Big Start helps businesses secure PPE gear as global demand spikes

May 11, 2020

Australian medical supply innovator Big Start is being inundated with orders from around the world as companies seek to protect staff as lockdowns are lifted and businesses get back to work. 

Big Start’s CEO Jack Quigley said companies are securing access to PPE gear to ensure their workers are protected from further outbreaks.

“Companies have a duty of care to their employees, and in these extraordinary times that means supplying them with PPE gear like face masks and gloves so they can do their jobs safely and confidently,” he said.

With more than two million cases and over one hundred thousand deaths, COVID-19 has shuttered economies and locked down millions of people as authorities fight the outbreak.

The key weapon that’s emerged is Personal Protective Equipment – PPE – which Big Start has been shipping in bulk to health workers globally.

But Big Start is also seeing a surge in demand for PPE gear from businesses wanting to protect their workers as they carry on with their jobs or come back to the workplace after a period in lockdown.

“Big Start is ready to help businesses of every kind secure top quality PPE gear for their employees and ensure they have a steady supply chain in place so their stock stays topped up.”

Across Europe, lockdowns are in place as health authorities seek to slow infection rates. However, vital businesses like supermarkets are still open, and workers there need access to PPE gear to ensure they are protected.

Big Start has been utilising its close relationships with top tier manufacturers of PPE equipment to fly bulk orders of crucial items to medical teams in Australia, Italy and the United States.

This end-to-end logistical solution is now available for businesses that need to protect their workforces.

Big Start has exclusive access to PPE supplies including KN95 facemasks, Type II Surgical facemasks, respirators, isolation gowns, boot covers, disposable plastic coveralls and face shields.

Mr Quigley said businesses that want to recover from COVID-19’s disruption  need to secure as much PPE as they can.

“Getting people back to work and making sure they can continue doing their job safely is vital for restoring national economies and for ensuring the world recovers from this disruptive virus,” he said.

“Big Start’s end-to-end logistical expertise is helping companies right around the globe protect their workforces from COVID-19 and make sure they enough supplies to guarantee their services over the long run, stopping any further infections from happening.”
