Louisville, KY (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
With HAI’s (hospital-acquired infections) at epidemic levels across the country and bacteria-related concerns growing in medical facilities of all kinds, it’s no wonder that demand for products featuring CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper touch surfaces is growing in every corner of the healthcare field and beyond.
For Just Manufacturing, Inc., an 80-year-old manufacturer of plumbing fixtures that recently began offering a line of CuVerro-plated sinks and related fixtures, that demand translates into the most promising kind of growth opportunity. While known primarily for hospital installations, Just’s products are also heavily specified for assisted living facilities, academic environments, and a variety of buildings in institutional and other public settings.
The company’s initial offering of CuVerro products includes patient suite lavatory sinks, scrub sinks, nurses’ hand washing stations, sensor faucets, and a variety of related fixtures. All are made with CuVerro’s exclusive antimicrobial copper-nickel alloy surfaces, which, lab tests have shown, eliminate 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours of exposure. What’s more, the surfaces are extremely durable and their antimicrobial characteristics never lose strength or effectiveness over time.
CuVerro Business Development Director Peter Gude sees tremendous potential for more CuVerro products from Just Manufacturing as the demand for antimicrobial copper expands beyond the healthcare field. “Of course, we’re committed to building an actionable suite of innovative products for the healthcare market,” Gude said, “but we believe that’s just the beginning.
“The benefits of CuVerro touch surfaces are clear for public facilities of all types and sizes, and it’s our goal to realize those benefits as fully as possible,” he continued. “We see Just Manufacturing as a key strategic partner with whom CuVerro can work to achieve that goal.”
CuVerro is an Olin Brass company wholly owned by GBC Metals, Inc. and the world leader in providing antimicrobial copper surfaces for product manufacturers serving the healthcare, education, hospitality, and select other industries.
