Dortek invests in Bio Decontamination Ltd

DortekDortek Ltd, UK and Ireland’s leading supplier of hygienic doors to the healthcare, laboratory and pharmaceutical sectors, has invested in Bio Decontamination Ltd (BDL), of Hull. Dortek will now be offering cutting-edge vapourised hydrogen peroxide (VHP) fumigation solutions in addition to its core hygienic door products across its customer base in the UK and internationally.

BDL was founded in 2006 to provide safe, efficient infection control and prevention for many sectors including, healthcare, pharmaceutical manufacturing, life sciences, research laboratories and animal welfare. Mike Aitchison, the company founder, will continue to play a leading role in technical development and day-to-day running of the business.

Dortek have invested in BDL because of its unique, patented decontamination process, designed specifically to remove problematic spores. Used either as a proactive, preventative system, or as a reactive solution, the process eliminates the numerous pathogens found in hospitals, pharmaceutical production, research labs, or any facility where sterile conditions are essential.

Unlike traditional formaldehyde or chlorine-based decontamination, BDL’s process is very efficient, and facilities can be up and running within two hours of the decontamination process. The hydrogen peroxide is administered as a dry vapour, allowing furniture including sensitive medical equipment to be decontaminated as well, without leaving any harmful residues.

Glenn Hogarth, Dortek UK Commercial Manager, said “Investing in BDL is a big step forward for Dortek. Our hygienic doors are fitted in areas where cleanliness, hygiene and the eradication of harmful pathogens are imperative. These areas often need fumigating, so we are integrating BDL’s innovative VHP solutions as part of Dortek’s product offering to our extensive UK and International customer base, as well as promoting the service in a number of new sectors where we can add real value.”

Dortek is a market leader in the manufacture and supply of hygienic door solutions to a wide range of sectors including the international pharma, healthcare, food and retail sectors. Recognised throughout the markets for its commitment to innovation, quality and customer service, over the last 40 years, Dortek has manufactured and installed more than 200,000 door sets. Dortek has two facilities; one in Ireland and one in the UK.
