How about a 55 gallon drum of hand sanitizer?

Hand sanitizer is one of the most valued commodities these days, but one company is offering it in five-gallon buckets and even 55-gallon drums.

RelaDyne, a fuel and lubricants distributor in Cincinnati that includes Flamingo Oil in Florida, placed an order for a truckload of liquid hand sanitizer and expects it to arrive in two weeks, says  Kristene Tokesky, who is an independent regional sales director for Flamingo Oil.

“RelaDyne was able to obtain this truckload, but I don’t know the details of how,” Tokesky said. ” We just started pre-selling it today, with a favorable response, as you can imagine. ”

It’s not a gel type of hand sanitizer, but it is 80 percent alcohol and you can put it in a hand sprayer and use it on your hands or spray it on surfaces. The company lists a variety of potential uses:

  • Golf courses: Spray pins, ball washers, divot boxes, putting green flags/pins, pins, holes, riding carts, pull carts, door handles
  • Truck stops/gas stations: Pumps, reels, credit card readers, air pump filler, handles
  • Manufacturing: Loading of trucks, pumps, gear boxes, steel drums, IBC’s, tank/hose switches
  • Dealerships/oil changers: Pumps, reels, hoses, test cars driven, lobby, waiting rooms
  • Postal Service/sanitization: Metal services on trucks, trash cans, mailboxes,
  • Other possible industries: HVAC, community pools, parks, hospitals, businesses, restaurants, bars, grocers, hotels, construction sites, municipalities

The 5 gallon pail with a pump is $225 and the 55 gallon drum is $1,800.

Tokesky is also a vice president at Lank Oil, which sold the lubricant side of its business to Flamingo Oil in 2011.   “Lank Oil only sells fuel now, but we are able to offer lubricants and chemicals via Flamingo Oil,” Tokesky said. Those interested should email her at Kristene.Lundblad@reladyne.com.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
