What our clients have to say

As always I appreciate all your help including the rest of your team, it really is a breath of fresh air dealing with you all.

Hospital Estates and Engineering Manager, Spire Healthcare

We have had a number of cabinets fail due to a leak test. Anthony Rushton was very accommodating in relaying his findings to our supplier to try and get a resolution. Not only did he articulate his findings precisely and accurately, but he also supported myself in ensuring (and understanding) the information being passed back to me was also correct. Thanks for your support on this at such late notice, really appreciate it.

Senior Operations Specialist/Site Lead, AstraZenaca

Many thanks for your help over the last few days, especially the site teams who pulled out the stops and have done everything they could to help us resolve this issue and get the theatres back in use by this morning. We found them a really helpful and professional team.

Regional Engineering Manager, Spire Healthcare

Please can you pass on my thanks to the Howorth Air Tech's Paul Taylor for his excellent professionalism and workmanship

Assistant Site Operations Manager, Bronglais Hospital, NHS Wales

I would not wish to use anyone else, Howorth Air Tech's service is outstanding. Claire Fenlon is always helpful and polite. All the engineers who have been to site are knowledgable and prepared to go the extra mile to return the hospital to full service

Manager, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth

We had a faulty operating light in our outpatients department. The job was completed and the engineer was very well mannered. Thank you.

All staff that I have contact with are helpful and professional, Lindsay and Claire always accommodate any issues we have

Engineers are very thorough. They attend The Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth on time and are very well presented. They act in a professional manner and have built a good rapport with all parties involved.

Wayne John, Engineering Manager (UK & Ireland), ENGIE

We have been working with Howorth since 2014, and happy to award them another 5-Year comprehensive contract this year for all our UCV servicing and annual verification of all our theatres and critical ventilation. Despite many of our Ultra Clean canopies being 3rd party manufactured, they have the experience and aptitude to repair and rectify issues surroundng the ventilation and canopies on our site. Additionally their dedication and response times to site are excellent and we continue to trust Howorth to deliver

Estates Manager, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital

Following the verification works, I would like to say a big thank you to Dan Rannard, Sean Myatt Jnr and Ellis Longworth for their professional work and support when working on Acute Theatres 5,6, TDC Theatre 3 and F-Side Theatre 10 at Wythenshawe Hospital.

Operations Manager, Sodexo

Thank you to everyone who helped today at Howorth from Little Aston Hospital, after we had our Theatre Three lights go down this morning. Howorth Air Tech got us a portable light so we did not have to cancel this afternoon’s list. They also sent an engineer with two new boards, now fitted, to get our old operating lights up and running again.

Director of Clinical Services, Spire Healthcare Group

I find Howorth very helpful in resolving PPM remedial faults. Continue the excellent service and support.

HV - Authorised Person, Skanska Facilities Services, Royal London Hospital

Howorth Air Tech are my preferred maintenance supplier. The service I receive from everyone is excellent, they are all a credit to the company.

Technical Support Officer, Estates & Facilities, Leighton Hospital

May I also take the opportunity to thank Michael Steele for supporting us, he has been very professional and helpful throughout.

Senior Technical Lead, Nuffield Health

Just as I read your email, I received a call from the driver to say he has just pulled into the hospital grounds so the HEPA filters have safely arrived. We are now able to reinstate the theatre canopy today and thanks for your assistance in resolving this quickly for us. In a world where people are quick to complain when something doesn't go quite right, I feel good to praise when I receive great service. This is what I have received today, thank you.

Stores Manager, Skanska
