Polycare was founded in 2010 as a result of the earthquake disaster in Haiti. The two founders Dr. Gerhard Dust and Gunther Plötner were looking for a system that would enable people to build affordable, durable and comfortable houses themselves using the simplest local materials and not requiring heavy equipment.
The company iterated its development over time to meet ecological, economical and regulatory targets. In 2019 the first production plant was successfully opened in Namibia. 2020 was the year to drive the expansion into the emerging markets and to prepare the German market entry with the focus on the rising circular economy ecosystem as Polycare received the building permit in Germany.
