When it has to be Perfectly Clean
For nearly 50 years, critical cleaning is all MicroCare does. Whether it’s a PCB in a defense satellite, a connection in a fiber optic network, a metal aircraft engine part, a heart monitor sensor, or intricate surgical instruments, all must be critically clean to work without fail. MicroCare formulates, manufactures, and distributes high-purity fluids to clean those parts we rely on to perform flawlessly every day. Because when it can’t just be clean, it must be perfectly clean. 

Our Founding
Since its founding in October 1983, MicroCare has grown from humble beginnings into a trusted world-class company with facilities and distribution centers across the United States, Europe, and Asia.
It's been an incredible journey since our founder, Chris Jones, first started the company with a single aerosol filling line. MicroCare has come a long way since those early days while still maintaining its commitment to product quality, customer service, integrity and continuous innovation.

Modest Beginnings
Since its modest beginnings in a 10,000 square foot facility in Bristol, CT, MicroCare has steadily grown over the decades into a global enterprise. Today, the company comprises state-of-the-art production facilities, distribution centers, and international sales offices spanning three continents. 

Major milestones for MicroCare over the past four decades include:

  • The establishment our pioneering Critical Cleaning Lab in 2007 to ensure the highest standards of quality control and customer support
  • The opening of strategically located distribution centers in the U.S., Europe and Asia to provide superior customer service
  • Our acquisition by Heartwood Partners to allow us to continue to deliver the high-qulaity products, technical servcie and lab support  our customers expect from us
  • The acquisition of Certol International (now known as MicroCare Medical) and ICT (Infection Control Technologies) to expand its production capabilities, and continually developing cutting-edge cleaning, coating, and lubrication fluids
