Nils Meinhardt, Global Business Development Manager HVAC, UL, stated: “UL and Eurovent Middle East have the same intentions and targets: improving standards and quality in the region and support the development of a sustainable environment for the countries and its people in the Middle East. Joining forces enables us to use synergies and double our efforts in raising awareness on issues like safety and IAQ.
Markus Lattner, Managing Director of Eurovent Middle East, added: “UL has a strong reputation in fire and electrical safety, but is active in many more areas as well. The cooperation of our organisations in areas like Indoor Air Quality will give joint recommendations great credibility.
