For over 15 years, Goodwind has been manufacturing the most innovated hand dryers which revolutionized the industry by first inventing the change yourself HEPA filter, automatic water level detection, filter changing indication sensors and the remote control motor diagnosis system. Recently Goodwind has developed the real Plug & Play hand dryer with a built-in air sterilizer. Goodwind’s employees have earned trusted partnerships with customers and suppliers around the world. The company leverages these relationships to get a deeper understanding of the challenges and do what it takes to develop the next solution. Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company? GOODWIND: Our main business area is the hygiene industry, in particular accessories for public washrooms which has become more important due to the COVID19 situation. E.E: What’s the news for 2021 about new products? GOODWIND: Our new product ‘Pebble Hand Dryer’ is the only hand dryer to offer true multi-product Plug & Play functionality. A high quality, low-cost hand dryer that would be a fitting finish to any stylish washroom, the Plug & Play offers an easy to use snap in/out system, removing the need for skilled labour. Although the unique design stands out, the noise level doesn’t. (‘Quiet Mark’ certification obtained). The Pebble comes equipped with a HEPA filter material which captures allergens, bacteria and pollutants and allow you to dry your hands with clean air. The built-in air sterilizer equipped with an UV-C lamp and a plasma ION generator helps mitigate the risk of acquiring an infection. It was also verified to be capable of neutralizing 99.9% of viruses and bacteria in the air by the TUV certificate. Along with the sleek modern look, the Pebble Plug & Play also boasts with ION PURE anti-microbial metal ions – preventing the build-up of offensive odour, and bacteria, mold and viruses growing inside the hand dryer. E.E: What are the ranges of products? GOODWIND: Various hand dryers and automatic soap & sanitizer dispensers are widely selling in global markets with a good reputation. E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active? GOODWIND: We are cooperating with well-known hygiene companies like Initial, ROCA, Bradely, Citron Hygiene, Steibel Eltron, Starmix and other big local distributors. Currently we are supplying our products to more than 20 countries and our goal now is to extend our market territory. E.E: What can you tell us about market trends? GOODWIND: The market trends of hand dryers can be shown with two important aspects. On the one hand, a hand dryer has to be able to provide a high hygiene standard to clients, especially in COVID19 times and on the other hand, the product has to have a low environmental impact without compromising on style or efficiency. That’s why we think that our new Pebble Hand Dryer meets both of these market requirements and trends with our filter system, built-in UV-C and ION generator and our self-developed BLDC (Brushless DC) motor. E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed? GOODWIND: We have not yet found a more innovative product than our Pebble series while looking at other hand dryers. E.E: What estimations do you have for 2021? GOODWIND: We have quite an optimistic business prospect for 2021. Even with the harsh consequences of the pandemic in 2020, we have been pushing the developments for our new Pebble Hand Dryer series to be able to answer the current market demands, which have occurred due to COVID19. We think that even after the COVID19 situation settles down, the need for innovative hygiene solutions is at an all-time high.
