"Facility managers everywhere are being asked to do more with less as budgets are slashed and sustainability goals are set...a balanced approach that reduces paper towel usage is just smart business, and NetDryers can help."

A new ecommerce site devoted to hand dryers launched in Chicago in August. NetDryers was created by George Campbell after spending the last 5 years launching Dyson’s first commercial product, the Dyson AirbladeTM hand dryer. The company’s focus is on helping customers focus on their objectives of bathroom strategies, not just providing a catalog of products. "I like paper towels as much as the next person," says George, "but there is a lot of new technology out there that can help organizations achieve cost and sustainability goals whether they completely replace paper or not. NetDryers can help by starting with the customer."

"Facility managers everywhere are being asked to do more with less as budgets are slashed and sustainability goals are set. Hand dryers are a product that can have a fast financial payback while definitively and positively impacting sustainability targets, especially around waste reduction. For example, a decent sized university can generate tons and tons of landfill waste every year by using paper towels while spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on paper towels. In addition, organizations have the hidden cost of the labor required to buy, take delivery, dispense, and dispose of the paper towels, not to mention unclogging toilets. Paper towels can’t be recycled and require delivery and disposal by using vehicles, usually diesel trucks. A balanced approach that reduces paper towel usage is just smart business, and NetDryers can help," says George.

"NetDryers intends to create thought leadership around restroom strategies by helping facility and operations professionals, designers, and business owners start with their objectives. For example, a school may want to reduce its waste generation by 40% without a budget impact. If you start with that premise, you will likely come to a different decision than if you decide to just evaluate hand dryers vs. paper towels. We run the financials, look at the bathroom designs, consider all of the products available, and help the customer come to a good conclusion."

NetDryers site (http://www.netdryers.com) will feature a regular blog on these topics. The site also features the NetDryers Hand Dryer Checklist, a straight-talking guide for customers to understand the sometimes controversial and complicated issues to consider, like accessibility, noise, hygiene, cost calculations, electrical configurations, sustainability, etc. Says George, "In my experience, the shopping mall, restaurant, airport, and university all have different things to consider when making these choices. NetDryers wants to start with the customer, not the products. In a sense, we sell our consulting expertise as much as we sell hand dryers."

NetDryers carries most of the major hand dryer brands and features best sellers like the XleratorTM (from Excel Dryers), SMARTdriTM and SLIMdriTM (from World Dryer), the Dyson AirbladeTM, and the ExtremeAirTM series (from American Dryer).
