NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J., April 15, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In times of great uncertainty and stretched resources, it takes inspired minds and teamwork to make things happen. Kai’s Organics, a leading manufacturer of USDA organic products, and Capacity LLC, trusted experts in order fulfillment, today announced they have come together to help bring essentials across the country, to the places hit hardest by coronavirus.
As the rising tide of the coronavirus pandemic turns into a flood of requests for essential medical and healthcare products, no area of the United States has been hit harder than New York City. Hand sanitizer is in especially high demand, which is why American entrepreneurs like the owners of Kai’s Organics, based in Santa Rosa, California, decided to pivot their business to this essential item.
The challenge: how to get thousands of packs of this critical product from the other side of the country when supply chains are already stretched to breaking point?
This is where the collaboration with Capacity began, as Tod Stebbins, Director of Operations at Kai’s Organics, reached out for assistance.
Of the initial request, Capacity’s Chief Commercial Officer Noah Sange says: “As soon as Kai’s approached us, we knew Capacity could help make a difference here. Our proximity to NYC and our ability to rapidly set up a new partner with high-volume, sustained bursts of direct-to-consumer orders, made us the perfect distribution platform for what Kai’s wanted to offer. Their pivot to provide essential hand sanitizer was astonishingly fast, and we will move just as quickly to get those items across the country to exactly where they’re needed.”
With a bicoastal operation serving North America and multiple separate buildings across one expansive fulfillment campus in North Brunswick, New Jersey, Capacity is perfectly positioned to get goods across the country at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Kai’s Organics was able to bring its 10 years of experience in organic manufacturing and laboratory quality control to ramp up production of hand sanitizer.
“We went from the idea to producing 300 bottles an hour in less than a week,” says Operations Director, Tod Stebbins. “In the 14 days since we started shipping, we’ve shipped hand sanitizer to 43 stats across the country to a total of 405 different cities along with England, Japan, Canada and Australia.”
Connecting the dots of West coast production and East coast delivery is something Capacity does every day. As a result, these essential items will soon be in the hands of those who need them most. The company is now actively searching for more opportunities to use its considerable capabilities to help.
