London Network for Pest Solutions (LNPS) is pleased to announce that the company won the ‘COVID Response & Resilience’ award at this year’s Newham Business Awards.

The ‘COVID Response & Resilience’ category recognises businesses that have adapted and responded well to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commenting on the award, LNPS Managing Director Paul Cooper said: “To be recognised for our work during the pandemic means a lot to the business and particularly to our technical and field staff. They battled away, day in and day out, juggling normal pest control work and evening sanitisation work, never letting customers down and, in stark contrast to so many other businesses, provided the same standard of work and commitment as they did pre-pandemic. It has been hard, but this award, for us, recognises all of the different aspects of the way we shifted in our approach to doing business such as offering free pest control to food establishments, sanitising community food hubs and care homes, changing our working patterns, increasing PPE use, etc. This award will forever be a reminder that our commitment meant something.”

Because of the nature of the pandemic and the sharing of best practice, other Local Authorities quickly became aware of the work being carried by LNPS and the company was approached by a number of other hubs across London and Essex.

In summary, during COVID-19 LNPS:

  • Started a sanitisation service, supporting sheltered housing and food hubs
  • Introduced a “15 for 12” offer (pay for a 12-month contract, get the 1st 3 months free), to help get businesses up and running again
  • Immediate price freeze for all customers
  • Gave Toolbox talks/customer training to help care homes stay COVID free
  • Never missed a single request for service to domestic customers

The Newham Business Awards are now in their fifth year. Organised by the Newham Chamber of Commerce, they focus attention on the amazing work being done by businesses in Newham and East London.

The winners were announced at a special gala awards dinner on the 18th November at The Old Town Hall, Stratford.
