PETERBOROUGH, N.H., Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SoClean, the CPAP sanitizing device company, today announced that it has been named by Deloitte as one of America's fastest growing technology companies. SoClean ranked as number 54 on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™ and grew revenues by 2,805 percent. This ranking considers the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America.
"We are honored to be recognized by Deloitte for the remarkable growth we have achieved in recent years as we serve a robust and continuously growing number of CPAP patients in the U.S. and Europe," said Robert Wilkins, CEO of SoClean. "I am proud of the continuous dedication of our team, and I want to thank our loyal customers who continue to use our products and services. SoClean remains dedicated to raising public awareness of sleep apnea and other sleep breathing disorders, which often go undiagnosed and untreated."
CPAP equipment requires frequent cleaning, as side effects of CPAP bacteria can include sinus infections, odor and skin irritation. In addition to suffering from sleep breathing disorders, patients have traditionally struggled with cumbersome and unsatisfactory CPAP cleaning practices that worsen patient health. Consequently, SoClean has adapted a quick, easy and safe process using activated oxygen—ozone—that has been shown to destroy up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in the mask, hose and reservoir of CPAP equipment.
"SoClean believes CPAP cleaning should be simple and should only make patients feel better," said Wilkins. "SoClean's rapid growth—today recognized by Deloitte—is attributable to the recognition among CPAP patients that our products offer a quicker, easier and most importantly, safe alternative to traditional cleaning methods."
SoClean is the CPAP sanitizing device company that sanitizes the CPAP mask, hose and reservoir without the need for disassembly, water or harsh chemicals. Improperly cleaned CPAP equipment is filled with harmful device bacteria and germs that can make people very sick when breathed into their body. Unlike the traditional soap and water cleaning approach, SoClean's natural approach to CPAP sanitizing kills 99.9% of bacteria and germs, which leads to a healthier breathing experience.
