U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Selects ADG to Provide Nitrile Gloves
AirBoss Defense Group (ADG), the global leader in survivability for the assured mobility and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) communities is announcing that it has been awarded a contract valued at up to $576 million by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) – Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), for nitrile rubber gloves. The contract consists of an initial order expected to be worth up to $288 million, with an equivalent follow-on option that HHS may exercise later in 2021 for an additional $288 million. This award builds upon ADG’s successful history of providing protective and survivability solutions to the Federal government.
ADG has supported the CBRNE and PPE needs of the Federal government for more than two decades and continues to actively assist the national strategy for pandemic preparedness to build a stable, secure, and resilient supply chain for high-quality PPE.
Nitrile gloves are in continuous demand by many agencies within the Federal government. The gloves to be provided by ADG are for nonsurgical purposes, for use in hospitals and other health care settings. The delivery timeline for this contract acknowledges ADG’s ability to quickly respond to the needs of the Federal government and the need to provide inventory for ASPR’s Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). This contract will provide nitrile gloves for the SNS to supplement state and local supplies, as needed, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and for future health emergencies.
“ADG is pleased to again partner with HHS to provide critical supplies when American first responders and frontline medical workers need it the most. HHS selected ADG, as we have proven time and again that our company can quickly and efficiently meet the most pressing demands for survivability solutions. This award will ensure that our government partners are immediately provided with best in class PPE and we look forward to providing additional solutions in the future,” said Patrick Callahan, ADG’s CEO.
This contract is yet another acknowledgement that ADG is the leading domestic supplier of survivability and protective solutions. Over the past 12 months, ADG has delivered a total of 150,000 proprietary powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) systems, over 3.6 million PAPR filters, and accessories including protective hoods on time and on budget to HHS, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA). ADG solutions are also utilized by the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S Department of State, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
