CO2Meter.com is a proud member of the the International Beverage Dispensing Equipment Association (IBDEA) since 2013. IBDEA is a non-profit trade association representing companies that sell, lease, rent, manufacture and service beverage dispensing equipment and supplies.
"the IBDEA is a leader in promoting carbon dioxide storage safety nationally," said Ray Hicks, CTO of CO2Meter.com. "For example, they developed the Bulk CO2 Safety Guidelines for remote CO2 storage. These guidelines are used by manufacturers servicing CO2 storage tanks at thousands of restaurants nationwide. This kind of pro-active, voluntary, yet comprehensive industry best-practices should be a model for other organizations, and it is one we're proud to support."
A little bit of background is that IBDEA was formed in 1971 as the National Soda Dispensing Equipment Association, when a group of businessmen decided it was in their best interests to share common information and approach industry-wide problems - focusing on resolutions for the advancement and furtherance of the beverage dispensing equipment industry. Over time the Association's name was changed to the International Beverage Dispensing Equipment Association to encompass all beverages and to acknowledge IBDEA's members operating throughout the world.
In gearing together with the IBDEA, CO2Meter believes that the membership provides tremendous relationships with suppliers in the beverage and gas community, extensive educational resources, and the chance to truly connect with one another at the annual IBDEA conference.
Director of Marketing, Morgan Morris states, "Our membership with the IBDEA has given us tremendous leverage in terms of being able to network with those in the industry and continue to provide key education on the topic of CO2 safety. By acting a vital "go-to" resource to those in the community, our team focuses on education as a primary goal and we are able to also gain the same education in terms of beverage insights, trends, and expanding our own technologies from the IBDEA."
