These discussions are the culmination of many hours of hard work and cooperation on the part of both TOMI and Planet Innovation.
This new partnership offers an expansive wealth of opportunities to both TOMI and highly valued customers.

Stuart Elliott, co-CEO and co-founder of Planet Innovation, said: "TOMI is a great example of a manufacturer proactively looking to protect its supply chain by dual sourcing. The COVID pandemic has really shone a light on a lot of manufacturers" reliance on a single supplier or country. This is something TOMI recognised, and we're delighted they selected Planet Innovation to be their global manufacturing partner. With SteraMist products currently in huge demand, our manufacturing team worked closely with TOMI to get the products into production in record time, shipping our first units two months after our first discussions."
