The world would be a better place if we can invent smarter ways to slow the spread of illness-causing microbes.
At Vyv, that’s our mission.
Designing for a Cleaner World
At Vyv, it all started with a bright idea stemming from an all too common personal experience with germ challenges. Our CEO, Colleen Costello, experienced her grandmother contract an unexpected and preventable MRSA infection in a hospital during what was supposed to be routine single night stay. After deep research and review of the underlying challenges and limitations causing these significant issues, it became apparent that this was not an isolated incident. She and a team of engineers turned their attention to developing smarter ways to manage bacteria levels and subsequently developed Vyv’s proprietary continuous antimicrobial light technology.
What has emerged from this bright idea are new ways to apply antimicrobial light, which also provides high quality illumination, in a way that can overcome the limitation of common intermittent cleaning options. As from day one, our team remains dedicated and focused on ways to make our world a cleaner and safer place in planet-friendly ways. To make this mission a reality, we surround this proprietary light with innovative thinking and real-world experience, valuable services and an unsurpassed commitment to those customers and partners who are helping us design for a cleaner world.
Behind every engineering challenge stands a team of extraordinary people, each of whom takes this mission to heart. We are building a company and a culture that understands each new application, environment and customer is unique. We want to be certain that this is felt through every touch from Vyv.
