Global Industrial and NAW donate PPE to small and mid-sized cities

Global Industrial announced that it has partnered with The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) to support the National League of Cities.

Together, they are providing small and mid-sized cities with needed supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) to boost local vaccination rates, reopen city buildings and community centers, and protect teachers and students returning to classroom instruction.

Global Industrial is providing Albany, East Point and Union City, Georgia, with more than 30,000 units of sanitizer and masks to support local efforts and help these communities get back to normal. The company has a close connection to the state of Georgia, with a distribution center located in Buford.

"Throughout the pandemic, Global Industrial has been there for its customers and to assist local community initiatives. We are proud to be a member of NAW and honored to support their partnership with the NLC, who has provided the necessary infrastructure and relationships to make this mission possible," said Barry Litwin, CEO of Systemax.

NAW CEO Eric Hoplin said, "We have seen a tremendous response from our membership in support of our various pandemic and community-based initiatives. I would like to thank Global Industrial for their generosity which will have a direct impact on these communities."
