The Vancouver-based dPoint Technologies Inc. (dPoint), and German-based PAUL Wärmerückgewinnung GmbH (PAUL), both subsidiaries of the Swiss Zehnder Group AG, have come together to form one team under the new name of CORE Energy Recovery Solutions (CORE) to create a global developer and manufacturer of energy recovery ventilation (ERV) components.
The team from CORE will maintain its headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Vancouver and Reinsdorf (Germany).
The newly formed organization will be led by James Dean, founder and CEO of dPoint and Michael Pitsch, managing director from PAUL will now lead operations, Bert Schinkel will lead global sales and Dr. Ryan Huizing will lead R&D.
dPoint is currently a leading force in the development and manufacturing of polymer membranes and cross-flow heat and humidity exchangers for energy recovery ventilation in North American commercial and residential buildings, while PAUL is Europe’s leader in High Efficiency Counter-flow Energy-Recovery Ventilator (ERV) & Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) Exchangers for residential buildings.
“Our two companies have had a strong partnership over the past eight years, with PAUL supplying most of the leading European residential ventilation companies with their innovative Enthalpy Exchangers using dPoint polymer membranes. We will now take our partnership to the next level with one joint team and one mission to become the leading global supplier of energy recovery components,” said James Dean in a company release.
“We chose CORE because it is the perfect word that describes what we create “The CORE”–– which is one of the central, innermost, essential technologies in a ventilation system that make buildings healthy and energy efficient.”
