Nick Jaksa, Founder of Integrated Operations LLC, has made his mark in the area of safety with over three decades of diverse experience incorporating product development, testing and production. Today he’s applying that expertise to improving the health and safety of the public during the pandemic through his Viral Defense branded product line. The company’s unique disinfectant misting systems mitigate the spread of germs thus improving safety for people entering buildings, schools, sports arenas and other venues. The same innovative misting concept can be used to clean interior spaces in a matter of minutes. The Viral Defense product portfolio also includes innovative PPE’s including anti-viral layered masks, and other products to provide protection.
Mr. Jaksa’s interest in improving safety for everyone began over 30 years ago in many aspects of the automotive industry, including as a seat belt engineer, and an expert witness in cases involving auto safety. More recently he was involved with car seat design and manufacturing to improve safety for babies and toddlers. Among the companies with which he has worked are Allied Signal/Honeywell, Siemens and Bosch, in the U.S. and internationally. In response to the global pandemic, Mr. Jaksa has tapped into his international technology and manufacturing relationships to find best-in-class disinfecting and personal protection solutions to help mitigate the spread of germs. By the end of 2020, however, manufacturing of the misting units and select PPE’s will have begun moving to the U.S.
In addition to his hands-on experience in the automotive sector, Mr. Jaksa heads a team of Integrated Operations professionals who leverage tools such as the Toyota Production Management System principles of lean manufacturing and continuous improvement, and other proven tools that encompass problem analysis and resolution, all allowing for operational and organizational optimization.
