What our partners say

  • We launched our antimicrobial chair range initially to add a genuine USP to our customers, but quickly extended our ranges into tables and storage units. Our products are primarily used in schools where children's immune system has not quite developed fully, so our antimicrobial range not only benefits the pupils, but also the school, too. The expertise and advice given is streets ahead of the other antimicrobial companies that we contacted, plus we especially liked the excellent marketing support and documentation available via the partner portal.

  • We have incorporated the BioCote treatment into a range of our decorative sheet materials and have launched to the market under the brand dp-BioCote Quartz. Our customers are amazed by the performance of the product and we are active in a number of significant market areas.

  • In an environment where hygiene is critical and antimicrobial technology is standard in temperature measurement equipment it is reassuring for Comark and our customers to know we are working with the best. Not just a globally recognised brand, BioCote is proven effective against microbes that cause illness, spoil food and reduces the potential for cross contamination.
