Redmond Group in UK first with Victaulic – but it doesn’t stop there

2019 was a special year for Redmond Group. Amongst other accreditations, we made history as being the first designated installer of Victaulic in the UK, in fact we are the first outside the US.

Our story started back in early 2018, when Redmond Group Ltd made overtures to Victaulic, requesting a more comprehensive training regime to match that of the best US installers. We met with senior Victaulic representatives in the UK, which laid the path for a meeting with Senior Vice President, Mark Gilbert, while visiting the UK from Pennsylvania, US.

Subsequent to the high level meetings, our Leadership Team attended a three-day training course in Victaulic’s European HQ in Belgium in late 2018. This has culminated in a new training regime for UK contractors, which will lead to better pipe installations of Victaulic’s systems.

The first training programmes of this type took place on the 11th June 2019 and 31st October 2019 where our skilled Redmond Group operatives and supervisors attended the intensive training courses for Contractors and Installers on Victaulic UK’s New Manufacturer training programme: Victaulic Grooving and Installation Fundamentals (VGIF).

This was another innovative move by Redmond Group which will show our clients’ and colleagues within the industry our commitment to the ultimate in quality perfection. We won’t stop there – 2020 promises to be another great year for Redmond Group with plans in place to provide important key skills to its operatives through engagement and training. Finally, we thank everyone at Victaulic who assisted with making this happen.
