Henley Half Marathon Trail Run

Managing Director Francis Tracey completed the Henley Half Marathon Trail Run on Sunday 12th May in 1:44:21!

The Henley Half Marathon Trail Run is now in its 6th year. This scenic Trail Run started and finished by the Temple Island Meadows – The Official Start line for the Royal Henley Rowing Regatta.

The event is not designed to be a gruelling cross country through deep mud and puddles, but aims to be a fun, friendly and fast trail run along one of England’s most historic courses.

This was good practice for Francis before he takes part in the 50k Race to the Stones in July.

Francis & Gavin complete the Spring Wolf!

On the 14th April Francis and Gavin completed the Spring Wolf event in Warwickshire. The course pushed them through Woods, Obstacles, Lakes and Forests over the 1,000 acre site.

The 10km off-road run featured a series of man-made and natural obstacles which tested both Francis and Gavin but they both made it to the end, albeit a lot muddier than when they started the event! They managed to complete the Spring Wolf in just over an hour. This event has been a nice warm up before the Blenheim Triathlon in June and the 50km Race to the Stones in July!

Ind-Tech Shortlisted for 2019 WOBA Award

We are thrilled to report that we have been shortlisted for the WOBA 2019 Small Business Award.

This year marks the third year that we have entered the WOBA awards. The WOBA 2019 small business award is eligible to any businesses of between 5 and 25 employees. The judges will be visiting us to measure us on our performance, past growth, future growth plans, how we deal with challenges and also what stand out quality makes us worthy of winning the award.

We believe our stand out quality is that we really care about our customers and we care about the service we deliver to them. Ind-Tech was set up to help Engineers and Procurement Managers – of course businesses exist to make money, but this isn’t the main driving force for us. Just as our customers:

“The difference with Ind-Tech is they go the extra yard every time…”. 

We respond to our customer emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, offering a service that is entirely based on their requirements.

We care about our impact on the environment and as such have invested in ISO14001, constantly looking for ways to reduce our footprint.

Far from a corporate company, we have bags of personality which shines through in our work and how we deal with each other and our customers.

We would love for our third year of entering to be our winning year. The judges will be visiting us in early 2019 to decide if we will become finalists. We’ll report back if we are successful!
