IPS Join the Great British Spring Clean - Will You?

Andrew Lamb Business Development Director with two volunteers 
Last month IPS Flow Systems signed up to the Great British Spring Clean, backed by the Daily Mail.  More than 80,000 volunteers have pledged their time and energy to join a nationwide battle to clean up Britain.

IPS have encouraged staff to get involved in local clean up campaigns and plan to encourage neighbouring businesses to join in.

This weekend, our Business Development Director, Andrew Lamb joined a group of councillors and volunteers in his home town in the first of a series of litter picks that will take place until the 23rd April.



Andrew joined by Spennymoor Town Mayor, Clive Maddison & Cllr Kathy Thompson 

Please follow our example and host your own litter-pick - and here's a thought - lets keep it going throughout the year!!

Just some of the litter picked up on mothering Sunday - Well Done Guys

Congratulations - Kevin Nixon for 25 years service


Kevin Nixon being congratulated by Steve Hunter - Sales Director

2019 will see a number of colleagues celebrate significant milestones at IPS!  Today the whole of the company came together to congratulated Kevin Nixon who celebrates 25 years at the company (the cream cakes are on him!!).

Kevin started his working life when ships were still being built in Sunderland and 'flanges were wooden' and constantly reminds us that he was not merely a 'plumber' but a 'marine plumber and coppersmith'!

Kev, now likes nothing more than messing around on his beloved scooter (when it's working), although this year he has committed to swapping one set of wheels for another by joining the IPS cycling team on a coast to coast bike ride in aid of charity.

We thought that you would like to see some pictures from his time at IPS....





I'm a marine plumber & coppersmith, Actually!

Here's to the next 25 years Kev!!
