SCHUYLER N.Y.- Wilcor International on Drive-In Road in Schuyler Business Park usually supplies retail stores with items used for camping, fishing, and other outdoor activites, but now they are supplying personal protective equipment.

The company decided with their sourcing capability that Wilcor needed to help local hospitals, nursing homes, emergency squads, and fire departments with PPE and sanitation products.

Shawn Corrigan, the vice president of purchasing for Wilcor International says the company is helping more than just those listed above.

"We (Wilcor) have to help our customers in the B to B (Business to Business) industry, keep their industry safe, and then we have to help the consumer be safe." said Corrigan. "The whole thing just kept expanding on what you need to do. We looked at this is not a profit center, and it's not going to be a profit center, it's a help."

Corrigan said the PPE products like masks, hand sanitizer, and face sheilds are being distributed not only to hospitals and first responders, but also will be sold to convienience stores, grocery stores, hardware stores, and general stores that are open.
