Leading infection control company and franchisor, Bio-Rite has announced it is expanding into Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. Paul Smith has taken on the franchise to provide Bio-Right’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 over 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. 

“Paul 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.”

Paul Smith comments: “I have been offered two jobs recently but I turned them both down as I am looking for an exciting, new challenge!  I am keen to build and run my own business and also employ local people to help bring jobs to my community.  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 and I believe Bio-Rite’s franchise model will provide all the support necessary and combined with my marketing and sales skills, allow me to grow a solid business and future for myself and my family. 

“Bio-Rite’s services blend the best practices involved with both manual and mechanical disinfection techniques while taking advantage of advances in safe and effective decontamination technology to offer solutions to the everyday problems of infection control,” continues Paul.  “Being able to make a difference by addressing such pressing needs in our institutions will be rewarding and I am confident there are also other markets for Bio-Rite’s decontamination services moving forward too.” 

Prior to joining Bio-Rite Paul Smith was a sales manager in the electronic office supplies market and also previously worked at Xerox for nine years.

Bio-Rite is currently recruiting franchisees on a nation-wide basis.  Bio-Rite is a British Franchise Association (bfa) Provisional Member and staff and franchisees are members of the Infection Prevention Society (IPS).  For further information please visit
