DUBAI, UAE, 30 December 2019: “A workforce that is comfortable is going to be more productive,” said Paul Groves, Business Development Manager, Khansaheb Industries, while discussing the company’s initiative of investing in improving the indoor air quality (IAQ) of its new Dubai facility. “This environment is especially difficult, because it’s almost open air,” he said. “The only way you can cool the space is through evaporative cooling.” In line with this, Groves said the company opted for Oxycom’s IntrCooll Indirect/Direct evaporative cooling and IntrCooll Plus Design Airflow. Groves reported that productivity has increased by up to 40-50% following the move from the previous factory to the new facility.

Groves said that productivity is especially crucial for a company like Khansaheb, considering Spiralite is a specialised product. “Productivity is important, and it has an impact on our cost, which makes us more competitive,” he said. “You also have less staff turnover, which means there is no need to retrain.”

Groves added that there is a need to educate private companies on the benefits of investing in improving IAQ. “I don’t think a lot of companies have it as a high priority,” he said, “and maybe part of the reason is because they don’t know there is a way of doing well.”
