“The capabilities and culture of MPE are a natural fit for Vioguard,” according to Larry Ranta, President and CEO of Vioguard. The Kirkland, Washington-based technology company has created a self-sanitization platform, including the only FDA cleared self-sanitization keyboard and mouse solution, using ultraviolet light. The solution can dramatically reduce healthcare acquired infections (HAIs), as well as infections contracted outside of healthcare environments.
“This technology has the potential to save hundreds of thousands of lives around the world and improve health for millions more” said Gary Les, President and CEO of MPE. Mr. Les leads a company-wide focus on Innovation, striving to support it throughout all levels of the organization. “We are excited to work with Vioguard and their leading-edge infection prevention technology.”
Mr. Ranta said that “MPE not only has the resources necessary to support Vioguard’s immediate and long-term needs, but more importantly, are aligned with our vision, values and phased growth strategy. In addition, they have strategic partnerships that can accelerate Vioguard’s growth in other key markets including airports, hotels, schools, cruise ships, and others.”
Vioguard expects its products to be released into the marketplace within the 3rd quarter of this year.
