A leading heating and plumbing product manufacturer has rounded off 2020 with its best ever month of trading and a major industry award win.
Intatec, based in Hixon, Staffordshire, achieved its best ever month across all sales metrics in October 2020.
This was followed by a double success at the annual H&V Awards, which recognises success in the world of plumbing, heating and ventilation.
The company, which began trading in 2002, has remained active throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic, with a record 340,000 individual items picked, packed and dispatched in October.
Part of the boost in sales comes from products such as its non-touch infrared tap, with adjustable 20 second timer designed for public washrooms, as well as its ActivFlo water conditioning unit that alleviates limescale issues in hard water areas.
Director, Stuart Gizzi, said: “Our team has pulled together magnificently throughout 2020, despite the challenges faced by all businesses as we adapted to ever-changing Government and health and safety guidelines.
“The credit for our success in October is shared across the board.
“This year has been difficult for everyone, but I’m pleased that we have been able to play our part in the supply chain that has continued to support our customers with the products they need to deliver their projects, many of which have been destined for improvements in healthcare settings.
“To have achieved what we have in such difficult circumstances is astounding and a source of great pride for myself.
“We have a number of exciting product launches coming in 2021 and we are looking forward to a brighter future for everyone.”
October’s success was followed by Inta taking home top prize in the Smiths Brothers Stores Commercial HVAC Product of the Year category and Highly Commended in Safety Initiative of the Year at the H&V Awards.
Inta’s thermostatic TMV 3 non-concussive tap took home the product of the year prize. The first-of-its kind tap combines time flow control, which prevents water wastage with thermostatic control, which allows accurate blending of water temperatures.
The company’s renewed and revised anti-scald information booklet, titled 'Inta's Guide to Thermostatic Protection' listing key safety information and product relating to anti-scald technology, was recognised in the safety initiative category.
This achievement marked the culmination of a decade of success, which has seen Inta nominated in at least one category every year since 2010.
Mr Gizzi said: “To be consistently in the conversation for leading products and initiatives in our industry is where we aim to be and I am delighted to have achieved this.”
