One of the world’s most eagerly anticipated motorsport shows is underway at Stoneleigh Park this weekend, with the annual Race Retro event drawing visitors from all four corners of the globe.
In recent years, Andrews Heat for Hire has been involved with the action and supported current European Rally Champion Chris Ingram with some of his previous appearances. Our connection to motorsport spans several decades and began with what was, until recently, a world record 17-year sponsorship of rally icon Russell Brookes.
An airport located in the South East was forced to find a temporary solution following the disastrous failure of their ageing boiler system. Temporary equipment was urgently required to keep workers warm and ensure the continuous running of daily operations until a permanent boiler replacement could be sourced.
The size and scale of the average hangar makes them notoriously difficult to heat in a cost-effective manner, as pointed out by the client. Essentially, they were looking for a short-term source of heating that could deliver large volumes of warm air economically while their boiler system was out of action. Large numbers of people work inside the hangar each day, ranging from mechanics, transport staff, strategists and cleaners. The working environment is therefore extremely important, with low temperatures a potential safety issue.
When a renowned construction company in London required a temporary heating solution for a large housing development, Andrews Heat for Hire was contacted and asked to provide a solution that would raise temperatures within the building. The contractor overseeing the project was facing the prospect of delays and was desperate to avoid this scenario due to tenancy commitments.
Low ambient temperatures were threatening to affect wet trade processes including plastering and floor laying. An Andrews engineer visited the client’s site a few hours after being contacted and after assessing the environment and conducting a thorough assessment, proposed a bespoke heater hire solution to ensure surfaces dried correctly.
The winter season can be a very cold and lonely place for some of the less fortunate in our community, with the build-up to Christmas a perfect reminder of the impact a small gesture or gift can make to people in difficult situations.
Last year, we were delighted to be able to team up with the Charlton Athletic Community Trust and contribute towards their Stay Warm, Stay Safe campaign – a scheme aimed at supporting residents who may be at risk during the colder months.
The initiative is run on behalf of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and provides care to people over 60, young or vulnerable people or anyone having difficulties paying winter fuel bills.
When a renowned kitchen furniture manufacturer required temporary heating to keep staff warm, Andrews Heat for Hire was contacted and asked to provide a solution.
The client had used our services previously and was confident in our ability to install a temporary heater hire arrangement befitting of their application. In years gone by, the customer has requested that we use gas heating units, but a different solution was sought on this occasion. Our client had recently completed renovation work within their premises which included improving the insulation of the walls and roof.
Andrews Heat for Hire was contacted by a leading aircraft maintenance company seeking an emergency heating arrangement that could be delivered to their hangar and installed as quickly as possible.
The client suffered a complete breakdown of their own heating system, which was in the process of being completely overhauled. Dozens of employees work in the hangar on a day-to-day basis and help oversee various operations relating to the aviation industry, which is why the necessity of a quick response was impressed upon us at first contact.
At this time of year, falling seasonal temperatures coincide with the hectic Christmas build-up to leave many businesses seeking additional storage space for their goods and products. Last year alone, almost £80 billion was spent by UK consumers during the festive period – an increase of 1.4% from 2017.
And with retail expenditure showing no sign of decreasing this Christmas, the reasons behind the need for more storage areas are abundantly clear.
As such, we’ve noticed a sizeable increase in the number of enquiries relating to heater hire for temporary storage applications, with a well-known entertainment technology company recently getting in touch with us in search of a solution.
Andrews Sykes is saddened to hear the news that British Rally legend Russell Brookes has passed away at the age of 74.
Russell, the Double British Rally Championship driver is forever associated with the company famously for his “Andrews Heat for Hire” liveried rally cars. For Andrews Sykes, it has been without a doubt a delight to have worked alongside Russell for over 17 years, with our long lasting partnership beginning in 1974 when our Andrews Heat for Hire division became the primary sponsor for Russell – dominant across the remarkable vehicles he competed in.
During the months of autumn and winter, the drastic change in weather can have an adverse effect on the mind and body, leaving our mood and ability to concentrate in a deficient state. Where our bodies feel the cold in terms of a temperature drop, cold and flu, hypothermia and frostbite, our state of mind also suffers resulting in confusion, tiredness, negative moods and a lack of focus. All of these have proven to be undesirable consequences of a cold indoor setting and can affect both our personal and professional lives.
