US Infection was founded after Dr. Brent Harris struggled to outfit his medical clinic with antimicrobial copper alloy products. After researching the bacterial killing benefits of copper and metals containing copper, he discovered new alloys like CuVerro, manufactured by Olin Brass. After locating the source of the alloy, he began to contact the various manufacturers that were utilizing the CuVerro alloys. He soon discovered that the antimicrobial copper products that he wanted to buy in order to help his patients and staff stay safer was comprised by only a small niche market lacking a central distributor or marketing consultant.
The idea that hospitals, physician's offices, and a variety of other public places could benefit from antimicrobial copper launched the US Infection company with the goal to "Create Safer Environments" across the United States.
