Led by an experienced management team, HeiQ rapidly researches new solutions for partners, quickly delivers scaled up manufacturing from its sites across the world and helps partners market the product to end consumers ? aiming for lab to consumer in a matter of months.

HeiQ?s latest innovation ? HeiQ Viroblock ? is an award-winning antimicrobial technology which helps in the fight against enveloped viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing COVID-19). This technology is already being used by more than 150 major brands such as Burberry.



The Company?s aim is to deliver growth for its shareholders by driving increased sales of HeiQ?s core products and by entering additional lucrative markets through disruptive innovations:

Increasing market penetration of core innovations, including HeiQ Fresh AIR (developed for a leading Swedish home furnishing retailer); HeiQ Smart Temp (used by Japan?s biggest casual wear retailer and American clothing brand, Hanesbrands, Inc.) and HeiQ Clean Tech (winner of the Swiss Environmental Award in 2019).

Building on the significant momentum achieved by HeiQ Viroblock: developing HeiQ?s licensing and royalty business, which will see the brand name HeiQ Viroblock licensed together with the technology to third parties in return for royalty payments.

Developing new disruptive innovations: numerous projects in the R&D pipeline, including HeiQ GrapheneX for industrial filtration. The industrial filtration market was over $29 billion in 2020 - CAGR of 6.9% from the period of 2020 to 2025.

These have grown 17% in the first half of the year and, in parallel, we have entered lucrative new markets with additional innovations.?

HeiQ Chief Financial Officer Xaver Hangartner added, ?The antimicrobial market, which has grown into a mainstream request, also presents a compelling growth opportunity going forward. The launch of HeiQ Viroblock more than doubled HeiQ?s revenue in the first half of 2020.
