Belimo sets 100 Million Milestone
At the beginning of the year, Belimo delivered its 100 millionth actuator and in doing so reached another milestone in the Company’s history. The Swiss World Market Leader for field devices for controlling and regulating heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems confirms its growth course by reaching this milestone as well as the demand for innovative products that sustainably increase comfort, energy efficiency and safety in buildings.
Lars van der Haegen, CEO of Belimo, emphasizes that not only are the best products and world-class logistics needed to sell this high number of actuators. Employees who continuously aim to offer customers more value than they expect are also essential. Belimo always manages to increase both energy efficiency and comfort, explains van der Haegen. “It’s about technical innovations and their impact on sustainability. Buildings are responsible for 40 percent of global CO2 emissions, with proper building controls systems, energy savings of up to 50 percent can be achieved compared to buildings without”.
Even the 100 millionth actuator produced offers the same sustainable added value for customers, a PR actuator, which was made as an anniversary product. The PR actuator is part of a motorized butterfly valve that is used in water applications and, thanks to a power consumption of only 20 watts, it reduces energy consumption by over 80% compared to competitive products. “We are proud to look back on 100 million actuators. Our customer’s great trust in us and partnerships have made this possible and we want to thank them for this joint success,” van der Haegen concluded.
