What a year we’ve had at Zip…

As 2019 draws to a close, we’re celebrating another great year of providing homes and workplaces across the UK with the world's most advanced drinking water solutions. Let’s take a look at some of our 2019 highlights!

January 2019 – We bring you the new HydroCare service plans

Whether you’re a facilities manager, homeowner or specifier, there’s nothing more important than products that are durable, reliable and efficient. Launched in January, our HydroCare service plans provide tailored and convenient pre-scheduled maintenance and servicing, ensuring your products not only perform to the best of their ability but also stand the test of time. 

March 2019 - We add electric vans to our service fleet

As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we took delivery of the first of our electric vans. Reducing emissions in the London area is crucial to ensure the air we breathe remains healthy for future generations, so we’re proud to do our bit!

May 2019 – Selecting the perfect HydroTap got easier with the launch of the online product selector

To make it easier for you to specify the perfect HydroTap, no matter the requirements, we launched our HydroTap product selector in May. Presenting you with an opportunity to find out more about the different options available, the product selector makes deciding on the right model easy, showing finishes, number of cups or glasses it can produce per hour, access to specification sheets, what accessories it can be paired with and more.

July 2019 – Zip helps Apache reduce its single-use plastic bottle consumption

Trying to find a water provider to match their sustainable ethos, Apache North Sea chose our responsible drinking water dispenser, Zip HydroChill, to help them reduce single-use plastic waste in their office headquarters. Within two months of installation the sale of bottled water and their subsequent single-use plastic waste decreased by an impressive 48%! Find out more here..

October 2019 – We launch the exclusive Zip Water x FMJ e-book

Dedicated to eradicating single-use plastics for the longevity of the planet, in partnership with Facilities Management Journal (FMJ) we created a survey that asked for facilities managers’ perspectives on drinking water and sustainability within the industry. With some revealing findings from our initial survey, we created a dual-branded e-book that explored the drinking water dilemma, providing FMs with insights and a range of industry commentary to help them eradicate single-use plastic bottles in the workplace.

November 2019 – Our drinking water in the workplace brochure appears in OnOffice magazine

As a leader in sustainable drinking water solutions that positively impact health and wellbeing, we created a 32 page insert to educate OnOffice’s readers on the benefits of workplace hydration. Through a variety of informative articles, inspiring case studies and details of our products and services, the brochure presented readers with practical solutions to positively impact their workplaces.

The first and last word in drinking water solutions, 2020 will see us continuing to help those in a specification role to consider sustainability, wellbeing and the importance of hydration. Our product range will continue to develop – with exciting changes to be announced next year – as we continue to advance and perfect our drinking water technology as we’ve done for decades.
