STEVENSVILLE — Since the middle of May, Federal Resources Supply Company, located in the Chesapeake Business Park in Stevensville, was selected by the Defense Logistics Agency to deliver kits of life-saving personal protective equipment to approximately 15,000 nursing homes across the U.S.
Responding to a request from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and in coordination with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, DLA awarded Federal Resources a contract to provide 1.2 million pieces of eye protection, 13.8 million surgical masks, 12.8 million gowns, and 64.4 million pairs of gloves to ensure the safety and well being of America’s seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Federal Resources is honored to be awarded the contract to provide necessary equipment and solutions to the nation’s health care workers,” said Robert McWilliams, Federal Resources president. “Those on the front line of the COVID-19 health crisis are protecting America’s seniors and the loves ones of our nation.
“The logistical challenge of quickly delivering around 15,000 shipments of PPE pales in comparison to the challenges health care workers are facing daily. As the threat of climate makes the jobs of those in the front lines more difficult and dangerous, we are more committed now than ever to supporting their missions and providing the equipment and solutions to keep them safe from harm.”
Federal Resources has partnered with the DLA to secure products and solutions to aid in the COVID-19 response. DLA is the nation’s combat logistics support agency, managing the global supply chain for the military and other federal agencies.
Founded in 1986, Federal Resources is a leading provider of quality products and mission-critical solutions that support the U.S. military, federal government, state/local responders, and international markets.
