Roselle, Illinois-based commercial equipment and consumables distributor Jon-Don recently announced the purchase of a 53-foot trailer and RV that was made into a mobile disaster response unit (DRU). The DRU will connect restoration contractors in disaster areas with essential drying equipment, restoration chemicals and supplies, the company said.

The unit will be loaded with pallets of supplies, including air movers, dehumidifiers, poly sheeting, safety gear, antimicrobials and other critical products for professional restoration. The trailer has also been outfitted with a mobile POS system for fast and easy checkout, according to Jon-Don.

“In the restoration world, the enemy on every job site is time,” said Brad Hanson, Jon-Don vice president of product management and marketing at Jon-Don. “The longer structures remain untreated, the more dangerous the situation becomes. This mobile response unit will enable us to connect restoration contractors with the equipment and supplies they need within a matter of hours of arriving at a disaster site.”
