VORTICE, which has been UK-based since 1977 and is part of the VORTICE Group, has seen a restructure of the UK division with newly appointed General Manager Stephen Smith. This exciting time has seen VORTICE implement a brand new management system and complete service solution for the private landlord to help combat issues with mould and damp.
VORTICE also announces the appointment of new Sales Director for Social Housing, Paul Harrington. Paul is a residential ventilation specialist with over 25 years’ experience solving issues associated with poor ventilation performance e.g., condensation, mould growth and overheating.
Paul is a lead trainer for the Property Care Association’s Residential Ventilation Masterclass and is an expert in Regulatory Compliance.
He will have the further support by Regional Sales Managers Morgan Haggar, Dan Evans and Natalie Miller.
The direction of this new division is to specifically offer landlords the complete specialised solution in ensuring properties are fully compliant and habitable for their tenants. Recent headlines only emphasise the repercussions of incorrect or uncompliant living conditions that tenants face and the landlord’s responsibility to ensure adequate ventilation.
Paul Harrington comments: “VORTICE is offering landlords a complete service solution with regard to the issue of condensation, black mould and correct ventilation solutions.
“VORTICE will offer the knowledge and expertise by offering site evaluations, survey reports and completion certificates to ensure a fully compliant solution.”
To further support this, VORTICE has a brand new website for the new social housing division – www.vorticemouldsolutions.co.uk. This enables landlords to book the survey quickly and easily, check an information hub and supporting regulatory documents.
