Leading experts in the cleaning, maintenance and management of kitchen ventilation and grease extract systems, Interduct UK, have been crowned as winners at the Heating and Ventilation News Awards last Thursday.
The awards have been running for 23 years, and are an annual celebration of excellence, forward thinking and the highest achievements across the building services industry. Held at the London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, this year the ceremony saw more than 1,000 people attend from various industry sectors. The evening was hosted by multi award winning comedian and presenter Russell Kane, and after show entertainment included a casino and karaoke bar.
Northamptonshire based Interduct UK, have been recognised for their innovative HCV (Hot Chemical Viscosity) riser cleaning method in the Service and Maintenance Initiative of the Year category. The judges were especially pleased to see how Interduct set out to find a solution to an industry-wide problem.
Andrew Gaved, editor in chief at H&V News commented “I think these Awards demonstrate an industry that’s resilient, innovative and responsive – reacting to everything that’s thrown at it with imagination and passion.”
Their unique cleaning method keeps risers in industrial kitchens safe and compliant all year round. Being the only company in the UK to use this method, developed from their own initiative, the award win is well and truly deserved.
The method and product has been modified over the past four years, to ensure that the system now works extremely well. The team now clean in excess of 500 risers per year, which has led them to hold the title of the largest cleaner of kitchen grease extract risers in the UK. Mark Poultney is the Managing Director at Interduct.
“We’re honoured to say that our innovative HCV riser cleaning method has been recognised and commended in the industry. It is a method that has been perfected by ourselves over the years, and we are confident that there is nothing to rival this in the market currently. To receive such a prestigious award is a great achievement for our team.”
