Global water technology company, Xylem (NYSE: XYL), has won Sweden’s ‘Comfort Supplier of the Year Award 2017’.

Xylem received the highest score (4.4 out of a possible total of five) from Comfort members to win the prestigious award. Xylem’s focus on excellent customer service, timely project delivery and technical expertise was highlighted by customers as being of an exceptional standard.

Xylem beat strong competition from many well-known building services brands to win the award which was announced at a ceremony during Comfort’s recent annual summit, with 450 guests in attendance.

Göran Swedérus, CEO Comfort-Kedjan AB said: “Xylem’s expansive footprint throughout Sweden and ability to provide efficient customer service right across the country was highlighted by our member companies as very positive. The company’s technical excellence, coupled with a broad portfolio of advanced solutions that deliver savings in terms of both initial investment and life cycle cost, was also noted as one of the reasons for the award win. We are delighted to have Xylem as a Comfort supplier and look forward to further strengthening our partnership in the coming years.”

Xylem has been a supplier for Comfort since 2012. With 130 member companies and 1800 certified technicians, Comfort is the largest installation chain on the Swedish market dealing with heating ventilation and air conditioning/building services (HVAC/BS). As Sweden is the third largest country in Europe but with a relatively low population of 10 million, the Comfort network offers national coverage, enabling it to serve customers across Sweden.

Anders Engström, Managing Director of Xylem Sweden said: “We are very proud to receive this award, particularly as it was chosen by our customer Comfort. Providing excellent customer service is at the heart of what we do every day. We look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of great customer service and technical excellence.”

Among the technologies Xylem provides to Comfort customers is the company’s recently upgraded Lowara ecocirc XL and ecocirc XLplus high efficiency wet rotor circulators that provide state-of-the-art technology in hydraulics, motors and intelligent controls. The easy-to-install ecocirc XL and ecocirc XLplus are designed with simplicity and efficiency in mind.
