Eurovent Middle East has welcomed UL as an associate member, and hopes the announcement will provide greater opportunity for collaboration.
The latest member to join the association for HVACR manufacturers will contribute to a joint working group to develop initiatives for improved indoor air quality, as well as encourage the use of enhanced technological solutions in the region.
Markus Lattner, MD for Eurovent Middle East, said he was pleased to welcome UL into the fold, and said discussions will centre on how they can jointly contribute to a better understanding of the current market.
“We are very happy to see UL joining our growing family,” he said.
“Our main focus at Eurovent is looking at wider issues, like how to improve energy efficiency in this region or improve indoor air quality through broader initiatives. Therefore, we see a lot of areas for a successful collaboration with UL.
“We believe that our co-operation can help to develop specific strategies to initiate actions by authorities, property developers and by the people themselves.
“We hope to be involved in more collaborations to create awareness in the market for safety, latest technologies and even regulatory aspects.”
Hamid Syed, Vice President and General Manager of UL Middle East, said the activities of Eurovent and UL complement each other.
He added that the formation of a working group highlighted the commitment of both organisations to improving air quality.
He explained: “This is very much in line with UL’s mission to foster safe living and working conditions for people around the world through the application of science to solve safety, security and sustainability challenges.
“We believe together we can make a bigger impact in this specific field of indoor air quality and I am convinced that we will not stop there and collaborate in further areas in the future.”
