Partnership brings innovative new hand dryers to health sector


SAVORTEX and Clearpower join forces to help NHS meet sustainability goals and save money

Healthcare centres across the country will now have access to multi-award-winning hand drying technology thanks to a partnership between UK-based manufacturer, SAVORTEX, and Clearpower.

The partnership will give healthcare organisations greater access to solutions that can help them to achieve their sustainability goals while crucially saving money.

Under the terms of the agreement, Clearpower will be distributing SAVORTEX’s EcoCurve range of hand dryers, including the EcoCurve 550D Smart Dryer and the newly-launched adDryer.

The range has been designed to deliver unrivalled levels of sustainability, energy and operational resource savings.

The range also provides health centres with the opportunity to generate revenue.

The adDryer is an IoT-enabled smart dryer which includes a digital screen that can deliver tailored, high-definition video messages to users, which can be used for internal marketing or as an additional revenue stream.

By working with the building owner, SAVORTEX can create an audience value of the estate based on the users of the building, for example gender, age and occupation.

The company’s media buyers can then use this information to set and agree a cost-per-view rate that will be paid to the hospital or healthcare centre each time someone uses an adDryer and sees an advert, thus creating revenue.

SAVORTEX was founded by entrepreneur Syed Ahmed, best known for his appearance on the UK Apprentice TV show.

The company is a Department of Trade-backed and funded, British multi-award winning smart technology manufacturer.

In partnership with the Intel ignition lab, SAVORTEX has designed and manufactured the world’s first and most-environmentally-advanced smart hand-drying technology for the corporate washroom sector.

The partnership will now enable Clearpower to further help its customers in the healthcare sector to make vital energy savings and deal with tightening budgets.

Anthony Mulligan, general manager at Clearpower, said: “We serve a number of clients within the healthcare sector and therefore understand the challenges they face.

“As a result, we constantly work with them to find ways to save them money and improve efficiencies.

“SAVORTEX is a dynamic and forward-thinking company and its EcoCurve range delivers the perfect solution. We look forward to working with them.”

Ahmed, chief executive at SAVORTEX, added: “Our hand dryers have been designed to transform the washroom market by delivering unrivalled levels of sustainability, energy and operational resource savings.
