Verona, WI â€” PLAYTEC™ LLC, announces a new partnership with Commercial Recreation Specialists (CRS), a leading commercial recreation company, to distribute their line of unique, proprietary antimicrobial products designed specifically for the worldwide recreation industry. With over a billion visitors to indoor and outdoor recreation facilities each year, PLAYTEC understood the importance of developing products and protocols specifically for this market. 

Created by industry leaders in biochemistry, along with experts in recreation management and operations, PLAYTEC antimicrobial technologies have the unique ability to sanitize and inhibit the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms through its’ proprietary technology. Unlike traditional antimicrobials, their EPA-registered technology offers a protectant feature; the solution binds to surfaces creating a microbiostatic antimicrobial coating which serves as a highly durable, protective shield for long-term protection. This reduces the need for frequent, time-consuming cleaning tasks, saving time and money, while simultaneously protecting guests and the greater community.

“We are excited to partner with CRS, one of the leading commercial recreation companies in the world”, says Tony Brennan, Director of Development at PLAYTEC. “Their insight and knowledge of the industry has been instrumental to us in the engineering of specific formulas and protocols designed for both land-based and water-based recreation products and facilities.”

Available in two proprietary formulas – RECRESOL™ and AQUSOL™, PLAYTEC serves both indoor and outdoor recreation facilities and aquatic environments and are available in a range of formulas to meet various protection levels and environment types.

“From the very first moment that the coronavirus hit the USA, our clients started to reach out and ask what they should do”, says Ron Romens, CEO of CRS. “We knew that the industry was going to change overnight, and we decided to be proactive and find a solution to help our recreation partners. With short seasons, and a variety of logistical challenges, we realized how important it was for our clients to be able to open their businesses and generate revenue.” Romens adds, “Our search led us to PLAYTEC, whose team of product engineers and patented-biochemists listened to our challenges and came up with solutions that we feel will innovate sanitation protocol in the recreation industry.”

Available exclusively through CRS, PLAYTEC offers recreation professionals next-generation technology that provides both sanitation and protection up to 60 days, enhancing safety and improving productivity.
