On April 1st, 2020, Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio made an appeal to the state's manufacturing companies to repurpose factories to produce difficult to obtain supplies needed in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Here is my request: If you are a manufacturer, we need your help," DeWine stated. "We need your help right now." DeWine asked them to visit the website repurposingproject.com, "If you click there, you will see all of the different things we need." DeWine assured manufacturers, "Let me just say, the money will be there."
Rising BioSciences, joins a number of other regional manufacturers, in responding to Governor DeWine's appeal. Art Hall, CEO of Rising BioSciences states, "We are proud to join the voluntary mobilization of private industry across our region to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Not just in our region, but nationwide you can see auto-makers producing ventilators, vodka companies making hand sanitizer, and textile plants making face masks. In this time of great need, we are pivoting away from our normal sector and repurposing our lab to produce over 10,000 gallons of much needed disinfectant a month. We feel this is the right thing to do. The Oxi Thyme™ system combines Oxithymol™ with an innovative, easy-application fogging system. It means essential industries and businesses can keep running while minimizing the threat to employees from highly infectious pathogens. We have been able to complete the repurposing of our lab swiftly. Over a year ago, our team developed an extremely effective disinfectant formula as an in-house project for the sanitizing of our own facilities. We had considered a wider market launch, but hesitated as we did not want to shift the spotlight from our other projects at that time. How a few months have changed the world. When all is said and done, however, this dovetails well with our commitment to promote health and quality of life in our nation with the most effective, natural solutions available."
Mr. Hall concluded, "I also want to take this opportunity to update shareholders on the status of some of our other business units. Our Alternative Medicine Centers of America continue to offer treatment. Due to the coronavirus crisis, our physicians have switched from face to face appointments to telehealth online consultations. Our doctors report that the convenience of telehealth means appointment numbers are actually up, and no-shows are at an all time low. Also due to the current crisis, progress at our Sandusky inpatient behavioural health center project has been impacted, and is on hold for the time being."
