Seqens PCI distributes much-needed hand sanitizer to local first responders in Newburyport and Stoneham

API Manufacturing and Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

We donated hand sanitizer to the Fire and Police Departments in Newburyport, where we’re headquartered, and Stoneham, where a number of our employees like.

As part of our efforts to fight COVID-19, we donated 10 gallons each of company-produced hand sanitizer to the police and fire departments in Newburyport and in Stoneham. We’re also planning to distribute its hand sanitizer to other first responders in the area.

According to Ed Price, “The donation is to thank first responders for what they do at this especially critical time for our communities, and the Newburyport fire and police departments in particular, for what they do all year round. Knowing there’s a shortage in the communities where we work and live, we decided to use some of our manufacturing capacity to produce and donate hand sanitizer to first responders. We’re also providing hand sanitizer for our employees for their families, too.”

Newburyport’s fire and police departments each received 10 gallons of hand sanitizer from Seqens PCI as a thank you for the work they do and to support local communities. The hand sanitizer was produced at the company’s plant in Newburyport.

Stoneham’s fire chief, Matt Grafton, and police chief, James McIntyre, received 10 gallons each of much-needed hand sanitizer for their departments from Seqens PCI as a thank you for the work they do and to support local communities. The hand sanitizer was produced at the company’s plant in Newburyport.
