History

Polygiene was established in 2006 through a spin-off from the Perstorp Group. Some important milestones to date are shown below.

The Company develops and sells permanent odor control primarily to the textile industry (premium clothing brands), but also sells antibacterial solutions adapted for use on other types of surfaces. The technology was originally developed in the early 2000s to create antibacterial surfaces on various plastic materials and industrial flooring. Efforts to develop additional applications for other antibacterial surfaces have continued over the years, and products now also include applications for sanitary products, other flooring types and paint.

The technology for odor control for textiles was developed around 2007–2008 and has in recent years experienced rapid growth, especially in sportswear and sporting goods. Polygiene currently supplies its products and solutions to approximately 100 leading clothing brands, or brand partners, and Polygiene works continually to gain new ­customers.
