AVT’s new investments drive 20% productivity increase

State-of-the-art production line and lift arm now in place at Air Vent Technology HQ. Air Vent Technology is celebrating a 20% increase in productivity and a significant improvement in team morale following the installation of a bespoke new production line and lift arm.

The investment was made as part of the company’s overall strategy to support the health and safety of its employees – and the continued growth of the business.

Dave Young, Operations & CI Manager at AVT, said: “This new equipment is a major step forward for Air Vent Technology. As the company’s domestic range continues to surge in popularity, it’s so exciting to know we’ll be able to consistently fulfill more orders while enhancing our safety standards.

“Every member of the shopfloor staff has been impressed by the design and workings of the new production line and lifting equipment. Our day-to-day operations are now much more comfortable and I’m confident this investment will help us to continue to go from strength to strength in the coming months and years.”

After a prolonged period of high demand, Air Vent Technology leaders began discussions with Aluminium Frame and Tooling Solutions and Scaglia Indeva in a bid to find the innovations needed to support a sustained uplift in productivity.

A timeline and initial design concepts were agreed early in the process. Weekly meetings with both suppliers, along with regular site visits, maintained that initial momentum. Air Vent Technology’s shopfloor, finance, and R&D teams were also asked for input to ensure all aspects of the project were covered in detail.

Dave Young, Operations & CI Manager at AVT, added: “I’m so proud of how all parties maintained excellent communication throughout what was undoubtedly a complex project. The process flowed from start to finish exactly as we’d hoped. I can’t thank our suppliers enough.”

As well as delivering increases in productivity, the new production line and lift arm will also enable Air Vent Technology’s domestic production team to continue to work at ISO9001 standards.

Introducing Topflo®, a groundbreaking vertical counterflow heat recovery unit

Air Vent Technology launches HRPVX-EC infinity® Topflo®, a new high efficiency and vertical counterflow heat recovery unit designed to give site managers and planners unprecedented options for small and restricted spaces.

Buyers can choose from three different sizes and either left or right configuration, while a maximum air volume of up to 2.1m3/s offers industry-leading performance for a vertical unit.

UK designed and manufactured, it is ErP 2018 compliant and fitted with the latest energy efficient EC fans to meet L2 regulations. All connections are on the top of the unit, which is available with either electric or water heating.

The unit’s release is the latest advance in Air Vent Technology’s range expansion and continues to build on the company’s reputation for quality, design, and innovation.

Vectaire Group commercial director Robert Francis said: “Our R&D team have worked hard to create a truly market-leading unit in HRPVX-EC infinity® Topflo®. They can be proud of their efforts, because this new heat exchanger is already generating great reviews through a combination of efficiency, quietness, easy installation procedures and a compact size.”

The unit has vertical intake and discharge, with no mixing of airflows. A 25mm double skin helps to reduce noise breakout, with an acoustic high-density infill available for environments where low noise transmission is especially important.

All controls are fitted to the front of the unit, allowing for easy access and maintenance, while its relatively small size makes it ideal for installation in cupboards and other limited spaces.

Grade F7 (supply) and M5 (extract) filters are fitted as standard.
