Lubrication Specialties Inc., manufacturer of engine oils and additives under the brand Hot Shot’s Secret, is making alcohol-based hand sanitizer at its Mt Gilead, Ohio, manufacturing facility to assist with preventive care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Last week, LSI began offering 4 oz. bottles of Hot Shot’s Secret hand sanitizer for free to their local hospital and healthcare workers, nursing homes and to truckers transporting essential supplies,” the company said in a statement issued April 15.
The company reported “an overwhelming response from businesses and individuals seeking to also purchase hand sanitizer. In response, LSI has ramped-up production to sell hand sanitizer to businesses and individuals in larger bottles and quantities including bulk under the company’s LSI Chemical brand.”
LSI Chemical hand sanitizer is now available for purchase in multiple bottle sizes including 16-ounce, 32-ounce, 64-ounce, 1-gallon, 5-gallon, and bulk sizes including 55-gallon and 330-gallon, the company said. Using a formulation recommended by the World Health Organization, the formulas are 80% alcohol by volume, the company said. The hand sanitizer is a topical, non-sterile solution packaged with a non-dispensing cap.
“Recognizing Lubrication Specialties has both the means and ability to acquire raw materials to produce hand sanitizer, the decision for production was immediate,” said Chris Gabrelcik, founder of LSI. “Because it has been largely unavailable since the outbreak of the Coronavirus strain Covid-19, our original thought was to produce it for the brave healthcare workers and truckers keeping supplies moving through our country. Immediately after our announcement, we heard from customers across the country requesting to purchase it to keep their employees and families safe. It is rewarding to know our company is in some small way helping to stem the spread of the virus.”
LSI Brand Marketing Specialist Eric Trimble, said, “As long as we are able to source raw materials, and as long as there is a need for hand sanitizer on a global basis, we will continue to produce, bottle and offer this much-needed product through our website or by calling 800-341-6516.” For more information click here.
