New Bio-Rite Franchisee, Paul Smith

Leading infection control company and franchisor Bio-Rite is expanding into Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. Paul Smith has taken on the franchise to provide Bio-Rite’s range of decontamination services to help clients including the NHS and care homes tackle common threats like MRSA, C.Difficile or Norovirus for the benefit of patients in the region.

'As a group, Bio-Rite has more than 40 years’ experience in decontamination and infection control management and, due to the growing demand for our services, we are now delighted to welcome Paul Smith as our representative in the east of England,' confirms Alan Wright, managing director, Bio-Rite. 'Paul’s corporate background means he is well placed to identify and liaise with key hospital and care home staff to book appointments for Bio-Rite’s services including the decontamination of wards and care equipment.

'He will also be able to offer Bio-Rite’s new mobile decontamination service, which enables the immediate and effective decontamination of mattresses and used care equipment in a specifically designed, mobile hydrogen peroxide chamber,' continues Wright. 'This procedure is essential to control common air-borne pathogens such as C.Difficile, resulting in a rapid turn-around of equipment and most importantly a safe environment in our hospitals and care homes.'

Prior to joining Bio-Rite, Smith was a sales manager in the electronic office supplies market and also previously worked at Xerox for nine years. 'Bio-Rite is one of the few companies in the UK that is able to offer the range of products and services that are needed to reduce infections in healthcare environments,' he says. 'I believe Bio-Rite’s franchise model will provide all the support necessary and, combined with my marketing and sales skills, will allow me to grow a solid business.'
