Polygiene was founded in 2006 as a spin-off from Perstorp Group and provides a treatment for textiles and other materials that ensures odour, bacteria and virus control. The company’s vision is to change the way we view products – from fast consumables to durables. Polygiene is the market-leading ingredient brand for stay-fresh solutions with significant brand awareness in the industries in which it operates. In partnership with premium brands, Polygiene delivers a product that is effective, safe to use, prolongs product life, contributes to a more sustainable lifestyle as well as a more profitable business for its partners.
The largest risk is related to the competitive landscape present in the market where current competitors could copy its business model to add value throughout the entire value chain. There are a number of actors that currently provide similar additives; two of them are European firms profiled as ingredient brands. There is also a risk that the solution Polygiene offers becomes a commodity, and that end-customers will expect the functionality without needing to pay a premium price tag for it.
