Logistics firm Stiller Warehousing and Distribution has secured a deal to store and distribute more than half a million bottles of sanitiser gel per month which are being produced by nearby INEOS.
INEOS launched a new global healthcare firm INEOS Hygienics in July following the launch of its new hand sanitiser plants this summer.
Its first sanitiser production facility in Newton Aycliffe was established in less than ten days and went on to produce millions of bottles of sanitisers free of charge to the NHS and thousands of hospitals.
Stiller has distributed approximately 500 pallets of 250ml hand sanitiser bottles – with each pallet containing between 1,000 and 2,000 bottles depending on size – since April, using Stiller’s extensive national networks.
The firm will also store up to 1,000 pallets of the 250ml bottles at its 22-acre logistics site at Aycliffe Business Park.
Managing director Matthew Stiller said: “It was very rewarding to support the INEOS Hygienics hand sanitiser production facility in Newton Aycliffe from its inception.
