Inta marks 10th birthday
STAFF at a bathroom manufacturer celebrated the company's 10th birthday with a visit from their MP.
Hixon-based plumbing equipment maker Inta welcomed Stafford MP Jeremy Lefroy for a tour of the premises.
And the firm was praised for the progress it has made since starting out.
Mr Lefroy said: "Inta is a fine example of how working hard and having a conscience can bring businesses great success.
"To have built such a strong presence in the bathroom manufacturing market in such a short time is a fantastic achievement and I commend the company for its work in removing the risk of scalding from bathrooms in the UK."
The company, which is known for its anti-scald and water saving products, has grown to a turnover of around £10 million since its launch in 2002 and currently employs 34 staff, as well as apprentices from Stafford College.
Stuart Gizzi, one of the firm's directors, said: "We are really pleased that Jeremy took the time to find out about our company.
"Our crusade for scald free bathrooms is far from over, but ten years on, we remain profitable and have informed plumbers and installers with 400,000 anti-scald booklets and supplied a million thermostatic mixing valves."
