Rob Kissick said: "Using our experience of running large procurement buying groups, and working in partnership with international procurement agents, Crown Agents, we are procuring supplies of PPE which support churches without impacting on the supply to the NHS.
"In addition to these two national organisations, our buying group is available to charities, care homes, the wider health sector and the wider business sector as we seek to support the Welsh economy and cornerstones of society in preparing for re-opening in the coming weeks and months."
He added: "2buy2 is supporting clients in the procurement of PPE by providing expertise in international sourcing and delivery of high quality, inspected goods.
"We will be running a number of buying groups over the coming weeks to support businesses, charities and others."
Organisations have until 11 June to place orders for PPE, cleaning and hygiene product to ensure supply and bulk buying prices.
