E-CO wins the ‘Non Domestic Retrofit Innovation of the Year’ award at Retro Expo 2012. Sponsored by the The British Property Federation, this Awards honor excellence in innovative retrofit non-domestic products and services.
Our product was praised and announced winner following a tough question and answer session by a ‘Dragon’s Den’ panel, all leaders in the sustainability and environment sector. The panel included: Munish Datta – Head of Plan A, Marks & Spencer and Ed Metcalfe – Director for Research and Business Development, Institute for Sustainability.
Winning the award, E-CO founder, Hillary Spicer, said: “We spend the vast majority of our daily work life indoors, yet the air is typically around 200 to 500 per cent more polluted than it is outside”.
“I’m proud of this product and believe it should be in every air conditioning unit in every building in the UK. We’ve had many successful UVC for HVAC installations, mainly in the Banking, Insurance and Health Care industry. We have some exciting projects coming up with organisations across the UK and I’m looking forward to taking this product further.”
