Calgary, Canada (May 12, 2021) - Digital noise suppression company, ZeroSound Systems Inc. (ZeroSound), announces the fully subscribed close of its Series A financing with private group J.V. Driver Investments Inc. The funds will accelerate international scale and growth and the implementation of ZeroSound’s OEM Agreement with Rosenbauer Motors LLC to deploy its proprietary technology as a standard feature on all Rosenbauer’s new-build fire trucks. The technology will protect first responders from the dangerous health impacts of noise pollution.
As one of Calgary’s newest tech companies, ZeroSound has created a scalable platform that reduces noise exposure by up to 92% (-35 dB) in both indoor and outdoor applications for Urban Infrastructure, Industrial, Energy & Extraction, Rail & Logistics, Facilities and Emergency Services markets.
According to the World Health Organization, noise pollution is a growing global problem known to cause hearing impairment, hypertension, annoyance, sleep disturbance, and heart disease. Traditional noise reduction uses physical barriers or insulation that absorb and reflect sound waves while ZeroSound’s digital technology measures and digitally cancels the soundwaves using a combination of proprietary hardware and software.
“Having a strategic investor like JV Driver Investments as a partner is a clear vote of confidence in our leadership, technology and immediate opportunities.” says Norm Bogner, President and Co-Founder of ZeroSound. This partnership will not only speed our entry into the international emergency services markets but into multiple industrial, commercial and consumer noise suppression global opportunities.”
Chuck Sanders, President of JV Driver Investments added, “The ZeroSound team has shown insight and expertise in developing this proprietary technology to a prevalent issue. With established partnerships and market advantages, we are confident ZeroSound will change the way we all look at the effects of noise pollution and how to actively reduce its harmful effect.”
