BRISTOL, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2009--
Barnes Distribution, a business of Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B) and a
major maintenance, repair, operating (MRO) supplies distributor, has
assembled some of the toughest germ fighting products in the industry in
its new Cold and Flu Flyer to help businesses keep their workers healthy
and stave off the flu virus in what is expected to be a busy flu season.
With the seasonal flu and H1N1 flu viruses thought to spread mainly from
person to person through coughing or sneezing of people with influenza,
according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Barnes Distribution’s
six-page Cold and Flu Flyer contains more than 32 products to mitigate
and control the spread of germs. Products range from hand soaps and
sanitizers and to face masks, nitrile gloves and facial tissues.
Germs are also thought to spread by employees touching something
infected with flu viruses and then touching their mouth or nose. The
Cold and Flu Flyer contains surface disinfectants and sanitizers, wipes
and towels to clean work environments.
The CDC reports that most adults may be able to infect others one day
before symptoms develop and up to seven days after becoming sick. This
means employees can pass on the flu to colleagues before they even know
they are sick, as well as while they are sick.
“Especially this year, Barnes Distribution strives to support businesses
taking measures to ensure their employees are not adversely impacted by
a flu virus,” said Chris Paczak, Director, Product Marketing, Barnes
Distribution, North America.
To obtain a copy of the flyer, contact your local Barnes Distribution
representative by calling 1-866-GET MROP or visit the
