PPE Products Sourcing

Sign up and get competitive pricing and stock availability from vetted suppliers.

Crayfish provides an online platform, the “Crayfish® Marketplace” where businesses who require provision of certain goods and/or services, and service providers who can meet such requirement can connect and transact with each other. 

We would like to put our online platform technology to good use during these unprecedented times, and therefore have added sourcing of PPE products /services onto our online Marketplace, by making the whole procurement of these products easier, safer for businesses,  especially if the volume is not large enough to justify sourcing directly from factories.  

None of the products available via our suppliers was intended for medical use, and as such have not been sourced at the expense of any medical practices.
  

Available Products

 

3-ply Facemasks

Hand Sanitiser

N95 Facemasks
