Article from Lincolnshire Telegraph - Issue 42:
Throughout the year, the Directors at the Lincolnshire Telegraph, select company’s that have best demonstrated a proven ability to go that extra mile in not only meeting but exceeding the needs of their clients.
Therefore, in line with this philosophy it gives us pleasure to announce -
SLURRYKAT LTD has been selected to receive the BA PRODUCT OF INNOVATION AWARD OF THE YEAR 2009. As a completely independent Award Programme, acknowledging business excellence across a wide range of disciplines, the Business Achievement Award is recognised both locally and nationally.
This Award serves as a distinguishing factor, ranking SLURRY KAT LTD amongst the best in its field, as well as acting as a seal of approval to prospective clients.
Commenting on receiving this accolade, Garth Cairns, owner of the company said: “We are honoured to receive such recognition for our products. In the past two years we have made significant advances using modern engineering techniques to push our products to new levels previously unseen before.”
“We were driven mainly by the new EU regulations imposed in Ireland for slurry spreading and the aim was not solely to meet the regulations but also we used this as a cornerstone to enable farmers to get more nutrition value from their slurry and in turn they can experience significant financial savings with using SlurryKat equipment.
This has been readily demonstrated and proven in the past 18 months with all our customers, some of which have reduced their fertiliser’s bills by up to 80% and still achieved the same outputs from their farms by using the SlurryKat system.
Having reached these new advances, we are already working on new prototype designs to move on to new higher levels and new equipment from these designs will be seen towards the end of the year so
stand by.” As a rapidly growing company using the latest high tech engineering techniques to produce high quality products, SlurryKat is the market leader in the manufacture of umbilical slurry pumping systems for agriculture and industry.
SlurryKat Contracts Division offers a full range of contracting services to farmers in the north of Ireland and specialises mainly in umbilical slurry spreading using SlurryKat’s latest spreading technologies.
The Contracting Division has grown rapidly to become one of the largest slurry contractors in Ireland today and it is this vital link, providing the knowledge for design and rigorous testing of all the products, which enables SlurryKat to produce equipment of the highest quality available on the market today.
