This week we were lucky enough to find out we have been selected to be finalists for the Elements of Innovation Award, which is taking place at this year’s W Exhibition at the end of the Month 30th September to 3rd October 2018 at the NEC in Birmingham.

This is an exciting opportunity for everyone at R&B, bringing our developed SmartAIR® System to another higher acknowledgment throughout the industry.

The Elements of Innovation Award provides a chance for new revolutionary products on the market to be showcased and be judged by a carefully selected panel who specialise in key areas of the furniture, design and manufacturing trade.

The finalists will have a chance in winning an esteemed Gold, Silver and Bronze award who will form the first winners of this new and fast-growing recognition.

Meet us at the W Exhibition

We will be attending the W Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham this year. This is an exciting opportunity for us to showcase our energy efficient SmartAIR® system as well as many of our other products and services.

If you are attending the event be sure to visit our stand S805 and talk to our knowledgeable engineers about what we can do for you. 

We have exhibited at other exhibitions before, but this will be our first 'large' exhibition as well as our first exhibition with the furniture and joinery industry. We are hoping to introduce SmartAIR® to many customers who can begin to experience the benefits and energy savings for themselves. SmartAIR® isn't just for new customers though, as we can fit SmartAIR® into existing systems.

Our engineers will also be on hand to answer all your questions about wood dust extraction, spray booth extraction, parts and spares, DSEAR compliance, personal air monitoring and any other dust and fume related health and safety issues you may have.

We hope to see you there!

Going further afield

Last week, we visited Tucker Joinery in Andover, Hampshire to see our patented, energy efficient SmartAIR system in action!

Tucker Joinery was established in 1976, and are “a small team who take enormous pride in their work”. This work needs to be done efficiently and to a high standard, that’s why Lee at Tucker Joinery decided to have our SmartAIR system installed in the Spring of 2017.


Why SmartAIR?

Our patented SmartAIR system is the most innovative product on the market, keeping your energy savings and workplace efficiency to a maximum, furthermore the system can work at speed with each extracted branch moving in conjunction with one another, keeping your machines fans at an optimal speed regardless of how many machines are on or off at one time.

We’d like to thank Lee and the team at Tucker Joinery for welcoming us into the workshop to take some photos of our extraction system, and we look forward to visiting again in the not-so-distant future.



Hold the line!

We have also updated our hold music message! It should be up by Friday and you'll be able to hear one of our members of staff let you in on a few secrets that you might not know about R&B.

Give us a call if you have an enquiry on: 01264 351844.


We look forward to hearing from you, as well as hope you have a prosperous end to May. 

May I update you?

A busy few weeks since our last news post! We are into the swing of things in May, the sun is shining and we are in the midst of another 4-day week, we have been to Southampton, Corby and Wales already this week.

In Corby we replaced a dust collector, Wales we carried out a specification visit for a water authority. In Southampton we carried out service and LEV testing on-site. We have also had in-house LEV training, as well as some updates to our social media and website, you can now have a look at our LinkedIn page here: https://www.linkedin.com/company/rbindustrialltd/.

With many engineers out and about we are committed to ensuring our energy efficient products are being used throughout the UK.

Here are some examples of some of the  jobs we’ve been a part of:
