Ritec International is proud to be a member of Achilles UVDB (Utilities Vendor Database), the UK’s biggest utilities supplier online management community. For the third year running, Ritec has successfully recertified its registration.
UVDB is the utility industry pre-qualification system used by the utilities sector in the UK to manage risk within the supply chain and comply with EU regulations. Utility companies strive for a transparent and efficient collaboration with best in class suppliers and UVDB helps to achieve that.
The scheme is a perfect fit for Ritec’s Systems that provide solutions for the renovation, ‘non-stick’ protection and maintenance for a range of surfaces. Ritec’s Systems include the ClearShield Eco-System® for glass and other vitreous surfaces, the Ritecoat System® for metal, plastic and painted surfaces, and the VoltShield System® for glass and glazed ceramic electrical insulators. The Systems were developed to resist dirt, staining and discolouration as well as upgrading existing surfaces so they are easier to clean and keep clean.
The importance to Ritec of qualification and re-certification of the scheme is not to be understated; Martin Burkett AIIRSM, the company’s Production Manager responsible for maintaining the registration, explains: “Achilles UVDB directly showcases our profile to 80 sector organisations and over 3,000 buyers. Completing the online application allows us ultimately to save money and time in repetitive pre-qualification questions, and allows us to achieve new business through a fair and open platform. The scheme is used by organisations including National Grid and energy suppliers, and we are proud to be providing unique solutions to these types of companies.”
