Benefits to your business


BioCote partners have successfully grown their business by increasing profit margins, winning new business & gaining market share.

Where other antimicrobial technologies may simply be a cost, BioCote is a low-risk investment upon which you can expect a return.

What our partners say

  • We chose to create an antimicrobial product to obtain a relevant competitor advantage in commercial applications (Hospitals, care homes etc.) with our wiring accessory industry. We chose Biocote as they were a recognised brand within our target market. Biocote had already undertaken a lot of awareness campaigns within the market, so it seemed an obvious choice.

  • Initially our customers were sceptical on how the technology worked and if it was proven but with the documentation provided this has helped give the customer confidence that it works in a true real-life environment based on testing as well as laboratory conditions. Using the well-recognised brand along with excellent technical and sales support enabled us to reach into other markets not otherwise available, such as healthcare.

  • BioCote provides our range of dog toys with an additional USP. Also, it helps to address concerns over germs which can be passed from pet to owner. We are all so aware of the threat of viruses and bacteria nowadays and we wanted to help families help prevent these being passed through their dog’s toys. After launching BioSafe Germ Smart Dog toys (which are manufactured with BioCote) we have had positive feedback from both our customers and the end consumer.
