SafeSource Direct and Lovell Government Services Partner to Provide American-Made PPE to Federal Agencies
May 16, 2023
SafeSource Direct and Lovell Government Services (Lovell) announced today that they have partnered to provide American-made personal protective equipment (PPE) to federal agencies, including the Veterans Health Administration and Military Health System. SafeSource Direct's high-quality PPE is available for immediate purchase on government contract vehicles. Lovell represents SafeSource Direct as one of its Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) distributors.
“As an American owned, located, and operated company, we are honored to partner with Lovell to provide high-quality PPE to federal agencies. Our veterans, like Chris Lovell, have sacrificed so much for our country, and it's rewarding to work with them to meet the needs of our nation’s public servants,” said Justin Hollingsworth, CEO, SafeSource Direct.
As a SafeSource Direct SDVOSB distributor, Lovell brings high-quality, American-made PPE products to federal healthcare providers. Agencies can find SafeSource Direct on the Department of Defense’s Distribution and Pricing Agreement (DAPA), the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Federal Supply Schedule (FSS), and the Defense Logistics Agency’s (DLA) ECAT system. Listing products on contract vehicles with Lovell streamlines the acquisition process while helping government agencies meet their SDVOSB procurement goals.
"It is essential that our country's healthcare providers and staff have consistent access to high-quality personal protective equipment, so they are never put at risk due to global supply shortages and substandard products. By ensuring a reliable source for American-made PPE, we’re helping keep federal employees, our Veterans, and their families safe,” said Chris Lovell, USMC Major (Ret.), Chief Executive Officer, Lovell Government Services.
