Optimas Solutions, a global industrial manufacturer, distributor and service provider, opened a 30,000-square-foot facility in St. Louis, Missouri. The location will handle distribution of personal protective equipment and maintenance, repair and operations.
“The goal of this strategy is to be laser focused on those products that are in urgent demand by our customers,” said Marc Strandquist, President of the Americas for Optimas Solution. “We’ve listened to and learned that our customers don’t necessarily need full-line distribution right now, but instead need Optimas to meet their needs for common items in a dedicated, efficient manner. Our goal is to simplify product selection and quickly deliver what our customers need most at the best value possible,” he added.
According to company officials, Safety Products will focus on personal protection and sanitation products to protect individuals in the workplace. Face masks, sanitizers, cleaning products, hearing protection, hand protection, and body coverings will be the basis of this offering.
“A key pillar of our Show Me Strong Recovery Plan is expanding Missouri’s PPE reserves, which includes localizing the supply chain,” Governor Mike Parson said. “We are thrilled to work with Optimas Solutions and support its new nationwide distribution hub in St. Louis, which will be a huge asset not only to Missouri but the entire United States.”
