About Sporicidin®

Sporicidin® International was founded over 30 years ago in Rockville, Maryland as a manufacturer of disinfectants and cold sterilants for the medical, dental, hospital, critical environments, and mold remediation markets. On February 8, 2008, Contec, Inc. purchased the substainial assets of Sporicidin International. Contec is a leading global manufacturer of presaturated wipes, mopping systems, and specialty cleaning supplies for the pharmaceutical, industrial, and healthcare markets.

Contec CEO Jack McBride states that "The Sporicidin product line has outstanding disinfection claims with an excellent safety profile. Contec has a track record of taking good technology platforms and growing them into extensive product lines in many markets. We are excited by the capability of this product line to offer our customers valuable solutions to some of their toughest disinfecting problems."

Sporicidin was founded by Dr. Robert Schattner, who invented Chloraseptic®, the sore-throat medicine used throughout the world. McBride said that "Dr. Schattner is a brilliant man who enjoys being creative and coming to work every day. The Contec team is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him on a regular basis."
