As 2016 draws to a close, we would like to thank our customers, industry partners and employees for their role in making this another event-filled year for us here at World Dryer.
Looking back, 2016 was a year full of highlights. Here are just a few of them:
- In April, the Green Restaurant Association endorsed our VERDEdri™ high-speed hand dryer for meeting GRA’s rigorous environmental product endorsement standards. This honor recognized that VERDEdri is extremely energy efficient, utilizing only 950 watts of power for a 12 second dry time. VERDEdri is the fifth World Dryer high-speed hand dryer to be endorsed by GRA, joining our SMARTdri Series®, SLIMdri®, VMax® and Airforce.
- In May, we attended the National Restaurant Association’s NRA Show 2016 in our hometown of Chicago. It was a great opportunity for us to share how our high-speed hand dryers, such as the VERDEdri, are not only a cost-effective and affordable option for restaurants large and small, but also how they can enhance the customer experience with quick dry times and the ability to help keep a clean appearance in restaurant restrooms.
- In August, we were pleased to announce that World Dryer had joined an industry consortium of hand dyer makers and UL Environment to publish a first-of-its-kind global Product Category Rule (PCR) for hand dryers. The PCR creates transparency for hand dryer manufacturers worldwide to evaluate the environmental impact of their products with a common approach, resulting in less confusion in the marketplace.
- Then in October, we were in downtown Chicago again to participate in ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2016. It was an excellent show and a great opportunity for us to again showcase our “all-in-one” VERDEdri, a surface-mounted, ADA compliant hand dryer packed with features not typically found in a single hand dryer solution. Needless to say, like the ISSA/INTERCLEAN show itself, VERDEdri was a big hit.
It truly has been a great year and as we get ready to ring in 2017, everyone here at World Dryer wants to wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season. We look forward to every good thing to come for us all in the New Year!
