Who We Are
We believe that it’s more than just products.
It’s understanding the mission requirements and then providing the best tools to achieve mission success.
Almost 20 years ago there were anthrax attacks in the US. The call for decontamination technology to counter the attack was issued. Industry answered by rapidly upgrading and adapting commercial technology to address the problem.
As a direct result, a team dedicated to addressing chemical and biological decontamination threats was established by an Ohio company.
This team developed numerous technologies including multiple generations of vaporized hydrogen peroxide decontamination systems to demonstrate efficacy, scalability, and dependability.
Today this team is the heart of M2DCON, and we continue to search for the best solutions for decontamination of chemical and biological threats.
