Our Team

Our Founders

In 2010, in response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Polycare was founded. Dr. Gerhard Dust and Gunther Plötner were looking for a way to build affordable, durable and comfortable houses made of locally available (secondary) raw materials without the need for expensive equipment. This led to the foundation of our philosophy that we still inherit today and also to our beautiful headquarters in the middle of the Thuringian Forest.

If you want to read more about our history, feel free to dive through our blog posts from that time.
