Airthings has acquired Airtight, a Norwegian proptech company that develops smart sensor technology to significantly reduce energy waste from buildings. With the acquisition, Airthings emerges as a market leader in helping businesses around the world use air quality and environmental data to improve energy efficiency, comfort and to ensure a healthy, productive indoor environment.
We spend more than 90% of our time indoors, where the air is often anywhere from five times to 100 times more polluted than even the lowest quality outdoor air. In the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has thrust the issues of personal health and environmental sustainability into the spotlight, technology that can improve the everyday wellness of our homes, workplaces and public spaces has never been in higher demand. By acquiring Airtight, Airthings can now provide customers with the previously untapped capability to address both air quality and energy efficiency in buildings through one combined solution.
“Together with Airtight, we can now offer an all-in-one solution to our customers, which not only monitors and identifies potential issues but also solves them, while simultaneous helping our planet,” said Oyvind Birkenes, CEO of Airthings . “Thanks to Airtight’s patented technology, we’re fully equipped to help our customers achieve a balance between occupant health and operational bottom lines while reducing the global carbon footprint. This partnership will be a win-win for both our clients and the world.”
