Polycare was established in 2010 in response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti. The founders, Dr. Gerhard Dust and Gunther Plötner, aimed to develop a system that would enable individuals to construct affordable, long-lasting, and comfortable houses using readily available local materials without the need for heavy machinery.
Over time, we continuously improved our development process to align with ecological, economic, and regulatory goals. In 2019, we successfully launched our first production plant in Namibia through collaboration with local partners. In 2020, we focused on testing our product's readiness in other emerging markets while also preparing for our entry into the German market and building a strong global network. Now, in 2023, we are excited to introduce our fourth-generation circular masonry system, made from geopolymer concrete, in Germany. Our vision includes establishing a demonstration plant next year, and to expand our technology globally, commencing from mid-2024.
