Cardiff City Council were looking to source hand sanitiser stations to be located in high usage areas across the City for the protection against covid-19. The unit needed to be fully secure with a lockable door, robust, weatherproof and provide large storage of hand sanitiser.

The Council had not had a requirement for hand sanitiser before the pandemic, they used the NPS Cleaning and Janitorial Materials and Washroom Services framework as it provided them with a quick and compliant route to market.

Customer benefits

As there was not currently a product on the market that met all of their urgent needs, the Council contacted the framework suppliers with details of exactly what they required. As a result, a bespoke hand sanitiser station was designed and manufactured in Wales to meet their requirements by Conwy based supplier, Chemsol.
