Thomas Dudley scoops major innovation award

Posted on December 8, 2016 by Thomas Dudley Ltd

Innovative developer and manufacturer of Water utility service connection fittings and water meter carriers, Waterfit Ltd, a division of Thomas Dudley has won the Black Country Chamber of Commerce’s coveted Innovation & Technology Award.

The accolade was given to Waterfit’s new Multifit™ product which was launched earlier this year. Multifit™ is a fitting that connects household water supplies to the main pipes, which delivers significant business benefits to water and utility companies, asset owners and contractors.

Rob Ewels, General Manager at Waterfit commented, “This is a proud moment for the business and we are delighted to receive this prestigious award. We’ve worked extremely hard in developing this product and want to thank all those involved in the project. I look forward to seeing Multifit™ help us to work with customers, nationwide and overseas to help them address their key challenges, from leak prevention to speed and simplicity of installation. This product was developed through close collaboration with end users to overcome the problems they experience with traditional products.”

Simon Boyes, Innovation Director added, “The award is so important to Waterfit as it recognises Multifit™ as an innovative, high performance product that helps customers to realise time and cost savings. As such, it has already exceeded initial sales targets, enabled Waterfit to increase its shopfloor workforce by 20% and allowed us to explore new market opportunities as far afield as the Caribbean.”

The Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards took place in November at Wolverhampton Racecourse to celebrate the best in business across the region and were sponsored by Voestalpine Metsec plc.
