LSG: Your reliable partner in Pampanga for high-quality PPEs

IF YOU'RE having a hard time looking for high-quality personal protective equipment (PPEs) in Pampanga, this article is for you.

Remember the first few months when Covid-19 started spreading across the country? During that time, there was a shortage of PPE supplies, and when supplies were restocked, low-quality rip off items entered the market.

That gave consumers, especially medical front liners, a hard-time finding a reliable source for high-quality PPEs.

Well, no need to worry because LSG Industrial & Office Products Inc. in Clark offers a wide variety of topnotch quality PPEs.

"Since demands for PPEs have surged, the market has been saturated with subpar quality supplies, but we at LSG assure consumers of topnotch PPEs since we directly get our supplies from the manufacturers," said Christian John G. Costales, Business Development head of LSG.

Costales said doctors, nurses and other front liners in Pampanga, Central Luzon, and other regions of the country can confidently purchase their needed PPEs since multinational and well-known PPE manufacturers have partnered with LSG and has become an authorized distributor.

These world-class PPE manufacturers and providers are 3M, which originated in Minnesota, United States; MSA Safety, which headquarters is based in Pennsylvania, USA; and lastly, Draeger a European brand located in Lubeck, Germany.

Long before the pandemic crisis today, these manufacturers are known to serve the highest quality of PPEs throughout the globe.

At present, Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, International Committee of the Red Cross, International Federation of Red Cross, Red Crescent Societies and United Nations Population Fund, Jose B. Lingad Regional Memorial Medical Center (JBLRMMC), Makati Medical Center, St. Lukes, Floridablanca Doctors Hospital, Inc., Pampanga Premiere Medical Center, Pampanga Medical Specialist Hospital, Laguna Doctors Hospital, Cardinal Santos Medical Center, Philippine Children's Medical Center, Dr. Yanga Hospital, and among other doctors and front liners from different hospitals have partnered with LSG for their PPE supplies.

Besides Luzon provinces, LSG made a reach as well to support PPEs to doctors and hospitals from Bacolod, Cebu and Davao region.

To make their products more accessible, LSG is set to launch an online platform wherein consumers can easily purchase high-quality personal protective equipment (PPEs).

The online platform will feature in demand PPEs including powered-air purifying respirators (PAPR), face masks, face shields, eye protectors, isolation gowns and coveralls, disposable and reusable respirators and among others.

Though the online portal is still under the works, Costales said customers can purchase PPE's from their website (www. https://lsgindustrial.com/) or make an inquiry with their customer service for the meantime.

Humble beginnings

LSG is one of the most leading local suppliers of industrial, school, office and now medical supplies in Clark Freeport Zone.

It started as an internet cafe in 2001 fully-owned by Kapampangan businessman Florante F. Sunga Jr., now President and Chief Executive Officer of LSG Industrial & Office Products, Inc.

To reach a wider market, the then-internet cafe expanded to become "the reliable procurement partner" for various companies in the country.

From hard to find cutting edge tools and equipment to hardware products, packaging materials and school supplies, LSG has it all.

Through the years, LSG has built and continues to build its portfolio of international and local suppliers.

To name a few of the brand partners, there is Tiger-Vac, a well-known industrial vacuum manufacturer; and 3M Philippines, premier provider of safety gears, industrial adhesives, abrasives and cleaning materials.

LSG brand partners also include Goldtouch, an ergonomic brand from the USA for computer peripherals; Mindman, a Taiwanese and of top-class brand for pneumatics; and Elkay a world class provider of drinking solutions made in the USA.

At present, LSG is supplying over a thousand companies from different industrial sectors.

Over the years, LSG has made milestones of innovations with the sole purpose to serve our customers better.

In 2015, they have built their very own LSG building improving their facilities in terms of office and warehouse, enhanced their operating system powered by SAP Business One in 2017, and when it comes to maintaining customer engagement, LSG utilized the use of Cloud based app named Salesforce last year, 2019.

This year 2020, LSG is once again expanding by turning their building to a two-storey one for additional workspace and storage.

"When customers deal with LSG, we make sure that our clients will be provided with 100 percent satisfaction. To do that, first, we follow a 24-hour response policy; second, we provide only top quality supplies; and good customer service," Costales said.

To ensure customer satisfaction, LSG boasts its team of competent, dedicated and skilled professionals.

LSG team members undergo comprehensive product training and seminars, so customers can be assured that they are dealing with the right person who can help in fulfilling their projects by means of having the most cost-effective solutions.

Giving back to the community

With its successful growth for the past 19 years, LSG donated PPEs to the Office of the Vice President Leni Robredo.

LSG President and CEO Florante F. Sunga Jr. personally handed over boxes of N95 masks, googles, and suits to Vice President Robredo.

According to Costales, Sunga made the donation "during the time when PPEs are very hard to source and LSG acted or responded to to the challenge of one of our national heroes General Antonio Luna which is, 'Bayan or sarili.'"

"We chose our country. We hope everyone will do it especially those who are capable to help either from their own pocket or government budget. Our goal as a company has always been to be able to provide people with essential needs for work and safety," Costales added.

"Little did we know that our line of business would be truly instrumental in helping aid the need particularly in the healthcare industry. With such undertaking, in as much as we can, we wanted to be able to help those in need of medical supplies which are essential especially for our front liners," he shared.

In a social media post, VP Robredo told Sunga that, "Hulog ka ng langit!" for his donations which medical front liners in the country need the most.

"We never opted to be in the limelight, but words of encouragement and thanks truly made us feel that whatever we did made a little difference in the life of those who needed it during this time of crisis," Costales said.

LSG has also made PPE Donations made to Philippine Red Cross Pampanga Chapter; Philippine General Hospital; Capitol Medical Center; Clark Development Corporation; JBLRMMC; East Avenue Medical Center - Department Of Ophthalmology; Pampanga Mayor's League; and the Municipality of Sto. Tomas.
