IVE has today announced the launch of ivolve, it’s expanded hygiene and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) offering designed to help businesses return to the workplace safely.
Led by hygiene and health consultant, Shylie Smith, the offering already provides products such as face masks, hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wipes to many of Australia’s largest businesses including Vodafone, Qantas and Diageo.
“We identified an opportunity at the beginning of COVID hitting in March” said Phill Oliver, GM Premiums & Merchandising at IVE. “Our clients, and many critical services including our armed forces, aged care workers and frontline health workers, were desperately needing hygiene and PPE solutions to help keep their people safe.
“By combining our local and offshore sourcing expertise, and integrated logistics services, we could provide a compelling solution for our clients. With all stock stored in our Australian facilities we could quickly support the critical requirements of our customers, particularly when continuity of supply was impacted by their incumbent supply chain. Importantly, all our products have passed global testing requirements”.
Oliver continued “This is essentially how the ivolve offering evolved. As we look ahead, we believe businesses will also need to adapt and evolve to the new environment we find ourselves in and this is where we can help”. A key part of the value that ivolve brings to clients is hygiene specialist Shylie Smith. Smith has over 11 years of experience in the hygiene and health sector with brands like KimberlyClark Professional and BUNZL. Smith will be available for consultations with clients to tailor solutions to meet their specific needs.
“I’m extremely proud to be joining an offering that’s supported some of our most critical services and businesses over such a trying time as the last few months.” said Smith.
“I look forward to helping more people stay safe and return to some semblance of normal life as soon as possible”.
Cliff Brigstocke, CEO of Production & Distribution at IVE said “by pivoting early we’ve managed to get on the front foot and provide something most businesses and critical services are asking for, and will continue to need help with moving forward. In the last few months we’ve sold millions of hygiene and PPE products to these sectors, and this is just the beginning.
“As people look to return to the workplace in some shape or form, they will need to do so safely and we’re here to support them in doing that. We have all stock on the ground here in Australia and it’s ready for immediate delivery”.
