Leading supplier of personal protective equipment, Urgent Response Network, partners with mexico-based company for expansion

Urgent Response Network Announces Newest Partnership with Co-Founder of Ecoshell to Launch Mexico Expansion, Naming Carlos Camacho as Managing Director

Leading nationwide supplier of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Urgent Response Network, announces newest partnership with Mexico-based Ecoshell, to launch Urgent Response Network Mexico. Ecoshell provides environmentally biodegradable products such as plates, straws and cups while also supplying material for major companies in Mexico including Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Corona, Grupo, Bimbo, Soriana, HEB and other international brands. With this partnership, Urgent Response Network is able to source high quality PPE for their U.S. clientele including state governments, hospital systems and other entities.


“This partnership with Carlos Camacho and Ecoshell, paired with our combined expertise in manufacturing, logistics and finance, strengthens our goal to be recognized as the world’s most trusted and reliable supplier of PPE,” said Brent Skoda, Chairman and Co-Founder of Urgent Response Network. “The Ecoshell partnership brings an additional 125 personnel to our PPE solution and allows us to build out substantial teams in sales, sourcing, quality control, legal, regulatory compliance and customs, on the ground in Mexico.”

Urgent Response Network is working to assist governments, health systems and businesses gain access to critical medical supplies amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Urgent Response Network previously announced a partnership with eShipping extending their 350 personnel to help manage the complex supply chain logistics involved at each step. eShipping has a deep technology infrastructure that allows Urgent Response Network customers to see exactly where their PPE order is, from raw material procurement to manufacturing to delivery, creating total transparency with their clients.


With the significant global infrastructure Ecoshell had acquired with Pablo Peralta, along with the integration of logistics through eShipping, Urgent Response Network grows their PPE personnel to more than 500. The recent United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) allows Urgent Response Network to source quality products with minimal geopolitical risk, creating jobs at a time of shrinking global economies.

“I am very excited to be named Managing Director of Urgent RN Mexico. The work they are doing in the U.S. has proven to be monumental in assuring PPE gets in the hands of those who need it most,” said Carlos Camacho, Co-Founder of Ecoshell. He continues, “We are confident that this strategic partnership will only accelerate the work both companies are doing.”
