The Montreal-based company CAE has entered into an agreement with the American company PYURE to assemble its anti-COVID-19 air fresheners.
CAE will also work with this manufacturer and retailer of commercial air purifiers to create the next generation of products using PYURE’s technology and plans.
“The contract with PYURE will allow us to keep jobs in the manufacturing sector in Montreal while continuing to play a role in the fight against the pandemic,” said Marc Parent, President and CEO of CAE. We were awarded this contract mainly because of the know-how we have acquired in developing CAE Air1 respirators as well as the ISO 13485: 2016 certification for the design, manufacture and distribution of medical devices that we obtained in the month latest.”
Under this agreement, CAE expects to produce 55,000 units in the first year.
PYURE air fresheners are sold to hospitals, medical and dental offices, senior care centers, high tech companies, and schools in the United States.
“Unlike conventional air purifiers, our technology is not limited to the amount of air drawn into the unit,” said Jean-François Huc, CEO of PYURE.
“PYURE’s innovative patented technology replicates the way the sun’s rays cleanse the outdoor environment by safely generating hydroxyl radicals and organic oxidants and diffusing them indoors,” he added.
PYURE says its products are in high demand in the United States right now due to the pandemic. According to her, one of her air fresheners removes 99% of SARS-CoV-2 particles in the air within 20 minutes and no particles are detected in the air after 80 minutes. The American company also pointed out that this air freshener eliminates 99% of the virus in one hour and no particles are detected on the surfaces after three hours.
