Our Strategy to Combat COVID-19
We at Aquatic Solutions are doing our very best to adapt and support our customers in these trying times and as such we need to work closely together to ensure we engage and maintain our supply chain. This means we need to stabilise our cash flow so the distribution of fish can continue, and our valued staff are guaranteed income. I can only sympathise with our many valued customers who may also be struggling to deal with this pandemic with whatever means available.
As such we at Aquatic Solutions are looking to temporarily change the direction of our company by using our vast contacts—both domestically and internationally—to look at sourcing and distributing non-pharmacological interventions (NPIs) such as surgical face masks, KN95 face masks, hand sanitisers, anti-bacterial hand washes, alcohol wet wipes etc. These are highly sought after and quite difficult to source now (especially at reasonable prices). This would be a direct benefit for store owners and their staff, and it may also be a means of generating some extra temporary income for you all. Distributing such products could also be the determinant of what is deemed an “essential business” and could possibly assist in securing and stabilising your business in this crisis.
Countries such as Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong are epitomised as leading countries to slow the spread of this virus. We witnessed and are still seeing them quickly implementing travel restrictions, social distancing and strict quarantine. They all have a strong disease surveillance and a collectively coordinated effort from everyone. Aquatic Solutions also want to make a holistically positive movement through our approach and supply equipment to similarly facilitate the safe-being of our valued customers, their staff and subsequently their customers. We want to greatly encourage our customers to stay striving as an "essential business".
So let’s take the initiative!
I understand these are early, uncertain times but I would like to gauge your interest on such products and that if you would like to support us on this new business strategy.
Here’s an interesting video of Bill Gates predicting the epidemic 5 years ago:
Wishing everyone all the best in these testing times.
I just want to reiterate a point that was taught to me from a great man and it goes along the lines of this:
'The only thing predictable in business is that it's unpredictable. One must continually adapt and change to be successful'.
