The UK's Longest Established Water Cooler Company
There is perhaps no sector more diverse than the business community. Every organisation has its own distinct needs and agendas. And this carries through from ethos and operation to the equipment used on site, including hydration facilities. There can be no ‘one size fits all’ approach. The physical landscape of the working environment is as integral to the choice of equipment as the intended users and, as obvious as it might sound, the purpose of the equipment (staff or customer use). A specialist supplier will be able to ascertain your needs, guide you towards the best equipment and advise on the siting of the units.
Working in the field for more than 30 years, MIW Water Cooler Experts is now recognised as the UK’s leading authority on indoor and outdoor bottle fillers. We have some business contracts that we have been serving for almost as long as the company has been in operation. And throughout that time, we have evolved our services to suit the demands of the businesses we are working with. That’s why our national – and international – client base continues to grow.
Meeting the needs of businesses of all sizes
At MIW, we work with an enormous range of business customers. From standalone SMEs to brands with multiple branches throughout the country. Some are office-based, while others are within a retail or workshop/warehouse environment, or a mixture of all three. Because we stock such a wide range of products, including specialist equipment manufactured by MIW specifically for the various divisions of the business market, we are able to provide the perfect water dispenser for your needs.
Hydration facility considerations
What those needs may be will vary, but will always include WRAS-approval, to ensure that all water authority and Government guidelines are met. This is something upon which we pride ourselves. But there are, of course, many other areas of consideration.
Not all water dispensers are created equal. Some simply can’t handle the rigours of a high traffic environment. Others, while sturdy, would not endure in a workshop – in fact, in many cases, an outdoor bottle filler might be more appropriate for a more industrialised space. While for an office, aesthetics can often play a surprisingly large part. The MIW team will not only advise upon the best drinking fountain or bottle filler for a company’s needs, but also look at the logistics. Would a free-standing or wall-mounted unit be more appropriate? Which will take up the least space? Which would cause the least disruption during installation?
One of the things that we’re very proud about at MIW is that we stock such a wide range of water dispensers that are easy to use and easy to access for people of all abilities. This includes bottle fillers and fountains with hands-free operation and a number of both indoor and outdoor units that are wheelchair accessible and have Americans with Disabilities Act approval – bringing them into line with the UK Equality Act (2010).
As an employer, you have a duty of care. It is your responsibility to ensure that all equipment on your premises is safe and hygienic. As well as silver-ion antimicrobial coating to help make the external parts of your drinking fountains and bottle fillers as hygienic as possible, some of our newest units use cutting-edge technology within to attain the same end. Both lead reduction filters and UV filters help to ensure that the water delivered is as clean and fresh as possible, without the risk of tainting the taste or smell of the water. The latter can destroy up to 99.99% of all waterborne microorganisms, including E. coli, legionella, cryptosporidium and giardia, as well as mould.
Some companies simply want to make sure that their staff can access drinking water. Others are looking for more. That’s why we offer everything from simple mains-fed devices to those with eco-cooling systems, filtration, and usage trackers.
Branding and customisation
Where required, MIW can also upgrade units to include company messaging or simply tie in with the décor. We can also add in security features, such as shelves to prevent the units being used for depositing suspect packages, if required.
While the equipment we provide is a significant part of MIW’s success, it doesn’t stop there.
One of the reasons that we’ve been able to maintain such a healthy long-term business customer base is because we are constantly assessing our service offering to ensure that we deliver what you need.
Providing ongoing maintenance, sanitation, servicing and periodic equipment upgrades, our turnkey rental agreement is particularly popular in commercial environments. But we’re also flexible and offer other services that businesses want, including straight equipment supply and sale and installation packages.
And when it comes to installation, we take no chances. As well as being a polite and friendly bunch, all MIW engineers are advanced DBS vetted prior to appointment. We understand the responsibility you are giving us by letting us work on your premises. We are determined never to abuse that.
Every business is different. That’s why we don’t offer pre-designed packages or plans. At MIW, our focus has always been on getting the right products and services to the right people. That means making an individual assessment every time. And that way we can always be sure that every customer receives the best that we can possibly give them.
If you would like more information about installing or upgrading drinking fountains, bottle fillers or watercoolers for your business, please get in touch. We’ll help in any way we can.
