Things are finally starting to return to normal after quite a strict lock-down regime to halt the spread of COVID-19. At OTTO we have been pretty busy looking after those who looked after the rest of us, the front line heroes. We closed our trade counters and immediately put in place safety measures at all of our distribution and storage locations to protect our staff and customers. Despite the lifeless look on the outside, we were busy indoors, fulfilling orders. Essential local deliveries were still maintained by a skeleton fleet observing high sanitation standards and infection prevention protocols with country-wide serviced by our usual logistics partners. Our warehouse staff and drivers are all provided with PPE to ensure that the only thing we delivered was quality automotive parts. We got the job done and we know that many people were helped during the lock-down.
With phase 1 of the lock-down lifting process under way we now invite you back in to use our trade counters as before. We have arranged all of our shared spaces behind the counter to mitigate infection risks across our staff, the guys you need when you get here. The trade counter space has been isolated to the extent possible with collection areas for goods and ample separation space between you the customers and between customers and OTTO staff. We observe the highest standards to protect everybody from infection so you need only concern yourself with the usual high quality automotive parts and accessories when you visit.
Whether you visit our trade counter, our web-shop or are a regular trade customer with daily deliveries make sure to ask about the range of PPE that we keep in stock. We hold large volumes of Polyco® Healthcare gloves. These are well known as the best in market for quality and price whether you require a light duty blue nitrile glove for infection control or the hardest wearing Orange “Bodyguard” work gloves for hand protection. We also stock the brand new Hengst facemask which complies with the very stringent EN14683 Class II. In what has been quite an engineering tour de force, Hengst have gone from zero to full production of a medically certified facemask in only a number of weeks. This, while it seems impressive confirms to us in OTTO just how competent the engineering skill and tradition of Hengst is. We have visited the Münster HQ and manufacturing plant on several occasions, each time only to find new awards and recognition in the trophy cabinet for engineering design, ingenuity and environmental protection technology. These guys make the best quality filtration products with the finest materials and they ought to as they invent the technology. You should read our feature on their engineering pedigree HERE for more insight.
Demand for these masks is high but we have secured large volumes. Please call for details and to order in advance to ensure you have the PPE you and your employees need in your garage or workshop.
Full production has commenced in Münster initially at 10,000 facemasks per day but due to overwhelming demand for high quality product, compliant with all relevant standards and produced by a reliable local supplier, 100,000 pieces per day is looking likely.
