Crouch calls on businesses to make hygiene products
Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch has called on local businesses to start producing hygiene products to help meet the State's demands.
"Unprecedented worldwide demand of much-needed medical and hygiene products means traditional suppliers aren't able to even fill urgent orders in NSW," Mr Crouch said.
"I'm calling on any Central Coast business that has spare capacity, or can adapt their production lines, to become an official supplier for the NSW Government and help fill the gap.
"We all need to play a part in fighting Covid-19 and I would encourage local businesses to consider contributing in this way."
The products that are urgently required are cleaning products, eyewear, gloves, hand sanitiser, handwash soap, masks, paper products and protective clothing.
"Not only will this boost supplies of medical and hygiene products," said Mr Crouch, "it will also help local businesses diversify and keep as many workers in a job as possible."
Mr Crouch urges business owners to register their interest online at www.nsw.gov.au, or by calling the Covid-19 hotline on 13 77 88.
