Superbug killing products company Germ Warfare has moved to the Isle of Man recently after being offered extensive grants.
Germ founder Paul Ward, who impressed James Caan on Dragon’s Den so much that he offered to invest, will see up to 40% of his capital investment, property and marketing expenses paid for this year.
He said: “The Isle of Man (government) are also fantastic. It’s 100% the grants from them to help us set up. Research and development and marketing; everything a small business would need they have offered to us.”
Germ Warfare is setting up its sales operations on the island and plans to relocate its new product development and its manufacturing.
Germ has developed a range of cleaning products that kill harmful bacteria including c.difficile spore, MRSA, swine flu at hand temperature and without the use of chemicals that can cause irritation to the skin.
Launched in January 2008 the company sold £500,000 worth of cleaning agents into doctor surgeries, large employers like Royal Bank of Scotland, and online shoppers.
This is a positive direction for the killing of superbugs and what we think is a worthy investment for the Isle of Man.
