A quick glance at the exhibition plan reveals that there are six ‘first-time” commercial exhibitors at PestTech 2013. To help you decide who to visit here’s our summary of what you can expect to find when you visit them.

HS Direct is not only exhibiting for the first time, but also presenting a technical workshop on the company’s online health and safety system for pest controllers.

This Sheffield-based company was founded in March 2004. Today it has grown from a small start-up organisation with just a handful of clients to providing Health & Safety assistance to over 6,000 customers annually.

HS Direct’s James Murphy explains: “Our online system has now helped over 5,000 clients overcome Health & Safety barriers, winning clients millions of pounds worth of work that they would not have been able to win without the correct Health & Safety documentation.

“Over the years we have worked with hundreds of customers in the pest control industry to perfect our offering, and we are still working with customers to improve our systems today. Many in the pest control industry are very small companies and do not have the in-house skills to be able to complete competent Health & Safety documentation. This is where our service comes in. Working with pest controllers we have created a large selection of professionally written documentation available through our online Safety First Package. We are open 363 days a year to provide support to customer when they need us the most, and our price guarantee, ‘if you can find the same service elsewhere for less you can have it for free for a year’ makes sure we are the best value available.”

NPTA has negotiated a special deal for members so go along to the presentation or visit stand 43 or email James to find out more.

Another Sheffield-based business, Control Zone Products (CZP),is also attending for the first time.The company’s Matt Haslem says that they are proud to offer a range of Yorkshire-made insect killers, glueboards and UV lamps.

Sheffield is synonymous with steel production and famed for its fine production of cutlery and engineering that shaped the world.

Matt explains: “We are proud to offer a range of insect control products that are the finest build, are very effective and easy to service! As a specialist in the production of insect killers our competitive edge will help pest control companies.

“At the same time, unlike many other companies who now have to rely on the Far East, we are investing in the UK.Our team has over 30 years experience in designing quality insect killers and we have successfully launched into many countries, including the USA, where we have a warehouse in Atlanta GA. From here we build and despatch to the whole of the US.

“We are now looking to work with UK pest control companies and we look forward to giving companies an alternative choice to the many Far East produced products currently on the UK market.”
