From humble beginnings with the founding of a small advisory firm, ACLIV (Formerly NEOTENY) has grown to become a world class supplier in the antiviral solution industry.
How we got to where we are today
In 2012, Stewart Kim opened his first business in Seoul, offering consulting and advisory services that specialized in the chemical industry. His career in the British medical company and the listed American firm was a key asset to his business. NEOTENY have provided various types of consulting services to global companies that strictly require in-depth industry knowledge and analysis skills. That business eventually grew to include the manufacturing and export of specialty chemical products.
After almost 10 years of experience in the chemical industry and advanced research & development, ACLIV, which is a division for antiviral solutions, was founded in 2020 in NEOTENY. Since 2012, NEOTENY has carried out many global-scale advisory projects related to the key components of antiviral products. Seeking a solution to the virus issue, especially coronavirus, ACLIV turned the accumulated experience in the chemical and medical field into antiviral film products.
ACLIV is a today world-class antiviral solution provider with a full set of certificates and has global headquarters & manufacturing facilities in South Korea.
