Congressman Neal and aide, William Tranghese, were involved in early discussions establishing Excel Dryer as an essential manufacturer, whose hand dryers play a critical role in achieving proper hand hygiene;  thoroughly washing and completely drying hands are listed as the top defense against the spread of germs, like Coronavirus and COVID-19 by both the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With the help of the Congressman’s office, the mobile product came into being, and is now helping keep first responders safe at mobile testing sites, with future installations throughout the state and country planned in the coming months.


Excel has offered to donate one hundred XLERATORs with HEPA Filtration Systems to facilities across the state.
