Columbus, OH – Together & Company is excited to announce the scheduled installation of UV-C PHI technology at both of their event venues, The Fives and The High Line Car House. The UV-C PHI technology or UV-C Photohydroionization, which will be installed by Air Force One at The Fives in July and The High Line Car House later this summer, is an advanced oxidation technology that is installed into the existing HVAC systems to minimize and neutralize indoor air pollutants such as viruses, bacteria, mold, gases, and odors. The technology provides an additional layer of protection in improving indoor air quality by sterilizing the air stream that flows through the HVAC system and continuously sanitizes surfaces and air, providing proactive protection against COVID-19.

The Fives, located at The Reach on Goodale, was scheduled to open in April but has been delayed due to COVID-19. Adding the UV-C PHI technology to the HVAC system makes way for the venue to return to business as a “healthy building” and allows Together & Company to go a step above CDC and government safety recommendations when it comes to hosting events at both The Fives and The High Line Car House. 

“We know that our clients are looking for the safest way possible to proceed with gathering people together in celebration” says Angela Petro, CEO of Together & Company. “The UV-C PHI technology, in conjunction with our dedication to following best practices around COVID 19 safety is something that will help clients feel more confident in making the decision to host their weddings and gatherings”.

Together & Company is also the parent company to Sweet Carrot and Kittie’s Cakes German Village and Bexley. All companies are currently open for business and following the latest guidelines from the CDC and our local health department. All Together & Company, Sweet Carrot, and Kittie’s Cakes employees are required to wear masks, complete a health check before every shift, frequently wash hands, clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and maintain six feet or more of distance from customers.

“We are doing everything we can to keep our employees and clients safe while health and science professionals learn more about controlling the spread of novel coronavirus. UV-C PHI technology has been around for 20 years and has been independently tested by the US military, USDA, US government, and the Electric Power Research Institute, among others. We know it works, we know it’s effective, and we know it meaningfully reduces viruses and pollutants.” Together & Company is currently offering private tours of The Fives and The High Line Car house by appointment.
