Rabbit Air Receives Technology Award
Selected 2009 U.S. Small Business Administration's "Innovation Through Technology Business of the Year" for Los Angeles
Last month, Rabbit Air received the "Innovation Through Technology Business of the Year" Award from the Small Business Administration (SBA) Los Angeles District Office as recognition for their commitment to creating the most innovative and efficient air purification system.
For instance, with the Rabbit Air's bioengineered HEPA filtration which traps and reduces allergens down to 0.3 microns in size, Rabbit Air offers impeccable filtration to reduce pet dander, dust mites, pollen, mold and other allergens. In addition, Rabbit Air's Brushless Direct Current Motor reduces the problem of noisy brushes and wasted energy due to friction, not to mention brush wear and tear.
The San Gabriel Valley Tribune recognized Rabbit Air's achievement and current expansion, adding, "the business has expanded […], and they are adding employees at a time when many businesses are laying them off."
