Alfa Laval Ltd appoints WHP as Authorised Integrator
Hygienic fluid handling technology leader Alfa Laval has announced WHP as its latest Authorised Integrator, helping enhance the sustainability of the engineering solutions provider’s operations.
The new partnership is the latest in a long relationship between the two companies, with knowledge being shared to manage customers’ environmental impact. By working with Alfa Laval, WHP’s clean room, clean manufacturing solutions and complex process systems will gain further visibility with the organisation’s target audiences.
“This development is the latest in our strategy to expand our distribution and integration operations within the UK market,” said Leonardo Morabito, Business Unit Manager, Hygienic Fluid Handling at Alfa Laval UK and Ireland. “WHP has a sterling reputation as a world-class leader in supply and design services across a number of industries, standing out for its ability to offer ‘clean room’ managed environments and turnkey process packages. As the only authorised Alfa Laval partner within key markets, we look forward to offering WHP support providing their clients with comprehensive engineering solutions, and further strengthening our ongoing relationship.”
A specialist in the modular design and turnkey projects for cleanroom construction, laboratories, R&D and suites or facilities for containment and evaluation, Gateshead-based WHP provide end-to-end design-and-build services to clients varying from blue-chips to start-ups. Following its ongoing commitment to responsible business and corporate sustainability, the engineering firm has put further reducing its carbon footprint at the forefront of its priorities.
This commitment has translated into the company recycling 98% of all waste produced and reducing energy consumption by 20% over the last 12 months, alongside ISO 14001:2015 accreditation and the implementation of a mature Environmental Management System. As well as this, WHP strive to design sustainable facilities with careful consideration to materials chosen, power and water usage use, and indoor air quality.
The company’s attainment of Authorised Integrator status is the latest in its steps to developing its sustainability strategy, and promote eco-conscious development and behaviours in its customers, workforce and larger supply chain. WHP can now make further use of Alfa Laval’s extensive in-house experience to provide internal and external upskilling, and deliver more sustainable and efficient designs to the sectors in which it operates.
Ian Lichfield, CEO of WHP, added: “WHP has a long trading history with Alfa Laval and I am delighted that we are now the Alfa Laval Authorised Partner for the pharma and healthcare markets we serve. We are thrilled to be aligned with such an internationally recognised brand that stands for quality, and I am looking forward to working closely with the Alfa Laval team to enable WHP to offer customers the best engineering solutions and the highest levels of technical support.”
