Beppe Fumagalli, CEO of Candy Group.

The new European energy label for the vacuum cleaner market came into force on September 1st. The main novelties are the limits to the nominal input power and to the sound level of vacuum cleaners, as well as the introduction of a new label in order to highlight cleaning performances and energy efficiency. Hoover is committed to improve its appliances in accordance with the new regulation and has presented at IFA four A++ class models and three A+ class models. “We are extremely favorable to the introduction of the new energy label that, in our opinion, is a great value for the consumers – said Beppe Fumagalli, CEO of Candy Group -. In particular, the new label, which introduces a limit on the electrical consumption and the noise reduction, is bringing significant benefits to the users of our products in compliance with the best environmental and service standards”.
