DUBLIN, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The «Aluminum Composite Panel – Global Market Outlook (2019-2027)» report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The Global Aluminum Composite Panel market accounted for $7.33 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $14.50 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period. Increasing demand from end-use industries is the major factor propelling market growth. However, the high repairing cost if broken or dented is likely to inhibit market growth.

Aluminum composite panels are light-weight compound material consisting of two pre-finished aluminium cover sheets heat-bonded to a core made of polyethylene plastic substance. These panels are used broadly as outer surface layer of commercial buildings and corporate houses.

Based on the vehicle type, the passenger cars segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth owing to increasing demand for private vehicles among customers across the globe. With the rapid urbanization and high disposable income, the customer’s preference is shifting towards personal vehicle rather than travelling by public transport. This change will drive the demand of passenger cars, thereby accelerating market growth.

By geography, Asia Pacific is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period due to the expansion in the construction industry in developing nations like India, China, Indonesia and Vietnam. In addition to this, the quick rise in the population, growing number of green building and the high demand for affordable house will further boost the growth of the market.

Some of the key players profiled in the Aluminum Composite Panel Market include Guangzhou Xinghe Acp, Interplast, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Mulford Plastic, Rusal, Shanghai Huayuan New Composite Material Co Ltd, Yaret Industrial Group, Alcobond, Alstone, Alstrong Enterprise, Alubond A, Alucoil, Amag Metall, Constellium, Alcoa and Jyi Shyang Industrial Co., Ltd.

GOJO is Supporting K-12 Schools with PURELL® Products, Education, and Training

AKRON, Ohio, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — 


GOJO Industries (PRNewsFoto/GOJO Industries)

AKRON, Ohio, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — 

Media Statement
From Carey Jaros, President and CEO, GOJO

Since February, demand for hygiene products – especially hand sanitizer and surface disinfectant – has been exponentially higher than any time in history. As the pandemic has evolved over the past several months, we have continually adapted our response. What started as a rush for products at retailers in February quickly became urgent demand by those on the front lines of the crisis – hospitals, first responders and grocery stores. This summer, the country started reopening to public life, and businesses, restaurants, and other institutions raced to secure PURELL® Hand Sanitizer, PURELL® brand HEALTHY SOAP™, and PURELL® Surface Spray. As we head into the fall, with reopening continuing while at the same time many areas are seeing a resurgence in illness, demand continues to be extraordinary. 

We recognize the immediate and urgent need to provide K-12 schools with safe and effective hand hygiene and surface disinfecting products as they bring children and teachers back into classrooms over the coming weeks. There has been significant media coverage of the FDA’s recent ban of over 100 brands of hand sanitizer for containing toxic ingredients. In line with our GOJO Purpose of Saving Lives and Making Life Better, never have we felt more responsibility to ensure trusted PURELL® products – which are made with only the best raw materials, are always produced in strict compliance with all FDA and EPA requirements, and are rigorously tested for both safety and efficacy – are available in K-12 schools. 

As families shop for back-to-school supplies, we know they may have some difficulty finding PURELL® Hand Sanitizer on store shelves. While we have returned to shipping product to stores and online retailers at more than double 2019 levels, and while these retailers are enforcing limits to how much any one customer can buy, PURELL® Hand Sanitizer is often wiped out as soon as it is restocked. Our investments in manufacturing, including activating more than two-million additional square feet of production space, will allow us to make exponentially more PURELL® products available in stores and online, over the next six months. 

In the meantime, however, GOJO and our distributor partners are actively working directly with as many school districts throughout the country as we can to provide the PURELL® Hand Sanitizer, PURELL® brand HEALTHY SOAP™, and PURELL® Surface Spray they need to reopen with confidence. For example, we have rapidly developed and launched some new solutions designed especially for schools. We are also providing protocols, training materials, and educational content to support schools in maximizing the impact of the products they have available, including when and how these products should be used, and where to place wall-mounted dispensers, floor stands, and tabletop bottles – so sanitizing and washing fit into the normal flow of the school day.

One of our GOJO Guiding Principles has always been «We Do What’s Right for the Long Haul.» Ensuring our children and those who teach and care for them have access to safe and effective hand sanitizer, soap, and clean surfaces has never been more important. We are proud that PURELL® Hand Sanitizer has been the #1 Most Trusted Brand in Hospitals* for decades, and we are committed to bringing that same peace of mind to parents, students, teachers, and staff during these unprecedented times. We will work tirelessly with our distributor partners to outfit as many schools as we can over the coming weeks and months while also building out our manufacturing capacity to support these schools and the communities they serve, into the future.

Center for American Entrepreneurship Joins Coalition of Business & Policy Organizations in Letter Supporting the Recovery Sector Loan Program & Urging Broader Eligibility

WASHINGTON, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — John R. Dearie, President of the Center for American Entrepreneurship, today issued the following statement regarding a letter to Congressional leadership signed by a coalition of 29 business and policy organizations regarding the small business Recovery Sector Loan program provisions of the Health, Economic Assistance, Liability Protection, and Schools (HEALS) Act.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — John R. Dearie, President of the Center for American Entrepreneurship, today issued the following statement regarding a letter to Congressional leadership signed by a coalition of 29 business and policy organizations regarding the small business Recovery Sector Loan program provisions of the Health, Economic Assistance, Liability Protection, and Schools (HEALS) Act.

«The Center for American Entrepreneurship (CAE) is pleased to join our colleagues at 29 other organizations in a letter sent yesterday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer in support of the small business Recovery Sector Loan program provisions of the HEALS Act, and urging that the program’s eligibility criteria be broadened to include more small businesses, given the severity and prolonged duration of the COVID-19 crisis. CAE thanks our colleagues at the Economic Innovation Group for their leadership in organizing this important letter.

«As the letter states:

‘We strongly affirm that the structure of the proposed lending instrument – i.e., long-term, very low-interest, waived credit tests, and deferred repayment – is the right approach for businesses who need to weather an extended crisis and the resulting decrease in consumer demand. The proposed 7(a) Recovery Sector Loan Program would fill a crucial gap in current support for small businesses, and serve as a necessary complement to existing government-backed options, such as the short-term assistance offered by PPP or the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program.

‘However, as currently drafted, the Recovery Sector Loan Program’s narrowly-defined eligibility requirements would bypass the majority of small businesses desperately in need of a lifeline. To remedy this, we urge Congress to lower the revenue loss threshold below the current 50 percent requirement and shorten the time period during which the revenue loss must have occurred to eight weeks versus one quarter. We also recommend broadening the eligibility to any business who meets the size threshold and economic harm standard, regardless of location. However, we also recognize that low-income communities have been disproportionately affected by both the public health crisis and the resulting economic fallout. Therefore, we would support measures to provide additional targeting to small businesses in these communities in the form of set-asides or streamlined eligibility standards.’

«CAE thanks Speaker Pelosi and Leaders McConnell, Schumer, and McCarthy for their work to date to protect small businesses from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We agree with our colleagues that Congress must now move beyond stop-gap relief and enact a program that more fully aligns with the scale and duration of the crisis. We look forward to working with Congress and the Administration to see the assistance small businesses need and deserve enacted into law.»

The 29 signatories of the letter include: American Hotel & Lodging Association, American Mold Builders Association, America’s Recovery Fund Coalition, Asian American Hotel Owners Association, Center for American Entrepreneurship, Economic Innovation Group, Engine, Exhibitor Appointed Contractor Association, Exhibition Services & Contractors Association, Experiential Design + Producers Association, Go LIVE Together, Gusto, Independent Payroll Providers Association, International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, International Association of Exhibitions and Events, International Council of Shopping Centers, International Franchise Association, National Tooling and Machining Association, NFIB, North American Die Casting Association, Page 30 Coalition, Precision Machined Products Association, Precision Metalforming Association, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council, Small Business for America’s Future, Small Business Majority, Society of Independent Show Organizers, The Payroll Group, and U.S. Travel Association.

The full letter to Congressional leadership can be found here.

County-level COVID-19 Projections Improve Following New Masking, Distancing Requirements

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — New COVID-19 projections released today by PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) show clear evidence that mitigation efforts recommended by the White House Coronavirus…

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — New COVID-19 projections released today by PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) show clear evidence that mitigation efforts recommended by the White House Coronavirus Task Force are working to reduce risk of continued widespread transmission in states that have adopted them. Conversely, the model’s four-week forecasts have worsened for states that have not enacted masking mandates or adopted strong social distancing practices, such as Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee and Georgia.

In addition to their regular four-week COVID-19 case projections for 747 counties across the U.S., the researchers have been closely following a special analysis of rollback scenarios involving universal masking and tightening of social distancing and occupancy policies in 158 of the country’s largest counties. These modeled scenarios reflect guidance being shared with state governments by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, for whom the scenarios were originally prepared. The researchers are beginning to see improved forecasts in the states that have adopted these policy recommendations, many of which are considered hotspots. For example, transmission risk for the next four weeks has consistently decreased in communities across Louisiana, Alabama, Ohio, Indiana, Arizona and Colorado, which have all established universal masking mandates.

Still, many hotspots continue to see concerning forecasts for continued resurgence. The Upper Midwest and communities along the western coast of Lake Michigan, including Chicago and Milwaukee, continue to have high risk for resurgence in the coming weeks. The model shows heightened risk for growing case counts to quickly reproduce in Baltimore and the Virginia and Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., which will likely threaten the nation’s capital in the coming weeks. Forecasts for Boston now look worse than those of New York City, which has been largely insulated from current resurgence in the Northeast, but still remains at risk from increasing infections in New Jersey, the Philadelphia region and south following the I-95 corridor. Data from the model also shows that residents in states across the Heartland and to the south, including Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas and, once again, the Dallas and Houston metro areas, are not practicing enough social distancing to reduce the surging spread of the virus in those regions.

«In the face of unwillingness to invoke federal powers mandating practical, evidence-based strategies to combat widespread transmission of coronavirus throughout the county, it’s encouraging to see that the White House Coronavirus Task Force’s work to align state leaders on sensible distancing and masking policies is gaining traction with most governors, leading to improved forecasts and declining national daily case rates,» said David Rubin, MD, MSCE, director of PolicyLab at CHOP and a professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. «We can only hope that other governors who have been holding out on enacting these strong public health measures will fall in line to unify our response as a nation and sufficiently protect all communities as we head towards fall.»

For additional comments from lead investigators Dr. Rubin, Dr. Gregory Tasian, and Dr. Jing Huang on their updated forecasts and findings, read this blog post; https://policylab.chop.edu/blog/covid-19-outlook-regaining-control

Background
Researchers at PolicyLab at CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania developed the model, known as COVID-Lab: Mapping COVID-19 in Your Community, which tracks and projects COVID-19 transmission across 747 U.S. counties with active outbreaks, representing 80% of the U.S. population and 89% of all identified coronavirus cases. The researchers built their model to observe how social distancing, population density, daily temperatures, and humidity affect the number and spread of COVID-19 infections over time across a county, accounting for test positivity rates and population characteristics such as age, insurance status, crowding within homes and diabetes prevalence. COVID-Lab’s projections forecast the number of coronavirus cases communities could experience over the next four weeks based on a three-day average of their current social distancing practices, defined by the change in travel to non-essential businesses as compared to pre-epidemic. The application of this model, which focuses on time-varying transmission rates during the early months of the pandemic in the U.S., was released on July 23, following peer review, in JAMA Network Open. You can read more about how the team validates their models for accuracy in this blog post. The data are publicly available in the form of interactive maps and graphs.

TFORM Poised to Provide the Most Comprehensive View of a Hybrid IT Environment

IRVING, Texas, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — TFORM today announced the launch of its new data center and workload assessment solution by the same name, which provides the most comprehensive view of any IT environment, whether on premises or in a public or private cloud. This unrivaled capability creates a new category of data center analytics that will fundamentally change how technology leaders achieve workload optimization and digital transformation and modernization.

IRVING, Texas, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — TFORM today announced the launch of its new data center and workload assessment solution by the same name, which provides the most comprehensive view of any IT environment, whether on premises or in a public or private cloud. This unrivaled capability creates a new category of data center analytics that will fundamentally change how technology leaders achieve workload optimization and digital transformation and modernization.

Stoney Gwitira, COO at TFORM, said, «After assessing the data centers of so many companies over the years, we’ve learned that many leaders feel a lack of control simply because they don’t know everything that is in their data centers. They can’t see the vulnerabilities that are lying in wait to disrupt business. They can’t see how their applications and devices depend on one another. TFORM solves these problems.»

TFORM is a proprietary engine with an agentless, organic discovery that finds all the needles in the IT environment haystack. The result is unmatched visibility and context that empowers better decision-making.

Asked about how TFORM was conceived, CEO Andy Abbas explained, «TFORM is the culmination of many years of migrating client environments using third party tools that were not optimized for assessing data centers with complex or legacy configurations.» He added, «The discovery tools we once used were not organically discovering and omitting data that was crucial to the IT environment, so we decided to build our own.»

Tech expert and renowned industry analyst Bill Kleyman adds, «Ultimately, this is a master tool…to sort through the vast array of data flowing through a network. What makes TFORM unique is the visualization and control you have over the data flow. Unlike other platforms, this solution will allow administrators to granularly and contextually understand where data resides and how it interacts with internal systems.»

The first application to sit on the TFORM platform is the data center and workload assessment module, to be quickly followed by the second module, an end-user computing digital workplace automation solution to be available in Fall 2020.

About TFORM
TFORM is a Hybrid Digital Infrastructure Management (HDIM) foundation for technology applications that bring visibility, intelligence and automation to everything in an IT environment. See everything you have, it’s health, where it’s operating, how it’s connected and who owns it. Know when to retire, consolidate or migrate workloads and assets based on utilization and inter-dependencies. Quickly address vulnerabilities, enabling you to successfully mitigate business risks. Monitor all of this – from one dashboard. Using advanced analytics, TFORM pulls together disparate data sets, transforming them into actionable intelligence. Further, TFORM automates the many tasks needed to act upon the intelligence it delivers. TFORM simplifies modernization and operations by combining compute, storage, network, security, migration and optimization into one solution.

Having a uniformed guard takes YOUR employees off the front line of enforcing whatever guidelines you need implemented.

NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Committee of 100 (C100), a non-profit U.S. leadership organization of prominent Chinese Americans in business, government, academia, healthcare, and the arts, announced today a donation of 850,000 N95 masks, valued at over $3 million, to around 100 hospitals and healthcare institutions in underserved communities.

NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Committee of 100 (C100), a non-profit U.S. leadership organization of prominent Chinese Americans in business, government, academia, healthcare, and the arts, announced today a donation of 850,000 N95 masks, valued at over $3 million, to around 100 hospitals and healthcare institutions in underserved communities. Through a partnership with the American Federation of Teachers, Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations, Jewish Federations of North America, KAHAL, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, National Alliance for Hispanic Health, National Urban League, Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, Partnership With Native Americans, and US Heartland China Association, this donation is geared to assist disproportionately impacted minority communities and the healthcare institutions that serve them in the fight against COVID-19.

«With this donation of 850,000 N95 masks, C100 seeks to provide much-needed support to nearly 100 hospitals and healthcare institutions in the communities of color that continue to bear the brunt of this pandemic,» said Zhengyu Huang, President, C100. «This project is a continuation of our ongoing efforts to combat COVID-19 and collaborate on important issues that affect all Americans, but especially communities of color.»

In order to directly support those in need, C100 is partnering with leaders among American communities of color to donate high quality FDA-approved, NIOSH-certified N95 masks straight to hospitals operating in underserved American communities. These masks were purchased using private donations and secured in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, Flexport, NYU Langone Health, and Asian Tigers Moving & Storage. C100 is covering all associated shipping costs, with support from Flexport’s Frontline Responders Fund. The masks will be used by the brave doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers who continue to fight the pandemic on the frontline.

«On behalf of the City of New York, I would like to thank the leaders of C100 for donating lifesaving personal protective equipment (PPE),» said COVID-19 Public-Private Partnership Czar Peter Hatch. «Our healthcare workers appreciate the generosity you have shown throughout the pandemic.»

According to a joint effort between the COVID Tracking Project and Boston University Center for Antiracist Research, Black people are dying from COVID-19 at 2.5 times the rate of white people. Indigenous, Hispanic, Latino, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities are also affected at rates higher than white communities. The donation of N95 masks to hospitals serving these communities is part of C100’s continued commitment to addressing the effects of systemic racism and racial inequality in the country through cross-community collaboration.

«As we continue to see surges of COVID-19 cases in Hispanic communities, we thank the Committee of 100 for their generous donation of N95 masks to 15 of our member community health centers. More than ever we need to support each other,» said Jane L. Delgado, PhD, MS, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health.

«In this time when hospitals and health centers across the country are continuing to face shortages, the donation of PPE – N95 masks in particular- is crucial to the health and safety of the doctors, health workers serving Black and Latino communities,» added Dr. Marjorie Innocent, Senior Director of Health Programs at the NAACP. «African-Americans continue to be disproportionately affected by COVID-19 pandemic at alarming rates and the need for quality care could not be more urgent. We are grateful to C100 for this generous gift.»

Since the pandemic began, C100 and its membership have been a leader in fundraising and donating needed PPE to hospitals and communities throughout the United States. Earlier this year, C100 raised over $1 million from members and distributed high-quality FDA-approved, NIOSH-certified N95 masks, coveralls, and isolation gowns to 40 hospitals and healthcare institutions in communities hardest hit by the pandemic. C100 members have also individually donated more than $7 million to combat the pandemic.

«Native American communities grapple with the reality of limited resources every single day, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only magnified the critical need for supplies,» said Joshua Arce, President and CEO of Partnership With Native Americans (PWNA). «C100’s significant donation will allow PWNA to provide thousands of masks to our health partners in reservation communities who are doing all they can to protect those who are most vulnerable.»
