Press release 30.1.2020
AAVI Technologies Co. Ltd. signed a cooperation agreement with China CAMC Engineering Co. Ltd. last week. The cooperation was boosted by the coronavirus; CAMC and AAVI have together donated 100 virus killing AAVI Leaf® air purifiers to five hospitals in Wuhan area that are treating patients infected by the coronavirus. The first delivery has left the AAVI warehouse in Qidong on January 29, 2020. It has also been agreed that AAVI Leaf® air purifiers will be donated to the new Wuhan hospital that is being constructed to treat patients with the coronavirus.
AAVI Technologies Co. Ltd.’s air purifiers are widely used in e.g. school and hospital environments and their purification efficiency is based on the ionization of contaminated particles. Pathogens are killed and seized by the collector surfaces from where they are automatically removed. The internationally widely patented AAVI® technology removes even nano-sized particles, coal dust, virus, bacteria and gases. Tests conducted by an independent research institute have proved that AAVI Leaf® air purifier efficiently removes i.a. coronavirus sized particles (ca. 100 nm) (Report CR-02641, 2018, ”Microbiological efficacy testing of Aavi Leaf purification device”). The purification efficiency is significantly higher than that of e.g. UV light or HEPA filter. The technology ensures continuous high purification efficiency due to absence of clogging and changeable filters, and the devices can be safely serviced and maintained.
AAVI Technologies Co. Ltd. is a development and manufacturing company of air purifiers located in Vantaa, Finland. Until 2019 the production was in Finland and the company produced up to 60 AAVI Leaf® air purifiers per day. 95 % of all products are sold to the Chinese market by AAVI Technologies Co. Ltd.’s Chinese parent company, Synergy New Technologies Service Co., Ltd. In order to fulfill the growing demand in China, AAVI Technologies Co., Ltd. established a factory near Shanghai in 2018; AAVI Technologies Jiangsu Co., Ltd. is producing air purifiers for industrial and commercial use in its 120.000 m2 facilities.
Majority of the factory workers in China cut short their Chinese New Year celebrations and the factory was opened ahead of time after the holidays; the production of various AAVI® air purifiers is now working at full steam.
