Giving something back!
Our Technical Manager Balvinder Singh, along with his family have decided to take part in the Heart Research 5K running event in Birmingham on Sunday 24th September.
The Singh family are running in aid of Heart Research UK that has been helping hearts for the past 50 years. It has been funding ground-breaking medical research after realising that patients were dying unnecessarily due to a lack of research.
A charity close to Balvinders’ heart, he and his family will be taking part in this fun-packaged event whilst trying to raise money for Heart Research UK. The 5K run is partnered with Heart Research, which means that the Singh family will have to tackle the iconic “Field of Fresh.” A gigantic inflatable for the final 500m!

The new Shukers Land Rover Dealership in Aberystwyth has just invested in Rozone’s innovative bioremediating parts cleaning machine, the Smartwasher®.
Offering superior cleaning power that is safe and effective on any oily component part, the Smartwasher® offers significant benefits to both the user and the environment as it reduces the use of harsh toxic chemicals, helps technicians work more safely and also benefits the environment through its clever self-recycling technology. Traditional solvent part washers usually involve expensive service contracts, the Smartwasher® brings savings to the user as it dramatically reduces waste fluid generation and can be easily maintained in-house.
Joe Barney, Managing Director at Shukers says: “we chose Rozone`s Smartwasher® because the health and safety of our employees is paramount and it is important to us to safeguard our surrounding environment – the Smartwasher®is non-hazardous, non-flammable, emits no VOCs or vapours and poses no threat to our technicians – in fact it is heated to 40°c so they actually enjoy using it! With all these benefits and the cost savings on eliminating a monthly service contract the investment justification was very easy to make.”
With a rich history that stretches back hundreds of years, the Shukers group has decades of motoring experience working with popular brands including Land Rover and Hyundai and has a hard-earned reputation for quality. Shukers have chosen to clean smarter why don`t you give the Smartwasher® a go.
Rozone are proud to have become members of the Made in the Midlands (MIM) family – an association which unites Midland Industry by bringing together like minded companies to Source, Supply, Share best practice and Collaborate within the region.
Beth Jones - Head of UK Smartwasher at Rozone says: "we chose to join MIM in order to connect with local companies and create new business opportunities as well as building lasting relationships. The association boasts fantastic networking opportunities and we saw this as the ideal platform to raise our profile and share best practice with associate members.”
Rozone are part of the Rubery Owen Group, which has been operating in Darlaston in the Black Country since 1893 employing 5,000 workers on a 74 acre site at its height. Today Rozone supplies innovative cleaning solutions to industries such as Automotive, Industrial, Aerospace, Engineering and Government replacing potentially hazardous chemical products with effective water-based or safer solvent-based solutions, protecting the health and safety of technicians and offering environmental benefits.
As we are sure you are aware, new legislation regarding CLP compliant labelled products came into force in 2009 and a secondary phrase in 2015. We are now nearing the date where the final phase comes in, which is compulsory and it will become illegal to sell such old style labelled products from 1st June 2017.
The Rozone Smartwasher is our unique parts cleaning system that is both self-cleaning and non-hazardous. Many different businesses have benefitted from its safe to use and effective design.
Sam Humpheson, who is the owner of Look Mum No Hands, a combination of a café and one of the most reputable bike workshops in London, has been using the Smartwasher ever since the company was founded in 2010. So far, he has loved the product and has given us the following testimonial.
"When we opened in 2010 I knew that we needed a parts washer but did not want the smell, expense or disruption of a traditional solvent-based system.
Rozone have proven to be the solution to these problems with their low impact, environmentally sound Smartwasher.
Our Smartwasher has been hammered every day for 7 years and is still producing great results, needing nothing more than a fresh filter every month and a little topping up of fluid every now and then.
I couldn't imagine using any other system, and it is a nice bonus that the team at Rozone have been an absolute pleasure to deal with."
The Smartwasher has 3 essential components; the parts cleaning machine; powerful water based degreasing solution (Ozzy Juice) and microbe impregnated mat (Ozzy Filter). The combination of these 3 components, creates one of the most cost effective and thorough parts cleaning systems on the market.
Thank you Sam - you have also been a pleasure to work with.

A message for our damage management companies.
You are probably aware that the Met office has issued Amber and Yellow warnings of severe weather over the next few days thanks to Storm Doris bringing strong winds and snow. Rozone are stocked up and ready for next working day delivery of our damage management products should you need them.
If you require anything during this time call us on 0121 524 0604 and we will assist you in anyway we can.
We talk about our duct-tech solution a lot. But you don’t need to take our word for it, here is proof of just some of the amazing results our customers have been getting from the duct-tech range of products.
We recently tested our duct-tech power clean and duct-tech gel for a kitchen canopy and duct clean. The product previously used by our customer is classed as a corrosive which means it can be harmful to users. Our product on the other hand is an irritant which means it is much friendlier to use.
As shown in the pictures below the duct-tech worked very effectively. The customer even mentioned that he noticed significant improvements from the original product. The team also found it more pleasant to work with, with a far less aggressive odour. In terms of the clean, a particular difference was seen with the reduction of white marks left after cleaning the canopy, which is a result of Rozone products being less caustic.
The customers were particularly impressed with the duct-tech gel, which comes in a sprayable gel that sticks to surfaces, ensuring that grease is removed with ease.

The Smartwasher® could be the most profitable tool in your workshop
It makes our job much easier because we can clean a whole bike twice as fast as our previous spray and rag method. We wouldn’t be without it!
Dan Murtagh, Rutland Cycling, Whitwell
The Rozone Smartwasher® has been an incredible benefit for our DIY workshop
Students are able to clean their chains in less than 2 minutes flat, and they marvel at how fast and clean their parts become. It’s so easy to use and the fact that it’s environmentally friendly is the icing on the cake. I don’t see why every bike shop doesn’t have one!
Jenni Gwiazdowski, London Bike Kitchen
“Every quarter, the Rozone team visits our Cleaning House, the HQ training facility, and trains our technicians. This is inclusive within their service to ensure that we are getting the very best out of the Rozone products and technologies that we use. Nobody else works with us in this way.
“The technicians really appreciate the time given to them and they like working with Rozone’s products as they are formulated with the user in mind, whilst balancing performance and sustainability."
Ron Rookledge, Technical Support Manager, Rainbow
“I have worked with Rozone for many years. They provide an effective solution which supports the operation of our business. In addition, Rozone supports some of the more technically challenging situations we are faced with by giving direct industry support as well as chemical and microbiological support.
“This can result in large savings for our insurance customers. For example, with the expert advice we receive from Rozone, we are able to support the insurance companies with invalid claims. On one job alone we were able to save the insurance companies significant funds by using the expert microbiological advice from Rozone.”
Steve Rowen, National Operations Manager, Polygon
"The Rozone team have worked closely with us to deliver a customer service that we believe is the best in the market place. They help us by providing the chemicals and ancillary products to restore properties following fires and floods. We view the relationship between our companies as a partnership and not just business transactions.
We have full confidence that the products supplied by Rozone allow us to undertake decontamination and restoration works to a highest possible level, a key service for us is the ability to tailor any product to the needs of the project they are to be applied to.
The Rozone team provides us with a great service and always supports us by ensuring we have the products we need in timely manner."
Richard Done, General Manager, Arepa
"I have worked with Rozone for a number of years and they have always supported us and recommended product to use in different situations, their technical knowledge is great and they offer support when needed. We have used many of their products and in particular the “Res Restore Clean” a light/medium pH neutral surface cleaner that dries quickly and leaves a great finish, this is a great all round cleaner that has adjustable dilution rates to take on anything from dust to a fire, as the product is diluted this saves us thousands of pounds per annum."
Paul Newland, General Manager, Relko Cleaning and Support Services Ltd
"Over the years I have worked very closely with Rozone by adapting and developing chemicals and equipment to suit best practice and environmental requirements, whilst also taking part in delivering training in the field and in the classroom."
Steve Harsant, Group Training Manager, Polygon
Increased efficiency: Having the Rozone Smartwasher® has increased efficiency in our workshop, allowing us to triple our servicing output on a daily basis.
