Midland, MI (PRWEB) January 17, 2007
AEGIS Environments, developers of the AEGIS Microbe Shield, celebrates 15 years of providing premier antimicrobial protection to the buildings and textile industries. During this time, ÆGIS grew from a regional company to a global service company providing unparalleled antimicrobial technologies and services to the building, construction and textile industries.
Since its inception in 1991, owners W. Curtis White and Hal "Scotty" Locker have positioned ÆGIS Environments as the world leader in antimicrobial technologies with support centers in every region of the globe. The AEGIS Microbe Shield technology licenses Dow Corning Corporation to manufacture this antimicrobial agent within a silane coating. Because the agent affixes to the target surface and does not dissipate or drain away, it won't lose strength over time and does not cause the development of new, resistant microbes.
Positioned as THE eco- and human friendly antimicrobial on the market, the AEGIS Microbe Shield has been used safely and effectively for more than 30 years on textiles such as socks, underwear, and athletic wear, to foams, medical products, construction materials and household care products. Building treatment uses extend to homes, hospitals, schools, offices, and professional athletic turfs and facilities.
In 2006, AEGIS Environments was recognized as one of the "Michigan 50 Companies to Watch," an awards program sponsored by the Edward Lowe Foundation and the Michigan Economic Development Center.
"The success of AEGIS has been driven by a quality product connected to great services like laboratory research, outstanding global logistics, and unsurpassed technical and regulatory support." said Curtis White, CEO and Director of Research and Development.
In a presentation on December 21, 2006 twenty-five employees presented owners Curtis White and Hal "Scotty" Locker with awards of recognition for their 15 years of service and perseverance in building a brand and company that is considered to be the highest standard of antimicrobial technology in the industry.
