INDIANAPOLIS – For the last decade a local, veteran-owned small business has quietly been supplying their USA made hand sanitizer directly to government agencies across America. Then COVID-19 hit the United States, and SaniGo felt called to the frontlines once again.
“We just knew we had to help,” SaniGo Business Development Manager Jordan Mendenhall said. “We saw the need, and decided to shift gears.”

Instead of sending employees home without work, SaniGo team members donned their face masks and immediately started herculean efforts towards a common goal; battling the COVID-19 pandemic. A bigger production facility was found and sprung to life. Materials in short supply were hunted down. Formulas were adjusted to meet new sanitizer guidelines. Their endeavors echoing a time during World War II when companies across America came together to switch production lines to support the greater good.
“We’re doing our best to safely produce as much quality product as possible,” Mendenhall said. “We know there is a massive need, and we’re trying to fill it.”
Mendenhall added that SaniGo “cares about families”, which is why their 75% isopropyl alcohol solution is formulated in accordance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) and World Health Organization (W.H.O.) guidelines, and is safe for anyone over the age of two months.
But SaniGo isn’t just trying to turn a quick dollar. The company has also recently started to make donations of their industrial-grade sanitizer to local charities serving the veteran community in Indianapolis.
“We believe it’s important to give back to those who sacrificed for our country,” Mendenhall said. “It’s just that simple.”
For clients close to their production facility in Indianapolis, IN., SaniGo is also offering special services to help keep locals safe while COVID-19 cases still continue to climb.
“After listening to client feedback, and taking into account C.D.C. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) safety guidelines, we’ve decided to offer free curbside delivery to anyone willing to drive to our production facility,” Mendenhall said. “We want our clients to feel as safe as possible, while doing our part to help stop the spread of this deadly disease.”
Mendenhall added that free same or next day deliver was also being offered to any retailer or business in the Indianapolis metro area, but that a minimum purchase of $30 would be required.
“We’ve heard the reports of empty shelves, shrinking supply, and shortages,” Mendenhall said. “We know products like ours are in high demand, which is why we’re working hard to make sure our products remain affordable and available to all throughout the COVID-19 crisis.”
