As the drive to net zero accelerates, the ACR News Awards provides an excellent platform to showcase the best our industry has to offer to support the decarbonisation effort.

From developments in refrigerants to the latest online tools to optimise systems, the awards shine a spotlight on the technologies and services set to transform the nation’s thermal economy.

For our part, this theme is written through BITZER as a business, with investment on a global scale to develop ever-more efficient and environmentally sustainable solutions for our customers.

As well as helping to shape the future, we also believe in honouring the past and those who have contributed much to the success and standing of our industry. The Alan Moor Award was established with this aim in mind, to commemorate our illustrious former Managing Director, who, despite the passing of years, is still fondly remembered by many colleagues in the industry.

The event is not only a focus for innovation, but also a great opportunity to get together informally with colleagues and customers for what is always a relaxing and entertaining evening, professionally organised by the dedicated ACR News team.

We wish all those entering every success, and look forward to another enjoyable evening in London at the ACR News Awards 2023.

Fieldpiece, here to make your job easier, faster, and better!
From the humble beginnings in the founder’s garage in 1990, to the international organization Fieldpiece is today. The mission at Fieldpiece has remained the same. To provide tools that HVACR professionals can trust and make their life easier, faster, and better.

“If we can’t make it better for the technician in the field, we don’t do it”.

It is a simple promise and one we’ve kept for over 32 years. At Fieldpiece, we believe that every HVACR professional in the field needs the best tools possible. We know what techs in the field need because we are out with them every day.

Fieldpiece was founded 32 years ago and has grown from a typical garage company into an organisation with 118 professionals in both the USA and Europe. We have always focused on HVACR test & tools, like digital manifolds, vacuum pumps, and leak detectors. Today, Fieldpiece is the US market leader with a 26,2% market share. In 2019, we have opened our European Head Office and European warehouses in the UK and in the Netherlands. We are proud to say that we now have a team of 15 professionals in place, dedicated to the EMEA market.
From the start, Fieldpiece has continued to develop game-changing technology like the SMAN® Digital Manifold which is IP54 waterproof, our wireless Job Link® System probes that have a wireless range of 300 meters or the RunQuick™ Oil system in our vacuum pumps that allow you to change the oil in just a few seconds.

The Fieldpiece family of products has many things in common. They’re tough and versatile and can handle the demands of working in HVACR such as extreme weather conditions, falling in a van or being able to read measurements through thick, isolated walls. From the beginning, we have always listened to the professionals in the field to determine exactly what they need and what they struggle with so we can design products that make the life of HVACR professional easier, faster and better. Every day.

Established in Feltre, Belluno in 1989 by Bruno Bellò, the company began its activity with the production of chillers and heat pumps. Then Clivet develops innovative specialized systems based on Roof-top units, WLHP Systems (Water Loop Heat Pump) and residential systems.

In 2016, thanks to the strategic alliance with MIDEA Group, Clivet completes its offer integrating it with MIDEA’s products, technology and sales structure, offering the market a complete and competitive range of chiller, heat pump, packaged, mono and multi split, VRF solutions.

Today, buildings have to deliver an elevated and constant standard of well-being, regardless of the outside conditions. Not all buildings are alike: depending on their use, there are considerable differences in terms of load intensity, simultaneous requests for hot and chilled water, domestic hot water production and air renewal.

That is why Clivet has created a series of specialised system solutions for applications that meet the specific needs of different buildings by optimising the overall efficiency in relation to traditional systems (boiler, chiller, AHU). Clivet’s specialised systems simplify the design and installation work, improve the control of the entire system, reduce the environmental impact and, at the same time, optimise the initial investment, reduce running costs, increasing the building’s energy rating and therefore its value on the market.
