A Doncaster provider of decontamination services to labs across the country is operating seven days a week to help in the ongoing fight against coronavirus.
IP&C Solutions has extended its services to cover sites including hospitals, schools, play areas and workplaces.
In addition to fumigation, the company installs laboratory equipment and has also been helping set up new testing facilities around the country to meet the growing demand.
IP&C, which is one of only a handful of specialists in the UK, serves a number of clients including Oxford and Cambridge Universities and the NHS.
The company recently received a £150,000 loan to support its growth from NPIF – Mercia Debt Finance, which is managed by Mercia and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.
“Currently we are working seven days a week to assist the fight against this particularly nasty virus. Alongside our laboratory work we have decontaminated ships, schools, offices and warehouses as well as hospitals and emergency vehicles in order to keep things moving,” said Neil Anderson, who co-founded the company in 2017 with Carol Duke.
“In some cases, the sites have closed down but the managers want reassurance that the building is virus-free or that it is safe to move equipment off site. Where locations have remained up and running, fumigation provides an additional safeguard.
“While we are at the sharp end in the fight against coronavirus, we are working to support the NHS and laboratory staff. Our job is all about safety and gives the people working there greater peace of mind. When we turn up on site, everyone is pleased to see us.”
