BALTIMORE - Danfoss has announced its inaugural EnVisioneer of the Year award competition. The competition recognizes end users, building owners, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that exemplify the Danfoss EnVisioneering™ core values and have used Danfoss products to realize significant energy and environmental savings.

“EnVisioneering is a strategic, customer-focused approach designed to create engaged partnerships with our customers by combining engineering innovation, energy efficiency, and environmental responsibility,” said Robert Wilkins, president of Danfoss North America. “This competition will help business leaders continue to advance energy-efficient and sustainable solutions that support improved performance and profitability, higher standards, and lower operating costs in buildings and facilities.”

The EnVisioneer of the Year competition is open to U.S. end users, building owners, and OEMs that have introduced a new product, opened a new facility, or invested in a building or system upgrade in the past 18 months and have used Danfoss products to realize significant energy and/or environmental savings.
