Businesses across Hornsby are being encouraged to join the fight against COVID-19 and start producing much needed medical equipment for NSW.
Member for Hornsby Matt Kean MP said the unprecedented global demand on much needed medical supplies had seen traditional suppliers now unable to fill urgent orders to service NSW.
“Hand sanitiser, hand wash soap, gloves, cleaning products, protective clothing, masks, eyewear and paper products are now in such high demand,” Mr Kean said.
“The NSW Government is now calling on local businesses in Hornsby to convert their production lines to make these products to fill the gap.
The products required urgently include:
- Hand sanitiser
- Handwash soap
- Cleaning products
- Protective clothing
- Paper products
Mr Kean said this is also a great way for businesses who may be seeing a downturn in business due to COVID-19 to adapt and remain strong during these uncertain times.
“This is a great way for business to diversify and keep as many workers in a job as possible.
