Markham-Based Mero Technologies’ Innovative Take on Washroom Cleanliness

Nathan Mah, Mero TechnologiesFounded by two Queen’s University grads, Mero Technologies has set out to change the way washroom facilities are managed, bringing data and analytics to massive property management companies.

MacDonald’s concept struck Mah as a simple solution in a space few technology companies were actually paying attention to. Plus, there was room to grow. “It was pretty odd for a company like Oxford with hundreds of facilities and assets and over billions of dollars in management to have the same cleaning record practice as a 7/11.” Mero Technologies was certain it could change that.

The pair brought the idea to a pitch competition before the school year was out, won it, and with a small amount of seed money in hand, started massaging the idea. It wasn’t long before they were validated.

They’ve since translated their success in Kingston to Toronto, moving into York University’s YSpace innovation centre in Markham. “The diversity of thought in YSpace is great – digital marketing agencies, clean tech, consumables, consumer products, IoT…” he says. “Talking about your company to all these people who aren’t in the same industry as you, makes you better at communicating.”
