PELICAN™ HOSTS MULTI-DAY BLOOD DRIVE EVENT
Provider of temperature controlled packaging solutions recognizes the importance of blood donation in maintaining
critical blood supplies
Pelican BioThermal™ LLC joins parent company Pelican Products, Inc. to recognize the importance of blood donation through a multi-day blood drive taking place during June and July following the World Health Organization’s World Blood Donor Day.
The blood drive kicks off June 29 with events at the offices of Pelican Products in Torrance, California and Pelican BioThermal in Plymouth, Minnesota. A subsequent event will be held at Pelican Products, Inc. in South Deerfield, Massachusetts on July 12. The multi-day event ties in with both the mission and purpose of Pelican BioThermal and Pelican Products, including a desire to serve the community. The event also meets the demands of their customer base, which includes the most demanding markets, like fire safety, law enforcement, defense and military, and the life sciences industry.
“Pelican BioThermal products were originally developed for Special Forces to transport blood units with them into the field,” explained Pelican BioThermal President, David Williams. “Developing products used to keep blood at a stable temperature is a key part of our business and we understand the important role that blood donation plays in maintaining critical blood supplies for lifesaving procedures.”
Today, Pelican BioThermal provides a full range of single use and reusable temperature controlled packaging options that ensure the integrity of mobile blood supplies and inventories for blood banks, hospitals, EMT personnel and first responders alike.
