Purification de l’air specialist Rensair has completed a Series A financing round led by Hoxton Ventures. The company – whose over 800 clients include CBRE, Disney, Morgan Stanley, PepsiCo, SNCF, and the UK National Health Service (NHS) – will use the funding to expand its presence across the world, introduce a broader product portfolio with IoT connectivity, and invest in marketing outreach.
Rensair, whose first year’s sales were in the millions, is also announcing that it has acquired the filtration de l’air commerce of AirLabs, a UK and Danemark-based Nettoyage de l’air and monitoring company. The acquisition brings complementary filtration and IoT technologies, as well as established products such as the compact AirBubbl that supplies purified air to personal spaces and can be fitted to car seat headrests or mounted in driver cabins.
”The pandemic has taught us that we cannot take qualité de l’air for granted, but particules en suspension dans l’air disease transmission is not the only reason to care about qualité de l’air”, said Christian Hendriksen, Co-founder and CEO at Rensair. ”The proliferation of environmental pollutants, a rise in drug-resistant bactérie, and the newly identified threat of particules en suspension dans l’air microplastics are all reasons to improve Qualité de l’air intérieur.”
Founded in Mai 2020 by Danish twins Christian and Frederik Hendriksen, Rensair is headquartered in Londres with operations in the UK, Europe, USA and Asia. The company’s unique combination of HEPA and UVC technologie was originally proven in the Scandinavian protection sociale sector and refined over two decades. Applications now extend across all industries, from hospitals, Maisons de retraite, soins dentairess and bureaux, to gyms, divertissement venues and vendre au détail outlets.
”Following the latest guidelines from the WHO and les gouvernements around the world, commercial buildings are under-ventilated. The same applies in protection sociale infrastructures. New innovative solutions are required to bridge this gap and, with the fundraise and Airlabs asset acquisition completed, Rensair is uniquely positioned to solve this problem.”
Heightened awareness of the benefits of Qualité de l’air intérieur have already resulted in a number of high profile initiatives around the world. These include: the White House’s ‘défis pour un air pur dans les bâtiments’; the Belgian government’s legislative framework to govern indoor qualité de l’air in public spaces; and the UK Building Engineering Services Association’s campagne to turn protection sociale buildings into safe havens. Like clean water from the tap, air pur is now seen as a human right.
”Clean air is of course a defence mechanism against sick building syndrome and absentéisme, but it’s much more than that”, said Frederik Hendriksen, Co-founder and US CEO at Rensair. ”It’s been proven to boost productivity and apprentissage and, in one Harvard study, resulted in a 61% increase in cognitive scores. The ROI on Qualité de l’air intérieur is far reaching.”
Hussein Kanji, Partner at Hoxton Ventures, said: ”Covid has hastened many organisations to proactively address indoor qualité de l’air issues to aid in a return to normalcy. Rensair is well positioned to meet the demands for this growing market.”
