ACO sponsors EHEDG World Congress 2018

ACO is proud to be a Gold sponsor of the EHEDG World Congress 2018. Being held at the ExCel exhibition centre in London on 21 and 22 November, the EHEDG World Congress on Hygienic Engineering & Design is the flagship event of the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) and takes place every two years at different locations worldwide.

ACO’s Gold Sponsorship reflects the company’s commitment to EHEDG and to the promotion of hygienic engineering and design in the food and beverage industry. ACO was the first drainage manufacturer to become a member of EHEDG. It played a key role in the foundation of EHEDG Regional Sections in the UK and Ireland, in China, in Czech Republic and in Romania, and is currently helping to establish a regional section in Australia. The Divisional Managing Directors for ACO in both the UK and Ireland, and China continue to sit on the executive committees for these sections, and an ACO representative is joining the EHEDG sub-committee for regional development.

In addition, ACO’s Technical Director authored “The Hygienic Design of Floor Drainage Components” chapter of the EHEDG Yearbook (2013/2014) and ACO initiated the creation of EHEDG guidance document ‘Doc 44’ and, in conjunction with other food industry experts, played a key role in its development.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Martina Cempírková Filippi of ACO, said: “ACO’s collaborative relationship with EHEDG is a core part of our HygieneFirst philosophy – an approach to hygienic drainage design that embodies our commitment to raising standards across every part of the hygienic drainage process from design and installation through to cleaning and ongoing maintenance. We are delighted to be supporting EHEDG’s World Congress in 2018 and to be helping EHEDG drive improvements in food hygiene across the food and drinks manufacturing industry.”
