CAIROX supports indoor sport and indoor air quality

Zaventem, 24 August 2017 – From 25 August to 3 September inclusive the Belgian men’s national volleyball team (Red Dragons) is playing against France, Turkey and the Netherlands at the 2017 European Championships in Poland. SIG Air Handling – expert in total solutions for air improvement, air movement and air diffusion – is sponsoring this indoor volleyball team with its own product label CAIROX. The company aims to draw attention to the importance of air quality in indoor spaces such as sports halls, businesses and more.


Healthy air in sports halls and other indoor spaces

“Through the partnership between CAIROX and the men’s national volleyball team, the Red Dragons, we are launching our European brand dynamically, with a high return on investment. The visibility and media value we create via this sport will have a positive impact on our reputation as total solution partner and specialist in the world of ventilation,” says Bert Van Buggenhout, Marketing Manager of SIG Air Handling International.

Under the motto ‘Improving air because we care’ SIG Air Handling is striving for healthier indoor air for all: in the home, at work or during exercise – a perfect match with indoor volleyball. In addition, the Red Dragons and SIG Air Handling share the same values and energy, because both top players combine passion, strategy and tactics with strength, talent and technique. SIG Air Handling does this on three fronts – distribution, projects and services – and as a result the company offers its customers major added value.
