Peterborough-based Spirotech Group, specialist engineers who provide manufacturing solutions for a range of industries, have been officially recognised by Cambridgeshire County Council for their work during the Covid pandemic.
This is part of a new initiative by the council to celebrate the work of ‘Individuals, businesses and community groups who have tirelessly supported those in need since the start of lockdown.’
Spirotech were nominated by Cllr Simon Baywater for helping to install safety screens in numerous shops, helping to protect staff and business, and ensuring that these shops could stay open for business.
Cllr Mac McGuire, Chairman of Cambridgeshire County Council, said:
“On behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council, I would like to thank Spirotech for your contribution and I am delighted to attach a Chairman’s commendation certificate as recognition of your services and support during the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘We also plan to honour your organisation publicly on the County Council website as part of a ‘roll of honour’ and plan to mention the work you have done as part of our ongoing media updates about how Cambridgeshire came together and supported each other during this time.
‘My congratulations on your remarkable efforts and thanks to all at Spirotech Group.’
Spirotech’s directors said they were ‘delighted’ to receive the commendation.
Writing in The Parliamentary Review in 2019, Spirotech’s owners David and Russel Gadsby discussed the diversity of their projects:
‘We work to our clients’ needs, which can often be diverse, but we always ensure they receive a finished product that they are happy with. Our experience has allowed us to produce a number of items on request, and our team has such versatile skills that we are always looking to solve engineering problems for our clients.
‘The work we do is varied, with a number of repeat local clients providing us business, alongside manufacturing companies from the emerging markets.
‘A key strength of our service is our ability to respond to the market. Engineering is constantly changing and we understand and embrace it.’
We can now look back and realise that these were very prescient words indeed. The market changed like never before and Spirotech were certainly able to respond.
