About Swegon Air Academy
Swegon Air Academy history
When, what and why.
In the beginning…
In December 2004, the two Swedish ventilation companies Stifab Farex and PM Luft merged and became Swegon. To make this new company, and its new name, known on a highly competitive market with numerous other players, it was decided to do something really different to establish its presence. In 2005, Swegon Air Academy (SAA) was formed as a platform for sharing the knowledge.
Swegon Air Academy is one of the very few players among the market’s commercial and non-commercial organizations whose role is not to generate money or provide product training, but to share knowledge on a wide scale. It is the policy of Swegon Air Academy to disseminate information using neutral channels, without advertising or marketing any products, solutions or systems. By remaining neutral, we ensure that attention is fully focused on effective knowledge exchange.
Swegon Air Academy contributes to increased awareness about subjects such as energy issues, healthy indoor environments and ventilation knowledge. In collaboration with leading experts in the field, even complex problems are explained in an intelligible way, making them understandable to people who really need to know more. It is our profound belief that poorly functioning systems can be significantly improved and thus provide healthier indoor climates at reasonable costs – if the whys and wherefores can be explained. If we can achieve this, then we can then design and build systems which are economically viable and controlled, regulated and monitored to ensure maximum flexibility.
New look for Swegon Air Academy
The new Swegon Air Academy profile was created to reflect the seriousness of the issue concerning indoor air quality, energy use and environmental problems. The use of black and white represents the importance that Swegon Air Academy places on issues and problems in ventilation. It is essential to remember that people spend 90% of their lives indoors, and major attention must be paid to the quality of our living conditions.
