City of Davenport officials are thanking a long-time business in the city after a need for hand sanitizer was met.
The city said in a Facebook post that Industrial Technology Corporation jumped into action after first responders needed hand sanitizer. "Shows its (Industrial Technology Corporation) innovation and ability to solve a COVID-19 problem for the Davenport Fire Department and the Davenport Police Department."
"Industrial Technology Corporation is a 10-employee chemical formulation company that is best known for its car and truck soaps," city officials said in the post. "The fire department, a long-time customer, learned the company had made a “hand cleaner” that used isopropyl alcohol and met CDC and WHO guidelines for another customer."
Industrial Technology Corporation president Mark Johnson said word spread quickly that their company could help. “Then I had three firefighters standing in my front office."
Officials said they were able to make product for the Davenport fire and police departments, along with making some for the Bettendorf Fire Department and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
