Boom time for Boomer as it secures major defence order

By Clare Weir

A Lisburn company has announced a major defence contract in England.

Boomer Industries makes plastic products including skirting boards, window liners and door sets.

The firm has supplied the MOD's Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) at Headley Court in Surrey with a number of door sets made from a range of materials and including the latest bug-beating technology.

For most military casualties, Headley Court is the final stage of the recovery process and houses 360 military and civilian staff.

The complex is set in 85 acres of landscaped gardens, near Epsom and includes a hydrotherapy pool, swimming pool, four fully equipped gyms and a limb-fitting and amputee centre.

John Irwin, sales and marketing director for Boomer Industries, said that supplying the Headley Court Patient and Clinical Accommodation Project has been an especially rewarding partnership for the company.

"Since 2006 a host of residential wards and treatment buildings have been erected and fitted with Boomer products in conjunction with a UK client. We have just completed the fit-out, and are delighted with the visible quality at the rehabilitation centre," he said

"This has been a very successful project for Boomer.

"We're delighted it has allowed our product innovation to be applied in a facility with such noble objectives.

"Not only is Boomer focused on client satisfaction, but it is persistent with our green credentials."

He added: "The use of Anti-Microbial PVC in Boomer products helps control the spread of harmful organisms such as MRSA, E-Coli, salmonella.

"It also prevents deterioration, discolouration, and provides extra protection when combined with normal cleaning procedures."
