Rhino focuses on the nuclear industry with a new partner 

September 13 2022

Rhino Doors, the UK’s leading manufacturer of high-performance engineered doors, has signed an agency contract with UniTech Services Group Ltd, based in Crumlin, South Wales. 

UniTech will act as Rhino’s agent and represent the company’s comprehensive range of doors, including those designed for radiation protection, to customers working in the nuclear power and military nuclear sectors. 

Rhino’s new partner is the UK subsidiary of the worldwide UniTech Services Group Inc., based in Massachusetts, which generates over $100m in turnover and has operations throughout Europe and the US. 

UniTech specialises in the decontamination of PPE, tools, equipment and other consumables used in the nuclear industry, as well as offering an as-new reconditioning service, temporary on-site decontamination structures, and ancillary products to assist with decontamination routines. 

This new relationship was formed through negotiations between Jon Walter, Managing Director of Rhino Doors, and Paul Chesters, UniTech’s UK Business Manager, which brought into focus the potential of a partnership. 

“Rhino has supplied doors to the nuclear industry for several years, but we have been looking for the right partner to enable us to grow our presence in the sector,” said Jon Walter, Managing Director of Rhino Doors. 

“UniTech is well known and respected in the industry, with almost 100% coverage of all UK nuclear sites and a high-quality service and product offering. 

“In particular, its radiological expertise and its breadth of contacts will be a significant resource for us in developing our business in this sector.” 

Paul Chesters confirms this: “UniTech has always been interested in developing the scope of the products it can offer to the nuclear sector, and we’re delighted to have Rhino as a partner. 

“With high-quality products, a professional approach to design and manufacture, and a strong customer service culture, Rhino Doors is ideally suited to the nuclear sector. 

“As well as offering the required radiological protection, the company’s doors are extremely secure and can be supplied in an anti-terrorist format, which is highly relevant in these uncertain times. We are confident of a very fruitful partnership with Rhino.”
