In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and current market shortages, Novocol recently obtained a license from Health Canada to manufacture Isopropyl Alcohol 75% Hand Sanitizer to support our local community and healthcare organizations. In just a few weeks, our agile team was able to repurpose equipment and facilities to begin small batch production.
Our first batch was hand delivered by John Sirna, Site Director at Novocol Pharma, to Greg Durocher, President and CEO, at the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber supports local businesses as a source for PPE Supplies necessary to safely resume their operations.
Novocol is also pleased to have made a donation of hand sanitizer to the local Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
We are grateful for our dedicated production and engineering colleagues who worked tirelessly to ramp up production. We are also thankful to our key suppliers such as A&C who expedited delivery of raw materials in short supply.
