Richmond, Virginia - Weidmuller Inc. has partnered with Three Crosses Distilling Co. in Powhatan, Virginia to produce hand sanitizer to support organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic. All bottles from the distiller turned sanitizer producer will be donated to help first responders, health, and government organizations.
Weidmuller’s contribution for this partnership was supplying pre-printed industrial adhesive labels (EL 15 & 27) to be applied to the sanitizer bottles. There are two labels, one for the front with Three Crosses Distillery logo and a back-label denoting ingredient. All labels were printed using 5 of Weidmuller’s THM MultiMark thermal printers to meet the current demand of 4,700 labels.
The process for making hand sanitizer requires high proof alcohol that is commonly seen as waste product. The alcohol is then de-natured to prevent consumption. Hydrogen peroxide, vegetable glycerin, aloe and other essential oils are added, and the sanitizer is then mixed and placed in bottles.
Weidmuller will continue to work on a way to extend this opportunity to our distributors and customers that would be interested in supporting their local distilleries who are also producing similar hand sanitizer products.
