ATLANTA -- Leading healthcare improvement company, Premier, has awarded GP PRO, a division of Georgia-Pacific and a provider of hygienic healthcare solutions, a contracted position for its Soaps, Lotions and Waterless Hand Rinses category.

Effective May 1, 2021, the new agreement allows Premier members to take advantage of pre-negotiated terms on select GP PRO items within the designated category.

“This agreement validates the years-long work and dedication GP PRO has put into developing a robust and effective skin care portfolio that is proven to help advance hand hygiene and help reduce the risk of HAIs,” said Eric Jungslager, vice president of healthcare with GP PRO. “It’s incredibly affirming that Premier recognizes the critical role our products and solutions play in helping to make patient care and the delivery of healthcare services safer.”

The timing of the Premier award comes on the heels of GP PRO completing a number of new investments to meet growing market demand for quality soap and sanitizer systems. The award also buoys GP PRO’s year-long hygiene readiness initiative, which aims to help facilities safely re-open amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and reinforces widely held hygiene best practices, such as proper hand washing, staying six feet away from others, and increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing.

Among the products included in GP PRO’s new group purchasing agreement with Premier are its enMotion Gen2 Automated Touchless Soap & Sanitizer Dispensers and Pacific Blue Ultra Manual Dispensers, as well as a broad line of gentle and effective refillable soaps, sanitizers, body washes, and skin lotions designed to promote good hygiene and a better patient experience.

These products complement GP PRO’s enMotion Towel and Compact Tissue products, which are also available through the company’s new Premier contracted position.
