JUPITER, Fla. — Fresh-Aire UV®, manufacturers of Blue Tube UV® and other HVAC IAQ products, has expanded its Jupiter, Florida, headquarters by 50 percent to accommodate a growing workforce, a newly-purchased air purification product test chamber, and its recent launch into the European market.

The expansion includes space for a 40- x 10-foot state-of-the-art test chamber, one of only a few worldwide. The test rig enables Fresh-Aire UV to analyze and certify its UV, gas-phase air purification, and photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) products, as well as other air cleaning apparatus, in compliance with ASHRAE Standard 52.2 (particulate and biological contaminants) and 145.2 (gaseous contaminants including volatile organic compounds) filtration product test methodology. It also calculates IAQ device clean air delivery rates in compliance with ASHRAE’s upcoming SPC-185.1 (inactivating airborne microbes) and SPC-185.2 (inactivating microbes on irradiated HVAC unit surfaces) UV standardizations.

Besides research and development, the expansion also creates office space for a sales force that has tripled as a result of Fresh-Aire UV’s double-digit sales increases the past few years.

Fresh-Aire UV also recently established a distribution network in Europe under the name of Fresh Aire Europe (www.freshaire.eu), headquartered in Silkeborg, Denmark, and managed by Michael Stensbjerg, CEO. The newly-formed company plans to establish distribution to market its products to all 28 European Union members in addition to Norway and Switzerland. Stensbjerg is setting up key distribution points throughout the EU beginning with Italy, Spain, and France.
