Food Service Sustainability Solutions became a GSSA sponsor last year and displayed the AirGenie Air Sanitizer during our 2020 Fall Bootstrap in Athens. They have recently earned the Georgia Made Certification. Georgia Made is a program created to celebrate the people and support the industries manufacturing a wide variety of products across our state. The following is an excerpt of an article from Georgia Made.
When its traditional sales to foodservice industries dried up in the pandemic’s early days, Commercial Stainless Fabricators (CSF) in Marietta, Georgia, pivoted by innovatively repurposing materials to produce a powerful new tool to combat COVID-19: a portable, compact air purifier, 99.9% effective against airborne viruses. Marketed by CSF’s sister company, Foodservice Sustainability Solutions (FSS), to hospitals, schools, hotels, and restaurants, the AirGenie™ sanitizer employs UV-C technology to exchange air up to six times an hour, 50% more than the minimum amount implied by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“The early months of the pandemic were scary, but we had the workforce and engineering to pivot to something people needed right away, so we were able to bring back most of our furloughed workers,” says Kim Eger, senior vice president of FSS and CSF. “There’s a greater awareness of indoor air quality, and we’re ramping up to meet the demand.”
CSF also designed and began making hands-free door handles called Safer2Pull™, which allow people to enter rooms without touching a door. Those and its sneeze guards, which FSS now markets as desk shields, table spacers, and courthouse protection, are utilized by, among others, world-famous chef José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup restaurants.
“These products are right in line with our historic focus on hygiene and sustainability. Our employees are proud they can contribute to the fight against COVID-19,” says Eger.
