Stoltz One Granted Essential Services Permit by Government to Supply PPE for Corona Virus (Covid-19) Pandemic


Stoltz One, a Cape Town-based company, has announced that it has been granted a permit to operate during South Africa’s 21-day national lockdown in a bid to supply the essential services sector with personal protective equipment (PPE), which is in high demand around the world.

South Africa’s latest coronavirus figures show a total of 1326 recorded cases of infection with 3 deaths. In impacted countries, coronavirus is placing medical care facilities under immense strain due to rising infection numbers.

To strengthen the South African response to this global pandemic, Stoltz One can supply disposable PPE products like 3-ply masks, N95 masks, powder-free surgical gloves and medical protective coveralls, as well as other necessary equipment such as COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Devices, non-contact forehead thermometers, mechanical ventilators and hand sanitisers with a 75% ethyl alcohol content.

Leon Stoltz, CEO of Stoltz One, says, “With thousands of COVID-19 tests being done and the number of confirmed coronavirus cases rising daily, PPE is running in short supply due to use not only by medical staff but also those working in places like grocery stores, petrol stations and pharmacies, who are critical to the running of the country during this difficult time.”

“As expected, there is increased demand globally for PPE but despite extended lead times, our employees are dedicated to working during this national lockdown period, so we are confident that we can fulfil orders. We are in close contact with suppliers to ensure that stock is available for continued supply,” continued Stoltz.

Stoltz states that current capacity for face mask production is 10 million units per week, with shipping and delivery dependent on order volumes.

Face masks are the primary item in demand, so bulk orders are recommended with orders made as soon as possible to prevent any delays.

All shipments will be air-freighted and buyers will need to arrange with customs for clearance.
