Comments from the CEO
It has been a hectic period with production and delivery of dynamic glass to Fabege’s project Grand Central Sundbyberg. A number of our earlier delivered projects were taken into operation, including Balderskolan in Skellefteå Municipality and ICEHOTEL 365 in Jukkasjärvi.
During the quarter, the largest order to date was also signed. ChromoGenics will deliver approximately 600m2 of ConverLight™ dynamic glass to Atrium Ljungberg’s project Gränbystaden, Uppsala. Atrium Ljungberg has placed both the environment and corporate responsibility high on its agenda, and selected therefore ConverLight™ because of its effective solar control solution.
In June, the first Dynamic Glass Academy was held at our premises in Uppsala. An event for spreading knowledge and acceptance for the company's dynamic glass at customers and stakeholders about energy efficiency and indoor comfort in building focusing on sustainability. At the end of the same month, ChromoGenics participated in Glass Performance Days, which is one of the world’s largest forum for the glass industry.
We feel that the market is showing considerable interest in our products, and I am convinced that this is just the beginning of a successful journey for ChromoGenics. Our ConverLight™ dynamic glass offers property owners, architects, energy consultants, construction companies and players in the window and façade glass industry an attractive and cost-efficient solution for solar control. ConverLight™ makes it possible to let in a reasonable amount of sunlight and heat without impairing visibility. This significantly improves the indoor climate. ConverLight™ also contributes to buildings energy efficiency by reduced electricity consumption, which is high on the environmental agenda for the sustainability work of both the EU and the commercial sector.
With a strengthened Board and organization, we continue to pursue a rapid expansion by investing in sales and an efficient, reliable production capacity. The considerable interest we are meeting from various market representatives confirms that our unique technology is creating good conditions for continued successful commercialization and future profitability!
