Billy Maichle, CEO for ATHLETES GEL and Hammock Consumer, here. I have been asked a ton of questions about ATHLETES GEL and how it is shipped, shared with others, etc. The good news… I’m a Biochemist, so I know how to answer. The better news… I’ve been in pharmaceuticals, biologics, and some really complicated products in my former jobs, so I know how to keep you safe!
Here is the layout for ATHLETES GEL:
FACILITY - We are a totally self-contained, private operation and our focus is ONLY ATHLETES GEL.
LOCATION - Our shipping and receiving is only done from our headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Our Shipping/Receiving Room…. it is aseptic (totally clean). We have no porous surfaces (i.e. wood/cardboard boxes), aside from the outer tube boxes (more on that below!).
- The room is on a dedicated air handling system with HEPA filters. It is temperature and humidity controlled and constantly monitored.
- We are an FDA compliant facility and file every quarter with FDA.
LIMITED ACCESS - Only two people have access to the Shipping/Receiving Room. My CFO (I do need to make money, of course) and me.
PERSONNEL - The two of us that can ship use hand sanitizer and masks before we walk into the room.
SAFETY & SANITATION - We UV light everything, including the outer tube boxes (inside and out) and the outer shipping bags.
- UV light has been extensively shown to kill pretty much anything. Our mission at ATHLETES GEL is to bring you a nature-based experience. I don’t want chemicals on anything. UV works so well.
Even as a start-up company, I can promise you we are light years ahead of our competitors and the leading e-commerce gorilla. We work not only to keep you on court, trail, bike, etc., but to keep you safe. Our procedures are not just in place as a temporary measure against Coronavirus. These are our standard practices to ensure quality and safety every day, always.
And, as always, I am here for you so call, text or email me with any questions or comments. We are in a bit of strange time right now and it can be scary. No one wants to be sick. I don’t want you to do anything less than PREPARE. PERFORM. RECOVER.
