HydroHoist Boat Lifts, a manufacturer of marine equipment, announced its subsidiary RotoMoldUSA has been contracted by Ongweoweh Corporation, of Ithaca, N.Y., to produce critical medical material handling equipment.
RotoMoldUSA will expand the focus of its rotational molding facilities to manufacture U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved plastic pallets for shipping medical supplies nationwide, while still manufacturing boat lift tanks to keep up with continued demand.
The plastic pallets are re-useable, due to the smooth surface which lessens the transmission of bacteria and viruses, are non-porous, and easy to sanitize.
“In this time of great need, many companies within the boating industry have the power to help,” said HydroHoist CEO Mick Webber in a statement. “Our facilities can easily produce large quantities of products that are necessary in the fight against the spread of Coronavirus. While we are very proud of the quality and innovative design of our boat lifts, we are even more proud to be part of the effort to help the greater good.”
