Providing innovative delivery solutions and leveraging expertise in cleaning and sanitizing
Sheboygan, Wis. – The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted day-to-day business across the nation and The Vollrath Company and its family of businesses is no exception. The company is focusing on helping restaurants persevere and rethinking items in its offering to aid with safety and sanitation.
Vollrath has been able to support the surge in delivery for chains and small restaurants as stay-at-home takeout orders increase. “Delivery has been a focus for us over the last several years and we are glad to have a selection of products ready to help businesses that are relying on delivery to keep their business alive during the wide-reaching social distancing restrictions,” says Paul Bartelt, president and CEO of The Vollrath Company. Operator-friendly with durable, weather-resistant design, the delivery and transport products provide high performing insulation and warmth at a variety of price points and in different styles.
In addition to the foodservice industry, Vollrath is focused on finding ways to convert existing products to support medical safety and sanitization to help slow the spread of the virus.
“Food preparation requires a high level of sanitation, so we are very familiar with these types of standards. We have started to look at our product offering with a different perspective and have generated ideas like squeeze bottles for bulk hand sanitizer dispensing and mobile cleaning carts that are traditionally used for ice cream equipment that now can serve as useful sanitization stations. These sanitization stations can be used in temporary hospitals, manufacturing locations; really any location that needs the ability wash or sanitize equipment.” The Companion Cart Mobile Cleaning, Sanitizing and Disinfecting System by Stoelting, a division of The Vollrath Company, is perfect for cleaning items in remote areas of any facility that don’t have a water source nearby.
Along with the carts and squeeze bottles, various options of breath guards traditionally used in buffets and serving stations are now being offered to keep retail store personnel safe as they work to serve customers. Vollrath also has a line of medical products including patient care and laboratory supplies to help satisfy the demand of the hospitals and temporary medical facilities.
“Vollrath’s culture has always been about people. Not just those who work for us, but also about the communities and industries we serve. People are counting on us and we take that seriously. We are focused on helping as much as we can during this time of uncertainty. We hope that we are able to provide tools that are useful in the fight against the virus, but also that help support the safety of the people in our communities and the businesses they own,” he added.
