Leaders in UVC
Dimer has been a leader in UVC innovation since 2012; Dr. Arthur Kreitenberg, an orthopedic surgeon, was inspired to start the company after attending his daughter’s club volleyball match during the 2009 H1N1 outbreak. It was there he noticed players were instructed not to shake hands in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus, yet all the players touched the same volleyball.
Inspired by the utilization of UV disinfection deployed in his operating rooms, Dr. Kreitenberg invented a device to rapidly disinfect sports balls, leveraging the same reliable germicidal lights with which he had become familiar in his medical practice. This invention quickly garnered attention and was later utilized in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. From there Dr. Kreitenberg quickly turned his attention to airplanes: the primary vector for the international spread of H1N1 and other germs.
Dr. K and his son, Elliot ‘Mo’ Kreitenberg, began to build different applications under patented designs that Dimer holds in the US, EU, and Japan.
Different areas of focus presented themselves, and varying levels of success were met with products such as the GermRover, for the International Space Station, and the GermNinja – a UVC disinfection solution for sports balls that a wide range of organizations adopted, from the USA Women’s Volleyball Team to the UCONN basketball teams.
With the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dimer began to garner significant attention from national media outlets such as Forbes, CNBC, etc.
Dimer has signed a strategic global partnership agreement with Honeywell with the goal of deploying Dimer’s revolutionary technology between each flight around the world while simultaneously scaling up manufacturing of our UVHammer product line – perfect for everything that doesn’t fly.
