Northfield, Ill.-based Medline on July 5 entered a distribution agreement with Hayward, Calif.-based Applied Silver.
Through the agreement, Medline customers can purchase Applied Silver’s SilvaClean product, a laundry additive that infuses antimicrobial properties into materials like bedding fabric, gowns and privacy curtains when washed.
“This agreement enables the delivery of SilvaClean technology to hundreds of hospitals and laundry providers interested in seamlessly providing antimicrobial properties to their existing textile inventories,” said Sean Morham, CEO of Applied Silver.
Medline also released its first corporate social responsibility report June 28. The report highlights the company’s first solar-powered distribution center in Tracy, Calif., and the donation of $770,000 worth of medical supplies and products in 2016, among other accomplishments.
