Industry Oscar for Adey
Published: 15 September, 2009
CHELTENHAM: Independent manufacturer Adey Professional Heating Solutions has collected the biggest vote of confidence at the UK heating and plumbing industry’s Oscars ceremony.
The manufacturer of MagnaClean technology received the British installers’ product of the year in front of more than 1000 industry peers at the gala Corgi Awards 2009 in Coventry.
The industry award, Installers’ Mate of the Year, is for the product that makes everyday working life easier for the UK’s engineers within the heating and plumbing sector. It is voted for exclusively by installers and is open to manufacturers of new and innovative products.
It is the first award of its kind for Adey and recognises the company’s advanced MagnaClean Professional filter which maintains and protects new and existing central heating systems.
The high efficiency, full-flow magnetic filter removes virtually 100% of the suspended black iron oxide that builds up in all central heating systems reducing efficiency and damaging the boiler, effectively shortening its operational life. It has enough capacity to remove almost 300g of sludge from a central heating system.
The product is the invention of company founder Chris Adey who was delighted with the recognition received from the industry.
“This means a great deal to me and to Adey as a company because it doesn’t just come from the industry, it comes from the heart of the industry. It comes from the installers who are the lifeblood of the sector. So, to receive such a massive vote of confidence for MagnaClean Professional from them is fantastic,” he says.
“It’s also the result of a huge amount of hard work over recent years and couldn’t have been possible without an incredible level of commitment from everyone throughout the company. The team we have in place is exceptional and everyone has played a part.”
