Another award for Kibosh

l to r: BPF President, Philip Watkins (MD of Gabriel-Chemie), Keith Pinker, Upper Warden (Horners), Ross Dickinson (MD Kibosh)

SPRA member Ross Dickinson picked up yet another award at the British Plastics Federation Dinner in London on 18 October 2012, for his innovative Kibosh emergency pipe repair, for which he received the BPF’s Highly Commended Certificate in the 2012 competition for plastics innovation and design, organised by the Worshipful Company of Horners.

The winner of the 2012 Horners Award was a highly innovative obstetric training device called The Birthing Baby, developed jointly by Brightworks Ltd and Limbs and Things Ltd.

At the June SPRA meeting Ross described how he had taken his emergency pipe repair system from a concept, through the development stage to the commercial launch less than a year ago. The Kibosh emergency pipe repair is now being distributed worldwide by Rothenberger
