Gaffey gains key distributors

Article Date: 27 July 2015

In January 2014 Gaffey embarked upon developing an export market for their flagship product, Hyprolyser®, an on-site sodium hypochlorite generation system, which uses salt, water and electricity to produce a chlorine disinfectant for use in many water treatment applications.

The company was established in 1986 by Mike Gaffey and developed as a chemical control and dosing specialist in the commercial swimming pool market. By 1987 Mike had employed his two sons and in 1989, the company embarked upon the small scale manufacture of automatic calcium hypochlorite feed systems for the commercial pool market.

Through the 1990′s the company grew into a leading service and installation provider. It developed several patents and evolved to become a leading UK manufacturer of disinfection and control systems for a wide range of treatment applications including industrial & food processing, brewing, Legionella control, commercial swimming pools and drinking water.

Since its move into the export market in 2014 Gaffey has gained key distributors in Russia, Spain, Austria, Australia and the UAE, and is now concentrating on developing their partner competences and early sales.

Gaffey is gearing up its workshop facilities and staff levels to cope with the steady increase in export business, and also investing in export training for its office staff.

The company employs 18 staff at its premises in Huncoat, with Philip Gaffey leading the company as its Managing Director and Andrew Gaffey as Technical Director.

Andrew Gaffey commented;

“It’s been a very busy 18 months for us in preparing our products, marketing and training materials for export, and in attending exhibitions and meetings in various countries to find the right partners. It’s been a great team effort and we are delighted with the results. We are now looking forward to developing some great business relationships in these new and exciting markets.
