Covid-19

UPDATE: As at 20th July the team is starting to return to our offices. We have carried out a series of detailed risk assessments and produced a set of guidelines. Please see our policies here

As a business we have started 2020 on a very positive front and are committed to maintaining this position during the Pandemic and beyond. As a result, you will see our marketing campaigns going ahead as normal ensuring we continue to build our brand within the Food and Drinks industry.

Here’s what we have been up to:

Free Advice & Consultancy

We are showing our commitment to the UK Food Industry by offering FREE ADVICE AND CONSULTANCY to help keep Producers supported, fully operational and feeding the nation safely and efficiently during the current crisis.

It’s our way to give back to the UK Food and Drinks Industry and say thank you for the projects we have received from you during the last 44 years. Giving back our expertise in the provision of a wide range of air handling and product cooling applications.

Completing ongoing contracts

We are installing systems essential for business continuity – and are currently working on the new air handing and dehumidification system at Quorn Foods. We are able to do this through careful planning and by working closely with client teams, producing rigorous risk assessments and method statements ensuring everybody’s safety.

New system design is also ongoing to keep existing and proposed projects supply chain running

Displacement Air Handling can help protect your employees from COVID-19 in the workplace

Given our experience of implementing this technology for major Food Producers for the last 25 years we are well placed to offer the solution to other industry sectors as a means of safeguarding employees now and into the future.

As we now enter the phase of this pandemic where you are formulating plans to get your team back to work, measures must be put in place to maintain social distancing to mitigate against the potential airborne spread of this or other viruses. However, more can be done using tried and tested technology.

Displacement air handling solutions can positively address challenges in your work place and keep employees safe. Read more here.

  • HVAC Engineering Draughtsman

Nurturing and supporting our team

People are the biggest assets of our business. Every member of the Penmann team has embraced lockdown and remote working with absolute focus and we seem to have developed even stronger bonds during this time with everyone committed to the main objective – supporting our clients in the UK food and drinks industry as if there were no pandemic.

Two weeks before lockdown we welcomed Jack Hepworth, Trainee Engineer, to the team. He may well be thinking he is living in some sort of surreal universe but he’s adapted, been welcomed and has contributed significantly. Read more here.  

Thanking clients for your support during these strange times.
