About us

We are UVIS UV-Innovative Solutions GmbH from Cologne. The idea to develop innovative disinfection solutions involving UV-light emerged during the school time of the two founders. In times of the swine flu Tanja and Katharina participated in a business competition with the task to develop a new product. The idea for ESCALITE, the disinfection module for the handrails of escalators, was born during this competition. This was followed by a successful patent application, grant of the patent and eventually the founding of the company in 2016.
