)-- “The world-wide attention towards preventing the spread of contagious illnesses, cross-contamination and food related sanitation has created an increased demand in disinfectant products around the globe. This heightened awareness has been augmented by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) efforts to contain the H1N1 (swine) flu virus spreading aggressively across multiple nations. Efficient disinfectants are now in higher demand than ever as a result.” E.J. Spidell, President, Global Trade Base
“We are pleased to announce the international market penetration of Medtrol’s Healthcare Division disinfectant product lines in Panama, Central America. These products meet the stringent requirements by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for cleaning, decontaminating, and disinfecting. These products are ideal for home, office, and healthcare use and effectively kill Tuberculosis, Staphylococcus, E.coli, Salmonella, and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV Type 1), MRSA, Hepatitis and other concernable pathogens in contaminated areas.
The demand at the consumer level is also increasing for the individual disinfectant wipes. People are carrying the wipes as a personal item to disinfect their hands, doorknobs, countertops and other places where they can be exposed to contagious illnesses from other people. Many retailers are now making disinfectant wipes available at the point of sale and demand continues to escalate.” Todd Fratt, Vice President, International and Domestic Product Distribution, Global Trade Base.
“Panama has over 3.3 million people and a history of intermediate medical risk for food and waterborne diseases, bacterial contamination, dengue fever and malaria. Disinfecting areas open to the public is a high priority for everyone. We are proud to provide our products where they are needed. Medtrol and Global Trade Base have tailored a program that will meet the growing product demand world-wide with timely production and affordable prices. Now every individual, business, school, health care facility, and retail outlet in over 200 countries can get our products. Our product quality combined with the successful track record and professional approach by Global Trade Base is a partnership destined for international success. We are looking forward to significant international growth”.
