Process Instruments (Pi) have been supporters of the Living Wage Foundation since 2016, but have now been officially accredited as a Living Wage Employer by the Living Wage Foundation.

Pi are proud to pay a living wage

Pi’s Living Wage commitment means that qualifying employees at Pi will receive a minimum hourly rate of £9; an amount significantly higher than the UK government minimum for over 25s, which currently stands at £7.83 per hour.

In Pi’s region of the UK, 23% of all jobs (634,000 jobs) pay less than the real Living Wage. The real Living Wage provides a voluntary benchmark for employers who wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011, the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 160,000 people.

When commenting on Pi’s Living Wage commitment, Managing Director Mike Riding said:

“We’re very proud to be accredited as an official Living Wage employer and have always been keen to ensure that our team earn enough to live on. Our company values include fairness, respect and integrity and we believe that all our team deserve fair pay for their hard work.”

Furthermore Tess Lanning, Director of the Living Wage Foundation, commented:

“We’re delighted that Process Instruments has joined the movement of over 4,700 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on. They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as IKEA, Heathrow Airport, Chelsea F.C., Everton F.C. and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer.”

Julius Pi and Craig AllPronix at Anfield

In February 2019, Pi welcomed Craig Bradshaw from AllPronix for a week of advanced product training at the head office in Burnley, UK. Craig is the product specialist for Pi equipment at AllPronix and is responsible for sales across South Africa.

The training week was very hands-on, providing Craig with practical experience in setting up the analysers and trying out different features. The training involved in-depth tutorials about the CRONOS® and CRIUS® analysers including communications, PID settings and remote access as well as sensor calibration procedures for the pHSense pH meter, ConductiSense conductivity meter, TurbSense® turbidity meter, SoliSense® suspended solids monitor and more.

Pi’s head office contact for South Africa, Julius Guth, spent the week training Craig with assistance from Wesley Ashworth and Ben Turner from Pi’s Technical Support team. But the week wasn’t all work; Craig also had plenty of fun trying his hand at Clay Pigeon Shooting at The Coniston Hotel and fulfilling his boyhood dream of watching Liverpool Football Club play at Anfield.

Julius said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Craig to our office and we had a great time together. Craig learnt a lot from the training, which will be invaluable when he is working with his customers back in South Africa. We have been partners with AllPronix for over 4 years now, so it’s always good to have a visit from them and provide assistance wherever we can.”

Pi’s EquipSolutions branded CRIUS® Controller

Process Instruments (Pi) have signed a new distributor agreement with EquipSolutions, ensuring a continued relationship for years to come.

EquipSolutions (EQS), based in Illinois, USA, has been serving its customers across all industries as an equipment supplier and solutions provider for many years. The new distributor agreement secures the relationship between Pi and EQS and allows EQS to supply Pi’s SMART and DIGITAL CRIUS® instrument controller to customers across North America but with their own branding.

The CRIUS® controller is equipped with the capability to connect up to 4 sensors measuring a range of parameters including chlorine, turbidity, pH and suspended solids. The CRIUS® can also be equipped with remote access allowing users to access and manage the controller from a PC or mobile, rather than standing in front of the analyser onsite.

Pi’s Sales Manager, Dr. Rob Paramore said: “Pi is at the forefront of the Water 4.0 and Industry 4.0 movement within the water industry and with EQS as a partner, this will allow all companies across North America to benefit from the advancements Pi has made with its SMART and DIGITAL technology”.
