IN A NUTSHELL
CuConcepts is a young and innovative company active in the hygiene segment, specialized in developing antimicrobial, copper-based solutions. We offer the essential hygienic upgrade to ensure the safety of customers and employees.
The problem we’re battling is the touch-based transmission of infections. Many high-touch surfaces are contaminated with microorganisms that carry bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites that lead to high infection rates.
For example, healthcare infections (an infection occurring in a patient during the process of care in a hospital) are impacting millions of people around the world. The World Health Organization has classified this phenomenon as an epidemic that will kill more humans in the next decade than cancer.
Also, in times of COVID-19, it has become more important than ever to keep the surfaces of our working and living environments clean. Antimicrobial solutions help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by killing pathogens in a matter of hours.
Our goal is to reduce the risk of infection through contaminated surfaces. We do this by offering solutions that make daily life more hygienic and, ultimately, protect humans from infections. We also make our solutions more accessible by ensuring cost-efficiency, flexibility, easy applications, and quick delivery.
Dennis Gerdts, a mechatronics student at the time, developed the first prototype of our solution. Copper is selected as the essential basic element. because of its antimicrobial properties. When applied, viruses, bacteria, germs, and fungi cannot survive on the surface. This effect has been known since the times of ancient Egypt and has been collecting dust since the invention of penicillin.
Marco Juelke and Dennis Gerdts join forces to create the first prototypes. The name and concept for CuCase, our solution for phone cases, was born. The ‘Cu’ stands for copper in the periodic table of the elements and is considered the essential symbol for our antimicrobial products.
Together with the Deggendorf University of Applied Sciences, the Founders‘ Campus, and ITC1, the first steps towards founding a company were taken.
At the beginning of 2020, the company CuConcepts was founded. Our Head of Strategy and Sales, Melina Gerdts, joined with the mission to build our B2B division. Giulio Maceratini joined the team to oversee market entry in one of our core markets, Italy. CuCase, CuContact and CuClear were entered into the trademark register. Various antimicrobial products were developed. Our products demonstrably contribute to the reduction of infections caused by viruses, bacteria, germs, and fungi.
Complementary to our growth, the legal entity of CuConcepts was changed to a GmbH. In summer, we introduced a new, more durable product category: the copper-based antimicrobial additive CopperBioCare, as result of our partnership with CopperBioHealth (CuBH).
