Gale Lemerand hired Axia Public Relations to promote his invention, Sanidoor, a touch-free public restroom door-opening system. Lemerand’s goal was to educate consumers and businesses about his product and how it could reduce the spread of germs in public places like restaurants, hospitals, libraries and other high-traffic retail areas. Axia jumped on board and launched a PR campaign throughout the United States, Canada and beyond. Through the duration of the campaign, Axia 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 a mention on nearly every ABC network affiliate.
