Launched in April 2020, the N! UNITED initiative aims to help and support regions most affected by the pandemic through the donations of surgical masks, hand sanitizer and other medical devices.
Thanks to the collaboration of the N! Community, the N! UNITED initiative has already helped to secure hospitals and workshops in Italy, Spain, Brazil, Lebanon, UK, Ukraine, Poland.
“We would like to thank our community,” said Gael Escribe, CEO of NEXUS, “and a special thanks to Osram and The Parts Alliance for their efforts and collaboration on this initiative. We will continue supporting our community to help creating a safe and healthy environment.”
Keeping customers and staff safe is of paramount importance in garages, especially in the current climate, and consequently OSRAM has supplied NEXUS (via The Parts Alliance) with 1,000 complimentary bottles of hand sanitizer to send out to its network of branches, including GSF, GMF, Allparts to name a few.
From there, the bottles will then be distributed to the Servicesure Autocentre members throughout the UK, helping them to stay safe throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.
A loyal customer, Bartley Garage Limited, who has been trading for more than 22 years and is based in Southampton, was the first to receive the complimentary sanitizer, with a representative from GSF Car Parts & The Parts Alliance, Simon McMullen, in attendance, as well as Mike Parker, Servicesure sales manager, Southern Division and Terri Clark, lighting marketing manager for OSRAM.
Dermot Dromey, owner of Bartley Garage, commented, “We’d like to thank all of those involved for this kind gesture as sanitizer has now become a necessary addition to any garage. Not only will it maximize the health and safety of the team and customers, but it also offers reassurance that we’re doing all we can to get drivers back on the road as safely as possible.”
McMullen added, “Dermot and the team at Bartley Garage have been a long-standing and highly valued customer of The Parts Alliance for over 20 years and we’re glad that they were happy to be a part of this initiative.”
“We are proud to have Bartley Garage as a member of the Servicesure programme and we are very grateful to OSRAM for this initiative,” noted Parker. “Dermot, as well as all the other Servicesure members around the UK are very grateful for this kind gesture at this tough time.”
