Otis Technology has partnered with Saint Lawrence Spirits to make, bottle and distribute hand sanitizer to first responders helping in the fight against COVID-19. Additionally, Otis converted its facilities to immediately begin manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE), such as face shields, facemasks and shoe covers.

“We’d been following the news closely in order to stay up-to-date on the virus and ensure the safety of our employees. We made the decision to temporarily cut our staff, in order to keep them at home safe, and to help flatten the curve. This decision was made just hours before governor Cuomo announced a mandated workforce reduction,” states Larry Williams, CEO for Otis Technology.

“We also began immediately asking ourselves ‘how can we help?’ Otis is a state-of-the art facility built on innovation. We have a dedicated research and development facility that can investigate and tackle new projects, and they took the task of PPE by storm. I applaud my entire team’s effortsworking around the clock to get up and running,” continues Williams.

Otis Technology has thus far donated hand sanitizer and eye shields to several localities in need, namely Crouse Hospital (Syracuse, NY), Lewis County Emergency Management, and a donation to Oswego County Emergency Management was pending as of Friday. These initial donations are in close proximity to Otis’ headquarters and research & development facilities, located in Lewis and Oswego counties respectively. A portion of hand sanitizer and PPE will continue to be donated to first responders and hospitals in need.
