Very successful ISH fair in Frankfurt for SIG Air Handling

ISH Frankfurt, the world´s largest HVAC trade fair (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning), received over 200,000 visitors between March 14th and 18th. SIG Air Handling took the opportunity to promote its own product label CAIROX and at the same time the company’s supported vision: ´Improving air because we care´.

Impressive demonstrations
Along with the highly appreciated presentation of the various services that SIG Air Handling offers as a total solutions partner, the scale model of a parking garage ventilation system drew really big crowds. The model was used to demonstrate live just how an underground parking fire develops, and how the ventilation system can contribute to implementing a safe evacuation.
It proved to be a must-see for every visitor.

Positive reactions
For the occasion, artist Jean-Luc Moerman pimped out the SIG Air Handling products with unique tattoo-like decorations, which generated lots of positive feedback. The evening event on Thursday attracted over 250 customers, partners, business relations and suppliers. SIG Air Handling considers the fair to have been a highly successful event.

Satisfied with ISH
“This HVAC trade fair with a global impact has international visitors who have an interesting profile and who implement real construction projects over the short and long terms. SIG Air Handling is very happy about the way the ISH fair was organised, and we will certainly be confirming our participation in 2019 shortly”, says Bert Van Buggenhout, Marketing Manager of
SIG Air Handling.

General price increase 2% ​from March 1st, 2017

You may have noticed that the prices of raw materials and the transport costs have significantly increased during the past year. As a result, SIG Air Handling has been confronted with increased production costs of our products.

This is why we have to raise all of our prices with 2%. This general price increase will go in effect on March 1st, 2017.

For further questions regarding this price increase, you can always contact our staff.

SIG Air Handling continues its expansion in Germany

After a series of acquisitions in various European countries, SIG Air Handling has set its sights on
the German-language market. Profant Luft-Technik HandelsgmbH in Austria was acquired earlier this year, and Trier-based BLH is now
joining this group of ventilation specialists as well.

About BLH
BLH (Bauelemente für Lüftungstechnik Hennen GmbH) is a leading manufacturer and distributor of ventilating ducts and special components with around 90 employees. The company is primarily active in Germany and the BeLux, where it works for industrial customers who demand the highest technical quality. Its impressive portfolio includes projects such as the NATO headquarters in Brussels, The Squaire close to the airport of Frankfurt as well as the head office of the European Central Bank – also in Frankfurt.

SIG Air Handling is always on the lookout for partners who have something to offer that supplements its current products and services. “We want to further profile ourselves as the supplier of complete solutions for the professional HVAC market in Europe”, says Lex Hemels, Managing Director of SIG Air Handling. “For this you need specialised partners, as well as a strong geographical distribution and Germany plays a crucial part in this.”

Other factors also play a role in such acquisitions. For example, it is important that each partner has adopted and applies the same values and subscribes to the social commitment of SIG Air Handling. As a group we strive for a healthy, safe and energy-efficient living and working environment for everyone, and that can only be achieved if everyone is on the same page.

With the acquisition of BLH, SIG Air Handling is highlighting its ambitious growth plans and the group is continuing to work on its unambiguous positioning as a partner in distribution, projects and support services.

SIG Air Handling is growing in size, product offering and expertise

What began life in 2001 as Ouest Ventil in France, has now expanded to become SIG Air Handling with over a hundred subsidiaries all over Europe. This expert in heating, ventilation and airconditioning (HVAC) supports customers and partners with professional advice and specialised systems. Recently, SIG Air Handling has also been developing and distributing products under its own CAIROX brand. In addition, this socially responsible company aims to provide healthy indoor air in cooperation with European organisations like EVIA and EFA.

SIG Air Handling is developing into a leading player on the European market for Heating, Ventilation & Airconditioning products. Last year, the company took over three HVAC companies: HC Group (in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom), Interland Techniek (in the Netherlands) and Profant Lufttechnik Handels GmbH (in Austria). Since 17 August 2016, BLH GmbH (Germany) joined the group – and there are further plans to expand on the German market. SIG Air Handling can now call on over a hundred distribution points in Europe. A strong network, which means that customers quickly obtain the right products and advice.

Healthy indoor air for everyone
With the motto ‘Improving air because we care’ SIG Air Handling’s business aims to find energy-efficient total solutions and better indoor air quality. Together with architects, designers and project developers, SIG Air Handling devises ventilation systems that ensure that people can breathe healthy indoor air at work, at home and during their leisure time.

To achieve this, the experts concerned focus on three elements: air improvement, air movement and air diffusion. In addition to specialist advice and partnerships for total projects, customers come to SIG Air Handling for its extensive and unique range of over 15,000 products. This extensive product range is available via our distribution outlets or can be ordered via a user-friendly webshop.

Own brand and corporate social responsibility
This European company continues to grow; from specialised service and project solutions to production and assembly facilities, and just recently, it introduced its own brand - CAIROX. This means that SIG Air Handling is now developing and distributing products for air improvement, air movement and air diffusion under strong own labels, thus further strengthening its service provision and its position on the European market.

In the field of Corporate social responsibility, SIG Air Handling is making its contribution: The company is working actively in various working groups of EVIA, the European Ventilation Industry Association, and in that context is working towards better European standards for Indoor Air Quality. With that aim in mind, it is also working with EFA, the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations. The company aims to draw attention to the issue of indoor air quality and encourage Europe to take appropriate measures. Because everyone is entitled to and benefits from healthy indoor air.

SIG Air Handling supports EFA to improve indoor air quality standards

On 30 May 2016, SIG Air Handling International bv signed a contract with the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations (EFA). The European supplier of heating, ventilation and air conditioning products is now a funding partner of EFA and supports its efforts advocating for higher standards and healthier indoor air quality in Europe - in particular for people with allergies, asthma and chronic respiratory diseases.

Every year, two million healthy lives in the European Union are lost as a result of poor air quality. Outside large cities, indoor air is between twice and fifty times as polluted as outdoor air. For example, studies show that 64 million students and 4.5 million teachers in Europe are breathing in unhealthy indoor air almost daily. A possible reason for this is a lack of or a poorly maintained ventilation system.

"The European Union is due to adopt new legislation on Indoor Air Quality” – EFA

EFA is working to promote healthier indoor air for all, especially for allergy and chronic respiratory patients. "The European Union is due to adopt new measures for indoor air quality and we are calling for higher air quality standards to prevent the negative impact poor air quality has in our health”, says EFA Communications Manager Isabel Proaño. SIG Air Handling is delighted to support this initiative. The company wishes to draw attention to the indoor air issue and give Europe a helping hand to take appropriate actions.

Because everyone is entitled to and stands to benefit from indoor air. That message is reflected in SIG Air Handling's motto: “Improving air because we care.” In the next few years, SIG Air Handling plans to work with the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Disease Patients' Associations and develop solutions to improve overall indoor air quality.

About EFA
The European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations is an independent non-profit organisation of 41 allergy, asthma and COPD patients’ organisations in 25 European countries, with offices in Brussels, Belgium. EFA’s vision is that European patients with allergy, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) live uncompromised lives, have the right and access to the best quality care and a safe environment. EFA’s mission is to be their voice and to be actively involved in the decisions impacting their health. For more information, visit:
