The product is a unique, pull door handle, which automatically dispenses sanitizing hand gel to the user. West Lothian based Guthries have secured the Contract for Scotland, allowing them to manage all Scottish based accounts on behalf of Pure Hold Ltd., a Hampshire based company, established initially to develop the Pure Hold Hygiene Handle and help improve hand hygiene compliance in hospitals.

“We appointed Guthries due to their experience as they are one of the largest independent distributors of health and safety equipment and facilities supplies in Scotland. Also, PureHold required a dedicated and reliable Scottish distributor that can attend site, check the handles are working as they should and offer the level of after sales care our English customers receive” Matthew Roberts – Pure Hold Ltd.

Now expanding into the food-processing sector and beyond, the Hygiene Handles have been designed to reduce the spread of pathogens across numerous industries. Pure Hold has secured Guthries to supply the sanitizing hand gel refills and better service their product in Scotland, ensuring ongoing functionality.

“As a growing Scottish business, we are thrilled to have secured the PureHold contract for Scotland. Our work within the Food and Drink sector has proved to offer an invaluable insight into the importance of this revolutionary product” Cynthia Guthrie, Joint Managing Director – Guthries.

Guthries, one of the largest independent distributors of Health and Safety and facilities supplies in Scotland, are already well established within the Food and Drink sector. Certified in BRC Global Standard in Storage & Distribution and ISO 9001:2008, Guthries have a very strong quality management system and a high level of customer satisfaction within their existing customer base.
