Partnership delivers hand dryers to healthcare sector

Healthcare centres across the country will now have access to new hand drying technology thanks to a partnership between UK-based hand drying technology manufacturer, Savortex, and Clearpower, part of FTSE 100 company DCC plc.

The new partnership will give companies within the healthcare sector access to solutions that can help them to achieve their sustainability goals whilst 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 provides healthcare 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.

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.”

Syed Ahmed, CEO at Savortex, said: “Our hand dryers have been designed to transform the washroom market by delivering unrivalled levels of sustainability, energy and operational resource savings. We are thrilled to be working with such a forward-thinking company and are confident that our range will provide significant savings and efficiencies to businesses in the healthcare sector across Ireland.”
