Oldcastle APG packaging business unit goes from sand to sanitizer

Techniseal Hand Sanitizer was first distributed to Oldcastle APG facilities across the U.S. and Canada—ahead of the dealer and retail launch.

The Oldcastle APG division specializing in paver jointing sand and concrete hardscape unit surface treatments has added a medical-grade sanitizer aimed at supporting the industry and trade professionals during the current pandemic and beyond. Techniseal Hand Sanitizer abides World Health Organization-recommended guidelines for handrub formulas and is manufactured according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations. With 75 percent alcohol content, it quickly rids hands of germs, bacteria and viruses in the workplace, public spaces or at home. The product is shipped in 5-gal. boxes, their built-in lockable dispensers allowing for easy use at sanitary checkpoints or mess-free filling and refilling of smaller-scale containers.

“The pandemic has brought on many challenges for manufacturers and the supply chain. Demand for hand sanitizers continues to grow, and we recognize the need to keep our own employees and other trade professionals healthy and safe while on the job,” says Techniseal Vice President and General Manager Sylvain Dulude. “We are excited to offer retailers, dealers and distributors a product that utilizes a WHO-compliant formula and supports those in our industry that need access to products that help keep them safe and moving business forward.” — www.techniseal.com
