S2S Global, Premier’s direct sourcing subsidiary, has donated more than 2,200 cases of vital medical products for Ukraine.
Via United Help Ukraine, S2S Global has provided 52 pallets, or two 53-foot trailers, of supplies including exam gloves, isolation gowns and surgical masks – bandages, tourniquets, stethoscopes and more.
“We have some Ukrainian employees that rose their hands and said – we need to champion this cause,” said Colin Bain, President of Direct Sourcing at Premier. “S2S Global and Premier are in a position to help – we have the manufacturing and supply chain expertise and the network to do so. I’m really proud of our employees who have led this effort.”
"Many western countries don't have typical distribution traditional channels to get into Ukraine, and especially with airports being destroyed, customs being difficult to get through," said Lillia Taschuk, Regional Sales Manager at S2S Global. "We've had to work very closely with our trusted partners at United Help Ukraine and Ukraine Express to make sure that we are able to get the product successfully into Ukraine."
S2S Global and Premier are committed to improving the health of communities. And we feel fortunate to have been able to create trusted relationships that we can utilize to assist the people of Ukraine.
