Sealed Air Expands Strategic Distribution Partnership with Surface Medical for CleanPatch® Brand to Canada
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – May 1 2017 – Sealed Air’s (NYSE: SEE) Diversey Care division today announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership to exclusively distribute the CleanPatch® branded product line in Canada through Sealed Air’s Diversey Care (“Diversey”) business. CleanPatch is a first-in-class medical surface repair technology that restores damaged hospital mattress covers to an intact and hygienic state.
As part of the multi-year agreement, Diversey will lead the sales, marketing and distribution activities of CleanPatch products in the Canadian healthcare market. Diversey’s leadership position in this market will help expand CleanPatch into long term care and greatly increase exposure in the acute care space.
”CleanPatch can help healthcare facilities with patient safety, cost and compliance. Sealed Air Diversey Care sees this innovative solution as a great complement to our infection prevention offering, which helps our customers create safer and more satisfying environments of care,” said Carolyn Cooke, Vice President of Healthcare- North America, Diversey Care.
Studies show that damaged surfaces in healthcare facilities cannot be properly disinfected and therefore pose a risk of cross-contamination to patients. Already adopted by hundreds of leading Canadian healthcare facilities, CleanPatch provides the unique benefit of enhancing patient safety while directly reducing healthcare costs.
Surface Medical Vice President of Business Development, Tony Abboud, states, “Diversey has been a great partner in the United States, developing a robust distribution network while increasing educational awareness of CleanPatch through their deep relationships with Infection Prevention and Environmental Services. Expanding our relationship to include Canada is a natural progression in our partnership.”
