OTTAWA — Design 1st, a product design-engineering firm, announced that it is supporting the need for clients seeking product design partners with experience in ultraviolet (UV) rays and other air and water purity technologies. With cleanliness standards integrating seamlessly into people’s lives, they are turning to products that help mitigate pathogens and support cleaner daily habits.

Design 1st is involved through all stages of the product design and development process. Design 1st reportedly balances a background in tech, product usability, materials and engineering with component supply risks, global manufacturing and diverse supply networks, to provide an end-to-end “idea to product” service. One area seeing design demand in 2022 is the ultraviolet (UV) sterilization market. According to a research report analyzing the UVC Disinfection Products Market Outlook from 2021-2031, sales are expected to reach $30B+ by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 15.2% over the period. With Design 1st’s technical skillset in air and water filtration and UV technologies, they have become an ideal partner for companies looking to bring disinfectant solutions to market for personal, batch and continuous cleaning applications. Three dimensional imagineering of air, water and light flow behaviors requires experience and advanced tools to design new products in the sterilization markets.

“The global pandemic has ignited a shift in how people interact with everyday objects throughout their daily routine, from the air they breathe in a room, to the devices and surfaces they touch, to the food and water they consume each day,” said Matt Bailey, VP, Engineering at Design 1st. “We’ve have been helping clients design and configure technologically challenging filtration and purification products for many years and it’s exciting for us to have the opportunity to tap into our deep experience in UV and fluid flow control to help turn these ideas into useful products for a variety of applications.”
