Mount Gay, Phunkshun Respond to COVID-19 Crisis, Adaptive Partnership Extended + The Matrix

PSIA-AASI Official Suppliers are helping stem the impact of the COVID-19 crisis by helping produce hand sanitizer and face masks.

The Rémy Cointreau Group, parent company of Official Spirit Partner Mount Gay Rum, mobilized to support health organizations. The company is focusing on the delivery of hand sanitizer and masks, and supporting local communities.

In Barbados, Mount Gay Rum Distillery is delivering alcohol to pharmacies fabricating hand sanitizer for hospitals. Eric Vallat, CEO of the Rémy Cointreau Group, said, “It seemed essential for us to embody our values, to show solidarity and mutual aid. It is as close as possible to our markets and our production sites that our teams personally commit to help, to the extent of their human resources and financial capabilities, and for as long as the pandemic requires it.”

Colorado-based Phunkshun Wear launched the One for One program, where for every personal hygiene face covering that’s purchased on (including Pro Offer orders), the brand is giving one to the State of Colorado, who is in turn working with non-profit organizations to distribute masks to essential workers and vulnerable populations.

“We’re utilizing local resources to help with the sewing and some of the component manufacturing,” said Phunkshun CEO Jason Badgely. “We’re in this together.”

Other Official Suppliers are participating in programs like Googles for Doc or donating gloves to first responders. PSIA-AASI Official Automotive Partner Volkswagen rolled out several new efforts to help customers and communities fight the coronavirus.
