DuPont to supply protective garments to USDA

May '06
Chemicals company DuPont Co said it has been asked to provide the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) with approximately 75,000 DuPont Tychem garments to be worn by USDA workers while handling infected game and poultry.

DuPont Tychem delivers effective protection against a range of chemicals. The garment is worn in a variety of industries -- including environmental cleanup operations, hazardous response and waste management.

"For more than 200 years, DuPont has been working with the US government, providing a range of products, services, and knowledge required to respond to threats of national security," said Dale Outhous, Global Business Director -- DuPont Personal Protection.

"We are proud to once again serve in this role as we prepare for the possibility of avian flu reaching the United States. We remain ready to supply additional protective apparel as may be needed, as well as other innovations such as Virkon S veterinary disinfectant and RelyOn personal disinfectant," he added further.

Fastenal, a Minnesota-based industrial distributor, will deliver the DuPont Tychem garments to locations designated by the USDA.

"With 12 distribution centers, a fleet of over 275 company-owned semi-trucks and trailers and over 1,800 store sites, Fastenal is well-positioned to ensure the safe and timely delivery of the DuPont Tychem garments," said Dale Bartelson, Fastenal's safety and security product manager.
