Belimo sets 100 million milestone
DANBURY, Connecticut, 20 January 2020: Belimo delivered its 100 millionth actuator – a PR actuator – in the beginning of the year and, in doing so, reached another milestone in its history, the Swiss company said through a Press release. The company, which manufactures field devices for controlling and regulating HVAC systems, said it confirms its growth course by reaching the milestone as well as the demand for innovative products that sustainably increase comfort, energy efficiency and safety in buildings.
Lars van der Haegen, CEO, Belimo, emphasized that not only are the best products and world-class logistics needed to sell this high a number of actuators but also a dedicated team of employees, who continuously aim to offer customers more value than they expect. Belimo, he said, always manages to increase energy efficiency and comfort. “It’s about technical innovations and their impact on sustainability,” he said. “Buildings are responsible for 40% of global CO2 emissions. With proper building controls systems, energy savings of up to 50% can be achieved compared to buildings without.”
Referring to the PR actuator, which earned the company the gong, van der Haegen said the device is part of a motorized butterfly valve that is used in water applications. Thanks to a power consumption of only 20 watts, he said, it reduces energy consumption by over 80% compared to competitive products. “We are proud to look back on 100 million actuators,” he said. “Our customers’ great trust in us and partnerships have made this possible, and we want to thank them for this joint success.”
