“Acuva’s world leading expertise in UV-LED disinfection technology and LightProgress’s strong presence and solid foundation in Italian markets, will be hugely beneficial for both companies and European markets and customers,” said Giulia Santi, CEO of Light Progress.
Acuva is best known for its UV-LED disinfection technology called IntenseBeam, which is found in all its water applications.
In response to the novel Coronavirus, Acuva rallied its expert team of R&D scientists and engineers to design and begin development of a UV-LED disinfection handheld device—which can eliminate pathogens in real-time.
