Artus Air secures funding
Green innovator Artus Air (https://artusair.com) secures a multi-million-pound investment from one of the largest and most experienced investors in the UK and Ireland BGF, as part of a wider funding round alongside leading venture capital firm, Par Equity.
Spun out of global sustainable development consultancy Arup in 2021, Artus designs and sells game-changing HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) units for buildings, with its innovative, elegant design significantly reducing carbon emissions both by using fewer materials and being more efficient to operate.
“This investment marks a transformative moment in Artus Air’s growth journey,” “Our track record of delivery shows why we are the future of air conditioning – our solution delivers significant carbon savings, is demonstrably faster to install and is easier to maintain. It also has the added benefit of being super compact, meaning that sometimes it’s the only solution to the upgrade of tricky spaces,” says Rebecca Stewart, CEO, Artus Air.
“BGF’s investment alongside the continuing support of Par Equity is warmly welcomed as we expand our offering into high potential markets in Europe and the US. We look forward to reducing our impact on the environment and setting new standards within the industry.”
“Artus Air is pioneering and delivering energy efficient climate control technology that can make a real difference at a time when building emissions are under close scrutiny. We are pleased that our investment, as part of the wider fundraise, will help scale up the company’s sales function and expand within this opportunity-rich sector,” says Dennis Atkinson, Investor, BGF. “A combination of rising demand, a strong management team and evolving efficiency requirements means Artus Air is perfectly placed to drive the green revolution in heating and cooling technologies.”
“Artus Air is leading the charge in the air conditioning technology space, which is evident from its energy saving credentials to date,” adds Paul Munn, Managing Partner, Par Equity. “Its commitment to innovating and retrofitting units that are functionally advanced, smart and sustainable sets them apart, and it’s great to see it already being implemented in well-known buildings across the UK. This is why at Par Equity, we are delighted to play a part in its investment journey. Having initially invested in 2021, we’re thrilled to continue our support in this round, enabling Artus Air to take the next step and expand its offering to more buildings across the UK and beyond.”
Deloitte estimates that 80% of London’s offices need upgrading to meet future energy efficiency standards, and with 6% of the UK’s emissions coming from heating and cooling commercial and public buildings, Artus can play a key role in retrofitting more carbon efficient HVAC systems.
