Products will help combat swine flu.

Byline: DAVE JONES

A NORTH Wales manufacturer is launching a new product to offer consumers an effective way to help combat swine flu.

For over 20 years, John Dale Ltd from Flint has been producing high quality disposable wipes for the skincare, toiletries and household markets.

Over the past few months, it has developed the JD Protects anti-viral range of disposable wipes for personal, household and workplace use.

The firm says the active ingredient in the consumer friendly formula will, after only one minute of contact kill 99% of cold and flu viruses including human influenza H1N1 and swine flu.

The product works by killing flu viruses including H1N1 already on the skin or surfaces then an invisible coating protects them against the viruses until the next wash.

Like the hand and face wipes, surface wipes are designed to protect against flu viruses in public transport, public toilets, restaurants, offices and other environments as well as on surfaces such as telephones, door handles and computer keyboards.

Company owner and founder John Dale said: "As the country braces itself for peak levels of swine flu later in the year, this breakthrough will come as a great relief to millions of Britons.

"Thanks to JD Protects, consumers and businesses can add an element of control to their daily lives, ultimately reducing the level of fear and helping contain the virus."

So confident is he about the company's new range that he has decided to introduce the products for use at the John Dale Ltd factory which employs 60 people at Flint.

The firm was founded in 1987 and today manufactures tissues and wet wipe products for the toiletry and household retail markets.
