Virox is on a mission to stop pathogen risk—for humans and animals—by developing the world’s safest, most effective, eco-friendly disinfectant chemistries.
As pathogens evolve and the need for disinfectants rises, we have maintained our mission to provide superior formulations that outperform harmful legacy chemistries. Through our commitment to research and development, our chemical engineering efforts deliver technologies that combine unmatched efficacy with application safety and environmental integrity to advance infection prevention and control best practices supporting a wide range of industries.
Our innovative disinfectant technologies are not only effective with an extraordinary safety profile, what truly sets them apart — and makes them Deliberately Different® — is their neutral impact on the planet. Virox formulations are made only using ingredients that are considered environmentally preferable and sustainable by Health Canada, the EPA, and the FDA’s GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) Act.
Virox is the first chemical manufacturer in Canada capable of not just developing EcoLogo® and Green Seal Certified products but of producing them in a LEED®-certified facility as awarded by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). Our 68,500+ square foot headquarters is recognized for its sustainability, energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and resource stewardship.
Research & Development
As a research-driven company, our Deliberately Different® approach lives at the core of our innovation practices. We push the status quo to find novel solutions that redefine disinfection.
Our multi-patented formulas are not mere substitutes for legacy disinfectant chemistries but game-changing technology platforms with demonstrable superiority and adaptability.
We design highly technical, state-of-the-art products that address the ever-changing landscape of infection prevention and biosecurity. By creating branded and private label products and partnering with market leaders, Virox Research & Development’s patented formulas reach an array of industries.
Virox is a full-service, ISO 9001, 14001, 13485, MDSAP standards and LEED® Gold Certified, Health Canada, FDA and EPA licensed manufacturer responsible for implementing and monitoring superior quality products and environmental systems. Whether we are manufacturing our own products, or providing custom manufacturing for one of our partners, quality is of utmost importance. That quality begins with scrupulous vendor selection, testing of incoming raw materials, ongoing employee training programs, continuous improvement, and testing of finished products – all in our 65,000 sq. ft manufacturing facility.
