Polygiene today announced a strategic partnership with Fogni Co., Ltd., the Republic of Korea’s leading manufacturer of functional, environment friendly fiber filling for home textiles and furniture as well as bedding for use at home, hospitals and hotels.

The alliance combines Polygiene’s expertise in odor control technology with Fogni’s market-leading manufacturing processes to deliver safe, antibacterial and odor-free fiber filling to a broad range of home textiles, bedding and furniture manufacturers to meet South Korea’s growing consumer and commercial demand for healthier mattresses and home furnishings.

Our collaboration with Polygiene will help make the homes of our customers healthier places to live.”

“Our partnership with Fogni broadens Polygiene a foothold in the home textiles, hospitals, hotels for bedding, and furniture market,” says Christian von Uthmann, CEO, Polygiene. “We look forward to continued cooperation to introduce odor-free filling for an even wider range of home furnishings, large and small – from mattresses and sofas to comforters and cushions.”
