Seeley International won the ‘Best manufacturer - standalone cooling’ category award for its Climate Wizard technology at the 2013 Climate Control Awards held in Dubai recently.
Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM, said it was rewarding to see the industry recognise Climate Wizard as reflecting best practice and setting the technology benchmark on a national and international level.
Seeley International received this prestigious award against the backdrop of one of the biggest global exhibitions for air-conditioning, The Big 5 – International Building and Construction Show, reinforcing the fact that Climate Wizard is a proven technology, which is leading the innovation race.
According to Mr Seeley, the judges had to consider a range of factors for selecting the Best Manufacturer category award winner, including the reliability of the product, ease of installation and maintenance, and the warranty terms and conditions offered.
Mr Seeley describes Climate Wizard’s indirect evaporative air conditioning as a breakthrough technology that has changed the way the industry looks at air conditioning. He explains Climate Wizard’s cost-saving capabilities actually increase when the heat is at its highest, and its performance also increases as temperatures rise, in complete contrast to refrigerated systems.
Seeley International invested a decade in the development of the innovative technology that overcomes the performance shortcomings of traditional evaporative air conditioning operating in humid climates and can offer comfort conditions equivalent to, or better than, conventional refrigerated air conditioning, all of which is achieved with reduced electricity consumption.
This latest accolade tops off a year of achievements for Climate Wizard, which was recently crowned winner of the Energy Efficiency and Carbon Management Award in the 2013 Banksia Awards and the 2013 Australian Business Awards for Innovation.
Climate Wizard has previously won the 2010 Product Excellence Award at the Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services (ARBS) Industry Awards, the Greenplumbers ‘Energy Efficient Product of the Year’, the 2011 Australian International Design Awards, and the 2013 World Ag Expo Top 10 New Products Competition.
Seeley International team also recently achieved the 23rd position in this year’s coveted BRW Most Innovative Companies list, a Top 50 list compiled by Melbourne-based innovation consultancy, Inventium.
These two outstanding achievements were topped off by the announcement that Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM was runner-up for ‘Chairman of the Year’ at the CEO Magazine’s ‘Executive of the Year Awards’ held in Sydney.
