Syed Ahmed is the founder and the driving force behind SAVortex, a UK-based technology company focused on designing and manufacturing for the hand drying sector.

only produce an unrivalled user experience, but also dramatically reduce cost & energy consumption whilst increasing the life of hand dryers to be more reliable than the technologies currently used. Asked about the trends in


this industry, Syed talked about the research his company has undertaken. He says that during the research, key decision makers told the company that the key criteria when choosing dryers include drying time, energy consumption, noise level, product lifetime and warranty & capital cost. Syed believes the focus within

is concept is to create innovative, patented drying products that not

the industry is on the future of sustainable hand drying, which should utilise brushless technology and energy efficiency and should be clean with no dust particles. Also, dryers should be able to maintain a long life through being robust and durable. Syed also says that dryers should also be practical with little maintenance. He also believes that the future of drying should look at the cost of ownership of hand dryers from a both cost and energy point of view. Syed also stated that dryers

should see a good deal of quality control and that the best technology to be found is being designed, manufactured and

supplied in the UK. Syed was also keen to state that any dryers, if they are to be fit for the future, are to have IP54 ratings, should be space saving and water resistant. He concluded that WEEE compliance should also come as standard. A user of

the Savortex dryer Syed

has worked so

hard on is Ahmed Khan, Franchisee for

McDonalds. He said of his SAVortex

installation: “I have been extremely pleased with the Vortex hand dryer we have recently had installed. In my busiest restaurant we serve over 70,000 customers per month and it’s fair to say that our toilets & hand dryers get a lot of use, so I jumped at the chance of putting

in a hand dryer that is quick at drying hands whilst saving me a lot of money over the year. I would highly recommend the Vortex hand dryer.” Meanwhile, Howard Hastings,

Managing Director of hotel chain Hastings Hotels, says of the product: “We now have the SAVortex hand dryers in our washrooms. We are delighted with their performance and as they are powered at only 550 watts, they provide the lowest carbon footprint drying system

in the World.” 
