Coronavirus In Colorado: Parker Company Ramps Up Hand Sanitizer Production To Help
Tuesday, March 31, 2020
As the coronavirus continues to spread, a critical need for health care workers and first responders is hand sanitizer. Currently, a Colorado company that already makes the product is being asked to ramp up production to help the state’s response.
For almost two decades, OraLabs in Parker has mass produced personal hygiene products such as hand sanitizer, lip balm, toothpaste, and more.
Last week, its CEO Gary Schlatter got a call from Noel Ginsburg, who is a point person on Gov. Jared Polis’ newly formed Innovation Response Team Task Force, which will work with the state to secure much-needed supplies and protective equipment for hospitals and state agencies.
