In an effort to provide assistance during the worsening COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in one of the USA’s the hardest-hit areas, Kodak has entered into an agreement with New York State to supply Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) to aid in the production of “NYS Clean” hand sanitizer for use primarily in the city of New York and surrounding areas. To support the state’s production of hand sanitizer – available to residents for free and distributed to impacted communities as well as state agencies such as schools and the MTA – Kodak has begun delivering tanker loads of IPA from its Eastman Business Park facility in Rochester, New York.
“Kodak is committed to helping fight the spread of COVID-19,” said Jim Continenza, Executive Chairman at Kodak. “I couldn’t be prouder of our dedicated team members who quickly mobilized to provide this essential ingredient for hand sanitizer. We’ll continue to work closely with New York and federal representatives to identify other ways to bring Kodak’s resources and technology to bear in the fight against this pandemic.”
