A LOCAL company has secured exclusive rights to use an innovative sanitising system across the UK and Europe, which has been given its debut in Bradford.

The Royal Oak in Eccleshill became one of the first beneficiaries of the new system last week, ahead of the products launch today.

The Kora Dry Misting process is being rolled out by Impex Parts Group, based in Lowfields Road in Leeds.

Since the Covid-19 lockdown began, the companies have been helping thousands of businesses across the UK return to work in a safe manner by producing sanitiser dispensers and acrylic protective screens to ensure businesses have the adequate health and safety in place.

As a result of this work, the company was approached by American firm G-Clean, which produces a sanitiser which is dispensed through a process called ‘misting’ or ‘fogging’.

Prior to its launch today, 16 units had already been sold, with 33 more potential orders set to come in.

Steve Burrows, owner of Impex Parts, said while this process is nothing new, the sanitiser used is unique.

He said: “The unique chemical that G-Clean produce is organic, and doesn’t contain the harmful chemicals other European manufacturers are producing.

“The key point is that it is quickly applied and it’s safe to return to treated areas after just ten minutes.

“It kills the Covid-19 virus on surfaces and in the air, it’s odourless and it is economic - it would cost less than £1 to dry-mist a car.

“As it is dispersed as a dry-mist, this also means it can be used on electronic devices.

“We’ve secured exclusive rights to market this product in the UK and Europe.”

It takes less than two minutes to learn how to use the sanitising system, and on undisturbed surfaces it lasts for 30 days.

“You just pour the dry-mist in, screw the cap back on and spray it up and down, keeping about two metres from the walls as you do it, and then it’s good to go,” Mr Burrows added.

For its work helping companies get back to business, Impex Parts Group has also been shortlisted in the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards in the Business Enabler of the Year category.

Tony Good runs the Royal Oak in partnership with Stuart and Claire McLean, where the first trial run took place, and following its success has ordered one for each of his 17 pubs.

He added: “I’m convinced that this product is the right one to be using.

“The beauty of it is it’s so easy to use and it’s dry in just 15 minutes.

“If we were to have a Covid outbreak - within 15 minutes it’s gone from all surfaces.”
