    Paul Anderson ,
    Managing Director

    Paul Anderson has dedicated the last five years to harnessing UV technology for sterilising, disinfection, and air purification in the food and FM industry. His background is in the food manufacturing industry with a time as a government food inspector, technical manager and General manager. It was whilst supplying UV to meat trade that he spotted a gap in the market for the use of UV sterilisation of knives. For Paul, the next logical step was to invent and patent a solution that would eliminate bacteria, without the need for heat or steam which would enhance food safety and reduce energy by up to 99%. The UVC technology was not new, but it was not being used effectively for knives. Sterimiser was born.

    Paul has had extensive hands-on experience in odour control for the waste recycling industry and brought to market a UV odour mitigation system now installed in Europe’s largest indoor waste facility measuring 11,200m2.

    In the waste sector, traditionally huge fans are used to spray perfumed chemicals, a costly way of masking rather than eliminating odours. Paul knew UV could be a viable alternative here too. UV Safe has gone from strength to strength ever since.

    Dr Craig Kirby MRCVS ,
    Technical Consultant

    Craig qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 1995 from the University of Edinburgh. After spending some time in general practice, he moved into the specialised area of meat hygiene and public health. He was ultimately Head of Approvals and Veterinary Advice at the Food Standards Agency (FSA), and before that, an Official Veterniarian in East Anglia for more than 10 years. Originally from South Wales, he is now based in York, and acts as an independent veterinary consultant to the Association of Independent Meat Suppliers AIMS..

    Kim Mead ,
    Contract Business Development

    My main career experience spans 36 years business development in estates and facilities management the last 14 of which have been in internal air quality monitoring and remediation sales (odour elimination and infection control) with an ICT and built environment services bias. I have enjoyed working with technology importers in translating “foreign English” material; particularly web content.

    Aside of Techno – Commercial projects I have also written biographical content and constructed historical tour guides.

    I enjoy public speaking; get by French & Italian and retain an interest in British naval history. I have undertaken visiting tour guiding for Western Asian Antiquities – Levantine history at the British Museum for 34 years.

    The science and its benefits

    We can help you create a safer and cleaner working environment, with the added benefits of huge savings on maintenance costs, water, and energy use, with our cutting-edge UV solutions.

    Ultraviolet light destroys the molecular bonds that hold the DNA of viruses and bacteria together. This quality can be harnessed through ultraviolet germicidal irradiation; a disinfection method (UVGI) that uses short wavelength ultraviolet (UVC) light.

    UVGI devices can produce strong enough UVC light in circulating air or surface systems to make them inhospitable environments to microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, moulds and other pathogens. UVGI has been used for disinfection since the mid-20th century, primarily in medical sanitation and sterile work facilities.
