EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 20, 2014--Excel Dryer, Inc., manufacturer of the original, patented, high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOR R hand dryer, introduces the new XLERATOR ecoR hand dryer. The XLERATOR ecoR uses new "no heat" technology to dry hands in 15 seconds* using only 500 watts, making it the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly hand dryer on the planet.
"At Excel Dryer, we put a lot of energy into saving it," said Vice President of Marketing William Gagnon. "XLERATOR ecoR continues Excel Dryer's commitment to providing the most cost effective and energy-efficient hand dryers with the same proven performance, reliability and durability expected from Excel Dryer products."
XLERATOR ecoR sets another new industry standard in green innovation and sustainability.
