CopperDisinfector (a UVC LLC company) is excited to announce that Douglas County awarded Founder and CEO Brad Hollander a 2020 Spotlight Award for his technological innovation and generosity.  Hollander developed and maintains an “Ozone Generator” that is currently being used by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.


This chemical-free disinfection technology is enhancing the department’s ability to disinfect vehicles and the jail, keeping staff healthy and limiting exposure to biohazards.  The Sheriff’s Office can now sanitize high-volume work areas to better keep deputies, inmates and members of the public as safe and healthy as possible.

About our Founder

Brad Hollander

Inventor and founder

UVC LLC’s Founder and Inventor of “UVC for HVAC”, Brad Hollander, has been the leading expert in germicidal disinfection products and systems for air, surfaces, and water since 1976. The inspiration behind his life-saving technologies is simple:

“The air you breathe and the surfaces you touch are making you sick.”

A world-renowned disinfection expert, inventor, designer, consultant and manufacturer, Brad’s expertise was most recently instrumental in finding safe, EPA-approved disinfection solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. From the medical industry, Department of Defense, transportation and healthcare industries, to the private workplace and everyday consumer, Brad and his team developed several new systems and strategies to mitigate the spread of the virus and diseases and ultimately, save lives.

Brad has founded several companies throughout his more than four decades in the disinfection industries. He founded UVC LLC™ in 1998 to continue developing, manufacturing, consulting and private labeling products for the UV and germicidal disinfection industries worldwide.

His expertise and innovation have influenced an array of businesses and the industry as a whole. He was appointed three times to the UL Regulatory Standards Committee, both as a voting member and committee chairman. He’s consulted with several Fortune 500 companies and helped businesses working in government, aerospace, food safety, COVID-19, emerging diseases, and the grow industry. Brad has also served as an expert witness in patent and product liability cases.

While other UV companies private label existing products and claim to be unique, cutting-edge innovation, invention and vertical integration are what set UVC LLC™ apart from the competition. Brad has several patents in the US and worldwide, developing products like UVC lamps and ballasts from scratch. It is the only way to guarantee the safest, most affordable, and most effective air disinfection products on the market.

In addition to “UVC for HVAC,” Brad also developed the patent-pending CopperDisinfector™ Touch Surface Disinfection System. The EPA-approved, green, long-lasting, and low-cost technology is chemical free and retrofittable to almost any surface. An industry first, it kills up to 99.9% of COVID-19, flus and colds, along with other common and emerging diseases.

Above all, Brad not only believes in the power and effectiveness of these disinfection technologies, he also believes it should be accessible and affordable to any businesses or individuals consumers who want it. He launched the “UV Copper Project” in 2021 as a way to further that mission and give back to the community. The project helps cover costs for critical businesses through special pricing, crowdfunding and community partnerships and Good Samaritans. Community service has always been at the core of UVC LLC’s passion and purpose, and always will be going forward.
