LANCASTER, PA — Paramount Management Group, one of the leading ATM operators in the United States and Puerto Rico, announced today it has begun applying the BIOPROTECTUs™ System to disinfect and protect its fleet of ATMs. Being used on its fleet of ATMs throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico, Paramount is the first large scale ATM operator to utilize environmentally responsible disinfectant and groundbreaking antimicrobial products.
Produced by biotech firm ViaClean Technologies, LLC, the BIOPROTECTUs System encompasses an array of EPA registered and FDA compliant technologies that disinfect and inhibit the growth and spread of problematic bacteria, fungi, algae, mold and viruses, as well as providing long-term antimicrobial protection for metal, plastic and textile surfaces. ViaClean’s pioneering and proprietary technologies, products and services provide antibacterial, antimicrobial, disinfectant and advanced odor control solutions for commercial, institutional and consumer use.
“The health, wellbeing and safety of our customers, clients and field technicians is our utmost priority,” said Paramount’s Chief Development and Marketing Officer Jorge Fernandez. “That’s why we made the decision to treat our ATM fleet with the BIOPROTECTUs System.”
Paramount expects to complete the initial application of the BIOPROTECTUs System by April 15 and reapply the product every 90 days, or sooner if warranted, in order to actively protect and inhibit the growth and spread of harmful bacteria and viruses.
“Right now, we are living through a period of uncertainty, with cardholders unsure of the safety of payment devices because of the possible transmission of COVID-19. Through the application of this system, we aim to diminish some of those fears by providing access to ATMs that have been disinfected and protected against viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae and mold,” continued Fernandez.
An integral component in the BIOPROTECTUs system is BIOPROTECT™, a groundbreaking, water-based antimicrobial product, that when applied to both porous and non-porous surfaces creates a highly durable protective shield that provides long-term antimicrobial protection that prevents the growth and spread of problematic bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae and mold.
Extensive laboratory testing has established that the System quickly eliminates and provides long-term eradication and suppression of microorganisms that can cause viruses. Additional testing will soon begin, under the auspices of the world renowned Global Virus Network, at two of the organization’s Centers of Excellence to confirm the efficacy of the product on COVID-19.
“We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with one of the leading ATM deployers in the United States, especially given their unwavering commitment to the health and wellbeing of their clients, team members and their industry leading safety standards,” said Jim Young, chairman and CEO of ViaClean Technologies. “Prevention is crucial at this time, and BIOPROTECTUs is the first system on the market that disinfects and protects against the spread of bacteria, mold and viruses.”
Young continues, “we welcome Paramount as the newest member of our ViaClean Technologies family and will work together to create an even safer environment for ATM users and their staff.”
