Aemetis signs distributor agreement for health safety products

By Aemetis Inc. | November 24, 2020

Aemetis Inc. announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Aemetis Health Products, Inc., received a $24 million initial purchase order after signing a supply agreement for sanitizer alcohol and nitrile gloves with a California distributor that provides health safety products to the state of California as well as other governmental entities and large hospital chains throughout the U.S.

“Aemetis Health Products became what we believe to be the largest production plant for sanitizer alcohol in the Western U.S. during the second quarter of 2020.  We are now executing on our plan to produce and market alcohol-based health safety products including hand sanitizer, sanitizer wipes and aerosol sanitizers under the Aemetis and private label brand names,” said Eric McAfee, chairman and CEO of Aemetis.  “Our government and healthcare customers have repeatedly requested that Aemetis extend our product line to include the supply of nitrile gloves.  With more than a decade of extensive business experience in Asian markets, we believe Aemetis is well positioned to be a trusted partner of health safety product manufacturers in that region, as well as other international markets.”

To support the supply agreement and enable the expansion of the Aemetis Health Products business, Aemetis has negotiated the general terms of a new credit facility with its existing lender, which will be used solely for our health safety product transactions.
