Oxford, UK, September 22, 2016: Ozo Innovations (Ozo) has moved to larger, hi-tech premises in Kidlington, Oxfordshire in preparation for the imminent commercial launch of elosystem and the company’s plans to double in size in the next 6 months.
The company’s need to relocate was motivated by strong customer interest for the company’s electrolysed water systems which offer a sustainable advance in the food factory hygiene and food safety solutions. The opportunity presented by the former premises of Drayson Racing Technologies, leaders in high performance electric vehicles, represented an excellent fit for Ozo, offering a unit that was ready to move into with minimal modification.
“The power infrastructure for developing electric racing cars proved to be similar with Ozo’s requirements to use power, salt and water to deliver robust disinfection capability at food factory scale,” said Rowan Gardner, CEO. “We will be expanding our workforce to support our customers’ deployment plans to deliver significant commercial and hygiene benefits to their operations.”
