As demand for sustainable antibacterial and fast-drying fabric and surface finishes continues to grow, Fuze Biotech, is relocating its headquarters to a larger facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The new headquarters and production facility will increase production of the company’s gold-powered antibacterial solution ten-fold to meet exponential growth in demand.

“As brands increasingly look for sustainable, high-performance solutions, we are scaling up production to meet growing demand,” said Andrew Peterson, Fuze Biotech CTO. “Our new facility is state of the art and will help us better serve our expanding roster of sustainability-focused partner brands in North America and abroad.”

Fuze is widely used in a variety of markets, including bedding, footwear, apparel, hospitality and more, to keep fabrics and surfaces free from odour and disease-causing mould, bacteria and pathogens.

Applied as a light mist in a patented embedding process to a substantial number of materials – including textiles, hard surfaces, and even down insulation – Fuze leverages the natural antibacterial properties of gold particles to create a permanent treatment that fights odours, accelerates evaporation, and protects against UVA and UVB radiation.
