INEOS Styrolution dispatches 20,000 face masks to Foshan and Ningbo in support of Coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts
INEOS Styrolution has sent 20,000 single-use face masks to be distributed to communities across local districts of Foshan and Ningbo, in support of China’s response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). These supplies were sourced through INEOS networks within the Asia Pacific region.
On 2 March 2020, 10,000 single-use face masks were dispatched to Sanshui Center of Disease Control in Foshan, as well as to the Ningbo Petrochemical Economic and Technological Development Zone in Ningbo respectively.
The outbreak of Coronavirus had led to a global supply shortage of protective medical equipment such as surgical masks, protective suits, and safety goggles. As China is at the centre of the epidemic, it is in urgent need of these supplies as it battles to control this outbreak.
“Our production plants have been operating in China for many years and have built strong ties with the local authorities where our operations are based”, says Steve Harrington, President Global Styrene Monomer and Asia-Pacific. “In these trying times, we are heartened that our regional networks could be deployed effectively to support the local communities in need.”
