RV PRO SPECIAL SECTION July 2020 • RV PRO • 49 Life Industries Donates Sanitizer Life Industries Corp. of North Charleston, S.C., a supplier of maintenance products for the RV industry, pitched in to help its community during the coronavirus outbreak by providing sanitizing solution. "As we were seeing store shelves emptying of any type of sanitizer products, we felt that we could help fill the hole left in the supply chain by providing this non-alcohol based sanitizer," says Life Industries President Grace Schmidt. To lend a hand, Life Industries increased its production of sanitizing solution and has made the product available in various sizes for use for the general public, as well as for health care professionals. A solution of benzalkonium chloride (BZK) and water allows the product to be safe for use on skin and surfaces, and is a common ingredient used in most antibacterial wipes and soaps. "We felt compelled to help in any way possible and since we already have the equipment to blend, bottle, package and ship, we switched gears, put on hold our regular pro- duction of marine, aviation and RV maintenance products, so we can focus entirely on providing this sanitizer that we had been manufacturing for private label for many years," says Schmidt. Vomela Distributes Face Shields Vomela Specialty Co., a supplier of graphic products for the RV industry, announced the company was building 75,000 face shields a day in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The company continues to provide graphics for essential businesses, including grocery stores, pharmacies, banks and health care facilities, however, the group wanted to do more. "Our events, exhibits and OEM business has slowed considerably. However, those groups are now fully engaged in designing and producing products in response to the COVID-19 crisis," says Vomela CEO and President Mark Auth. "This includes face shields, pop-up medical tents, cots, drive-through testing stations, pick-up and curb-side pick-up signage, as well as sneeze guards and social distancing floor graphics". The products are being produced in 10 dif- ferent locations across the country and distrib- uted to customers across the country.
