Highline Aftermarket, a leading national distributor of automotive products, has joined the fight against the spread of the deadly virus that causes COVID-19. The company announced recently that facilities producing products like Rain-X washer fluid and Prime Guard diesel exhaust fluid have increased production of 80% alcohol hand sanitizer and 100% pure household bleach.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection recommends alcohol-based hand sanitizers (composed of at least 70% alcohol) as an effective way to destroy and slow the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Disinfectant bleach is recommended for sanitizing household surfaces, using a mixture of five tablespoons of chlorine bleach per gallon of water. (Learn more at cdc.gov.)

“With our capabilities and resources, no company is better positioned than Highline to make these much-needed products,” said Will DuBose, president of manufacturing. “Our team drove this strategy because we have the flexibility to quickly plan and increase production. We’ve focused three of our facilities on emergency pandemic response, and to fulfill demand all are running six days a week, producing hundreds of thousands of gallons of liquid hand sanitizer and bleach. Highline will continue to do everything we can to support our customers to help battle COVID-19, and together we will beat this.”
