Tender Corporation’s New State-of-the-Art Headquarters Meets Growing Demand for Insect Repellent

Littleton, New Hampshire (May 10, 2016) – With the recent buzz around increased cases of insect borne illnesses like the Zika Virus, people are purchasing more insect repellent and stores are working to keep up with this increased demand. Tender Corporation, makers of insect repellents such as Natrapel and Ben’s, recently moved to its new 117,250 sq. ft. world headquarters where they are housing expanded production facilities and management offices. This new state-of-the-art facility is allowing Tender Corp. to quickly manufacture product and keep up with the growing demand.

“People are stocking up on insect repellent and we expect them to purchase even more as mosquito and biting insect season peaks,” said Jason Cartwright, CEO of Tender Corporation. “Our new office space allows us to quickly turn around orders from our retail partners and provide consumers with insect repellent to protect them this season.”

Tender’s new facility meets or exceeds the FDA’s and the EPA’s (as well as their Canadian and European equivalents) requirements for not only the production of over the counter medications, medical Devices, and insect repellents, but also all local, state, and Federal requirements for storage, use, production, handling, and documented off-site waste disposal.

About Tender Corporation’s insect repellents:

Natrapel® insect repellent provides up to 12 hours of effective protection from ticks and mosquitoes. Natrapel utilizes the CDC-recommended formula, 20% Picaridin, for your protection. Natrapel is proven as effective as DEET and is completely safe on gear. It is available in a 6-ounce Eco-spray bottle (MSRP: $8.99) for the home or camping kit; and a 1-ounce ($MSRP: $3.99) size, which is great for travel or purses, pockets and packs.

Ben’s® 30 Tick & Insect Repellent 6-ounce Eco-Spray® (MSRP: $7.99) offers protection from ticks and insects that may carry ZIKA Virus, West Nile Virus, Lyme disease, Malaria, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and other infectious diseases. Providing up to 8 hours of effective protection, Ben’s 30’s unique formula is made to evaporate slowly – so repellent stays on longer with little absorption into the skin. The 6-ounce continuous spray bottle provides effortless, even application.

The Ben’s brand now offers a line of new Ben’s Headnets, with the Invisinet and Utranet. When the mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and other insects are attacking, Ben’s fine-weave UltraNet will keep even the tiniest of pests out and Ben’s Invisinet is so sheer that even the mosquitoes won’t see it coming! Both designed to seals out the bugs around your chest while allowing you to keep your shirt zipped down and open for maximum ventilation.
