The Chairman of Flintshire, Ray Hughes returned to Russell IPM on Wednesday, one year on from his first visit to the headquarters. The Councillor was given a special tour of the factory and a behind the scenes look at Russell’s latest innovations in product development.
The visit was organised following Councillor Ray’s attendance at last year’s special charity day where Russell IPM celebrated raising £100,000 for Leukaemia and Lymphoma research, Councillor Ray had just taken on his new role as Chairman and gave a fantastic speech to all 50 employees at the company. His journey as Chairman had come full circle, as his first public speech in the position was given at Russell and one year on he returned for one of his very last acts as Chairman.
Russell IPM welcomed Councillor Ray back with open arms as they were keen to learn about his year and all the charity work he had completed during his time on the council. The Chairman was equally impressed by the hardworking staff and latest product developments at Russell IPM.
Production manager Kathy Fennah provided the guided tour for the Chairman and his consort Gwenda, who were full of questions about each product and the team.
The iPest system seemed to really intrigue the Chairman, as Kathy explained how the technology provides real time updates on rodent activity straight to the pest controllers smartphone, providing 24/7 remote monitoring of food facilities.
Russell IPM would like to thank the Chairman and his Consort for taking the time to return to Russell and for all the help and support he provided for the charity work in the past.
