who need them most.”
One of the recipients, Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, is the nearest hospital to Lindal’s UK subsidiary in Leighton Buzzard. Isabella Gilmore, charity assistant, said: “Thank you for your kind donation of hand sanitiser for all of us here at Luton and Dunstable Hospital. We really appreciate your support – you are all amazing!”
Angela Herbert, facilities manager at Cedars Upper School and Linslade Academy, which also received a donation, said: “Hand sanitisers have quickly become an essential item for us all, so it’s perfect that we’ve been able to hand these out to all of our staff members.
“The aerosol packs are so much better than a gel and easy to fit in your pocket – thank you so much for the donation!”
Choudhry concluded: “The feedback we have had from the local community has been overwhelming and we are very proud to have worked on this project alongside Ball and Reabrook.”
