PRADCO Outdoor Brands is giving a helping hand during this trying time. The leading manufacturer and marketer of fishing and hunting brands and products, is now helping those in need during this COVID-19 pandemic.
The company is making resources that is presently helping three states, including two in the South. The resources are going to be used in Alabama, Arkansas, and Oklahoma with medical equipment.
The engineers for the company’s fishing brand are donating items to hospitals, who are on the front lines of the COVID-19 fight. In addition, additional resources will be donated to clinics and nursing homes.
Items include face masks, frames, and hand sanitizer. The frames, according to the press release, are ‘molded out of XT plastic material, while the face shields are being formed out of plastic sheets.’
The hand sanitizer is created with 75% isopropyl alcoholic antiseptic, which is being bottled by the YUM bait attractant line. The hand sanitizer will come in 50-count boxes.
The BOOYAH frames will come in 20 frames per box. The face shields will come in 40 shields per box.
“I’m so proud of our employees for quickly figuring out how to get these needed items into production,” Bruce Stanton, PRADCO Fishing’s Vice President and General Manager, said. “There is a heart to serve here, and we’ve had so many folks give time and effort to this undertaking. There is something to be said for having the entire organization from top to bottom under one roof. We control most aspects of our manufacturing processes, so when it’s time to go, we can go in a hurry. It definitely feels good to be able to do something good right now.”
PRADCO Hunting is also doing their part. Bart Stephens, the Vice President and General Manager, said that his brand will be making 50,000 face masks, which will be given to locations in the Birmingham, Alabama area.
Stanton is asking for more material, especially to make more hand sanitizer, so that PRADCO Fishing can make more.
“Right now, isopropyl is in high demand and short supply. If we can get more drums of it, we can make more hand sanitizer to give away,” Stanton said. “We are also in need of 4 oz. or 6 oz. pump spray bottles. If anyone wants to do some good and make donations of these items, they can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
