Record Year in New Office

Record Year in New Office

This month marks the first anniversary for APS UK Ltd in our new building. It has been a really exciting year for us. In terms of staff we have almost doubled our number and are currently also advertising for another new role. By next March the company will have been trading for 20 years, and this year will have been its most successful and progressive.

The pictures show our new offices both before the inner build work started and currently. We had our new office designed and built, allowing us to get something that was just right for our needs, giving us a modern two-floor office and a warehouse to store our stock in. This year has also seen us take delivery of a new van for our site services engineer, complete with the new company livery, which you may have seen on the roads as it has already been driven all over the country to the many sites we work on.

Kayleigh, one of our office staff who joined full time this year, described working here as, A great opportunity to get in to an expanding business at the ground level and have the chance to develop your own role. One of the advantages we have of being a small team is that everyone has an overview of all the work we do, and it also allows each team member to have a significant impact within the company.

Throughout the year we have also been investing in training, to ensure our staff have the correct and up-to-date qualifications and knowledge; guaranteeing we deliver the best services we can. Our staff have completed First Aid courses, SSSTS Qualifications, Advanced Excel, IPAF training, and IOSH courses.

At APS UK we specialise in dust and fume extraction systems, pneumatic conveying systems and Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) testing and servicing. If your company has processes that produce dust, mist, fume, gas or vapour there could be a risk to your staff. This is where we can help design and install a bespoke system to help minimise any exposure and make sure you are fully compliant with COSHH and HSE guidelines.

Adrian Completes 100mile Bike Ride for Charity

Adrian Completes 100mile Bike Ride for Charity

Congratulations to Adrian for completing the Prudential Ride London, a 100mile bike ride made famous by the road race in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The route started in the Olympic Park and the riders had a rare opportunity to cycle through traffic free roads in London before heading out into the countryside to take on the famous Box-Hill zig-zags. The route then headed back in to London, following the Embankment and finishing on The Mall.

Not only was this a chance to complete a personal challenge it was also an opportunity to help raise awareness and money for a great cause. Adrian fundraised for CLIC Sargent, a charity who help and support children and young people with cancer. From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams step in, ready to help, support and guide. They provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and family.

Adrian managed to raise over £500 for this worthy cause and we are really proud of all his efforts.

Installation of Galvanising Bath Extraction System

Installation of Galvanising Bath Extraction System

APS UK Limited recently installed a Dust & Fume Extraction System serving two galvanising baths for a company based on the Yorkshire coast. The company had a very old extraction system that wasn’t meeting their local government emission criteria, and was no longer providing sufficient extraction for the galvanising baths.

The new system we installed included a new reverse jet bag filter which was trace heated and insulated, new ductwork (with the external duct being insulated), a new high efficiency fanset, a filter dosing system and VSD inverter controlled main control panel. The customer’s existing discharge stack was re-used. The control panel is now linked to a pressure transducer which monitors the system pressure and maintains a constant airflow at all times, this ensures the correct extraction is maintained at the galvanising baths and reduces energy usage.

Adrian is taking part in “Ride London” on 30 July 2017

Adrian is taking part in “Ride London” on 30 July 2017 to help raise money for CLIC Sargent, with a £500.00 target in mind.  CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. This is done individually, locally, and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things, like getting well.  And if the worst happens, CLIC Sargent will work with bereaved families to get them support and to help them cope with their emotional pain.

Ride London covers a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, Adrian is currently enjoying training!

If you’d like to help Adrian with this amazing endeavour and even more amazing cause, please follow the link to his JustGiving page.  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Adrian-Ogden
