Year founded:
1983
 
Number of employees: 85
 
Top official: James Seidel, CEO
 
Company description: Manufacturer and distributor of forensic evidence collection kits, first responder kits and crime scene investigation supplies
 
Target market: Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies
 
Company growth: “Tri-Tech Forensics began in Raleigh, manufacturing medical and laboratory equipment. Today we provide specimen collection, evidence collection, laboratory, digital forensics and first response products to a global customer base.”
 
How did you originally come up with the concept of your product? “Seeing a crisis in the lack of uniformity in forensics collection procedures and a need for structure and consistency when agencies worked together on investigations, Tri-Tech Forensics began developing forensic evidence collection kits, which today remain the gold standard in the industry.”
 
What are your future goals for the product? “We are continuously evaluating and updating our products, seeking innovative answers to developing needs. As new methodologies are discovered, our goal is to carefully incorporate them into our line, providing law enforcement agencies with the forensic products they require in our fast-paced world.”
 
Note: Tri-Tech was one of five North Carolina-based companies to receive the 2017 Governor’s Export Awards, and the company exports to nearly 50 countries, according to the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.

Year founded: 2018
 
Number of employees: 7
 
Top official: Sara Rose Harcus, founder
 
Company description: Dmanna is an infection prevention company focused on creating solutions that help lower hospital infection rates and combat antibiotic resistance.
 
Target market: Elder care facilities, SNFs, hospitals and other organizations that prioritize preventing infections for their patients, as well as individual consumers focused on managing their infections at home.
 
Company growth: “Immediately after Dmanna launched its award-winning consumer product in the U.S. market, international inquires poured in, specifically from Mexico where UTIs have increased over 500 percent in six years. Dmanna is now providing products to Mexican doctors and health care facilities thanks to the help of Robbie McEwen, Dmanna’s international operations advisor.”
 
How has your product helped impact the region’s economic development? “The founders decided to move Dmanna’s operations from San Francisco to Wilmington during their launch. Since then, Dmanna has worked with local companies such as CAP3 and SME while selling products nationally and internationally. Dmanna continues to utilize local resources and meet with regional health leaders to work towards our shared goal of leading innovation for infection prevention.”
 
How did you originally come up with the concept of your product? “UTIs are the most common bacterial infection affecting 250M people annually. After enduring recurrent UTIs for 10 years, Sara Rose leveraged her entrepreneurial experience and chemistry degree from UNCW to research and productize a compound that was shown to prevent up to 85 percent of UTIs and bring it to market for herself and her fellow UTI sufferers.”
