Harris Technology sales Pro-Hygiene ASX HT8 facemasks hand sanitiser gels alcohol wipes
Harris Technology's Pro-Hygiene range has gained early traction with $1.05 million (unaudited) in sales for April 2020.

Consumer electronic goods supplier Harris Technology Group (ASX: HT8) has secured the non-exclusive Australian distribution rights for Tender Kiss alcohol wipes manufactured by Guangzhou Baihua Sanitary Products Co in China.

The wipes will be imported, with sales set to commence this month.

Harris is also registering the domain www.pro-hygiene.com.au. The distribution rights are ongoing with no specific termination date.

The wipes will join the Gotdya brand of hand sanitisers which will also be imported from China after Harris was appointed the Australian distributor by manufacturer Gotdya Fine Chemicals Co Ltd in April.

First shipment of 90,000 units is expected to be made available for sale later this month.

Sales success

News of the Tender Kiss distribution rights follows Harris’ reports of early sales success with its Pro-Hygiene range of personal hygiene products including face masks, hand sanitiser gels and alcohol wipes.

Unaudited sales revenue for the company’s information technology, consumer electronics and Pro-Hygiene divisions hit $2.72 million during April, compared to $3.4 million for the March 2020 quarter and $2.23 million in April-June 2019.

Of that total, unaudited April sales revenue for Harris’ IT/consumer electronics e-commerce business was $1.68 million, making it a “record breaking month”.

Meanwhile, April sales of Pro-Hygiene products totalled $1.05 million at a gross margin of 20%.

Looking ahead

Harris stated in its recent quarterly that it expects the June 2020 quarter to see an increase in revenue and improved margins compared to previous quarters.

With the world becoming increasingly digitised in recent months and the rise in teleconferencing, Harris is seeking to benefit with its range of IT hardware including monitors, webcams and headsets.

Meanwhile, the company stated that, “sales and opportunities are developing” with regards to its Pro-Hygiene line.

Harris said it would provide a profit guidance for the financial year ending 30 June 2020, in the coming weeks.

On the ASX, the company has recently gathered momentum, with its share price rising more than 377% in the past few months, largely due the success of its Pro-Hygiene range.

At mid-afternoon, shares in Harris were trading 43.33% higher at $0.043.
