Five years ago we ventured to the United States with the ambition of bringing EMist Electrostatic Sprayers to the European market. Electrostatics is not a new technology. It is a technology that has been around for decades in the automotive and agricultural industry and this technology was now being put to use in the infection prevention and control industry. We saw that spray and wipe were very much top of the list when it came to disinfection protocols which is an extremely inefficient and costly way of disinfecting surfaces. Not only was this method costly and time consuming but high touchpoint surfaces were not being covered fully. There was a need for change. A need for a more efficient and effective way of disinfecting high touch point surfaces. Admittedly, we faced faced many struggles and obstacles along the way but we knew that Electrostatics was the way forward. Change is something that does not come easy.
Fast forward 5 years and many hours of work spent educating individuals and organizations across multiple industries including Healthcare, Education, Sports, Aviation and Government on the need for change, the wheel has begun to turn. Covid-19 has shone a light on the need for change. Our aim is to build EMist products presence throughout Europe and the rest of the world as vital cog in breaking the chain of infection and providing individuals and organizations with a more cost effective and safer way of ensuring high touch point surfaces are free from harmful bacteria.
