Sally R uses space technology, on earth, to save energy in buildings. This to guarantee a healthy indoor climate. The company was founded in February 2016 and has its base in Västerås, Sweden. The entrepreneurs behind the innovative company are the childhood friends Viktor Kjellberg, Fredrik Edström and Anders Edström. Fredrik and Anders are the ones working with the technique while Viktor is working with financials and marketing. Fredrik was also one of the founders of Airwatergate in 2009, a company that today has 10 employees and has been listed on the prestigious ”33-listan”.
The interest in space has always been great for the founders and the Idea behind Sally R comes primarily from when they started finding interest in how to clean air in spacecrafts where there’s not possible to get fresh air from outside. Now a patent has been applied for a method of reducing energy consumption in buildings while also cleaning indoor air. Initially, they focus on the real estate industry and the plan is to have a product on the market in the end of 2017.
The name Sally R is inspired by the first female astronaut in the United States, Sally Ride.
