More than 5+ million consumers catch the Sanidoor wave

Posted by Jason Mudd

L. Gale Lemerand, a serial entrepreneur from Daytona Beach, Fla., hired Axia Public Relations to promote his invention: a touch-free door-opening system for public restrooms. Sanidoor’s goal was to educate consumers and businesses about the product and how it could reduce the spread of germs in public places like restaurants, hospitals, libraries and other high-traffic areas. Axia launched a PR campaign throughout 

the United States, Canada and beyond through which it earned countless media mentions that brought

 Sanidoor new customers, distributions and partners. Coverage of Sanidoor reached more than five million consumers and decision-makers, including earning mentions on nearly every ABC network affiliate.
