We hope this finds you and your family in good health (and in good spirits). The COVID-19 pandemic is top of mind lately, and it goes without saying many of us are under pressure as we make major transitions — working from home, coordinating new schooling arrangements for our children, and keeping our companies afloat.
While this has been an uncertain and stressful time, we realized our unique position to help the medical community, particularly where the delivery of much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) is concerned. It’s in this vein we wanted to reach out with a bit of good news and potential resources — both of which have the possibility to save lives.
Over the past four weeks, we have expanded our business to become a certified importer of PPE and other needed medical supplies (you can find us listed on the United Nations’ PPE Import Directory). In this short time, we have established a complete international supply chain path for distribution — directly to the doorsteps of hospitals in Idaho and most recently with the largest mask shipment to the four largest hospitals in Hawaii through our partner Hawaii Pacific Health.
As you likely know, we’ve spent the past two years establishing trusted partnerships with international organizations in tech, manufacturing, and healthcare/biomedical industries. (Learn more about our most recent visit to Taiwan during Governor Little’s official trade mission.) These relationships are now proving beneficial in ways we could have never foreseen, but we feel honored to do our part to help healthcare professionals in our community and beyond.
If you or someone you know is in the healthcare industry and responsible for sourcing PPE, please forward this email to them or pass along our contact information. We will be happy to send more details regarding supply updates (daily) and availability.
Thank you for your continued support during a challenging time. We look forward to seeing your faces again very soon!

COVID-19 Response Inventory Concerns
- Minute-by-minute inventory and pricing fluctuations: Product inventory and pricing continue to fluctuate daily due to global demands. Securing orders early and developing ongoing supplier relationships is critical in order to secure inventory. Forecasting orders for future fulfillment is already becoming difficult based on projected demands. Please click this link <PPE Product Updates> to discuss setting up solutions for your COVID response and to get on our daily product email.
- Too small to place orders? Global demand has made it nearly impossible for small order sourcing from suppliers. SMHeuristics has organized a Co-op to organize groups with smaller orders to join together for fulfillment with suppliers.
