Octavius Hunt Christmas Shutdown
As the end of the year approaches, The Octavius Hunt team would like to take the opportunity to say a huge ‘Thank You‘ for your support throughout the year.
It has been a challenging year for all of us and throughout 2020 we have been working hard to keep up with the demand for our disinfectant smoke generator, Fumite™ OPP to stop the spread of infections.
With your help, our amazing network of global distributors, we have successfully maintained the supply of our aerial and surface disinfectant fumer and dry pesticide smokes into international markets, ensuring the protection and safety of enclosed environments.
We had quite a lot of news this year, and although we didn’t get the chance to celebrate them, we hope that next year we will be able to mark these milestones:
- 150 years since the company established itself at the same Bristol site in 1870 as the UK’s first match manufacturer
- 50 years since Octavius Hunt started exporting smoke generators and pellets using their innovative technology to control pests and prevent diseases in enclosed spaces.
- New ownership – our management team completed a company buyout in July.
We will be closed over the Christmas break.
Closing date: Tuesday 15th December midday
Reopening Date: Monday 4th January 2021
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Octavius Hunt!
The power of disinfectant smoke Fumite™ OPP
In these uncertain times, Octavius Hunt has been working hard to keep up with demand for their disinfectant smoke generator, Fumite™ OPP. Along with our network of global distributors the company is successfully maintaining supply of the fumer into international markets to ensure the protection and safety of any enclosed environment.
We all have a responsibility to contribute where we can in this public health crisis and keeping viruses and bacteria away is crucial in the fight to control the spread of infections. Fumigation using Fumite™ OPP is an essential part of any disinfection program. Fumite™ OPP smoke generators are an effective aerial and surface disinfectant against 99.9% of well-known bacteria and viruses.
Fumite™ OPP smoke generators are safe and easy to use. Following label instructions users can successfully disinfect treatment areas with very limited operator exposure. The pre-dosed tins are left in a sealed environment and provide a uniform dispersion of smoke which carries the disinfectant to all surfaces and reaching inaccessible areas for a thorough treatment.
Fumite™ OPP is safe to use in production and storage areas, domestic, commercial and medical premises along with agricultural areas, particularly silos and animal housing. Generators are available in various tin sizes to cater for different treatment areas.
Celebrating 150 years of great value
We are very proud to celebrate our 150 year milestone and it gives us an opportunity to reflect on our history, the growth of the company, the development of strong customer relationships and the innovation of quality products. …READ MORE…>>>
