Antibacterial specialist Stayzon set to expand internationally
Fresche Bioscience has signed an agreement to support manufacture of Stayzon’s range of antimicrobial coatings and ancillary treatments — an agreement that is expected to enable cost-effective global distribution of the company’s Stayzon Skin products.
Available in Australian retail outlets, the Stayzon Skin range of antimicrobial sanitisers is now attracting attention in the global personal hygiene market — a sector estimated to reach sales of $1.8 billion annually by 2023. Stayzon is in final-stage discussions with pharmacy groups in Asia regarding production distribution rights.
“Australian consumers have swiftly adopted our first release, and to break into highly competitive international markets it was necessary to find the right partner with established regulatory approvals and the intellectual property to work with us on further development,” said Stayzon CEO Chris Plastow.
“Fresche Bioscience Australia are indisputably the global leaders in the application of the lysis technology and hold the approvals required for our international expansion, including but not limited to Europen BPR, REACH and OEKOTEX. The partnership also enables us to purchase raw materials at highly competitive rates, allowing Stayzon to compete effectively in price-driven global markets.
“It’s extremely pleasing that our Australian products are achieving global recognition and we are preparing to recruit more staff in our Sydney office as we scale up to meet demand.”
Stayzon Australia recently launched what is claimed to be the world’s first wet-wipe product that delivers 24-hour antibacterial protection on human hands — and seven-day active protection on hard surfaces — with a single application.
The company has also signed a major distributor in Europe to sell its automotive hygiene system (Stayzon Surface & Air) — a technology that forms an invisible barrier on all interior surfaces of a vehicle and its air-conditioning system, immediately sanitising and eliminating harmful microbes and bacteria. The system has already been adopted by over 300 automotive dealer groups in Australia, including two large OEMs.
Stayzon parent company Permagard recently secured its own partnership in the Asian aviation market with consultancy and services company RISE Aerospace, which will offer Permagard Aviation’s antimicrobial shield for aircraft interiors and protective exterior coating for aircraft exteriors.
