Who reached the terrestrial North Pole first on April 9, 1909? No, it wasn’t Masterflex, but Robert Peary, his partner Mathew Henson and four Inui.

Nobody lives at the North Pole, it’s just a patch of a frozen ocean:

But there is life, in the Arctic Circle where conditions that we think may be considered too tough for us, in the outer reaches of the Arctic Circle, Inuit tribes live there in northern Canada and Alaska.

Munich – 60 years on – remembering the “Busby Babes”

images

On 6th February 1958, the aircraft carrying the Manchester United football team, its staff, journalists and supporters crashed, killing 23 of the 44 passengers.

United had just beaten Red Star Belgrade and where on their way home from Belgrade when they stopped at Munich Riem Airport for re-fueling.  With a blizzard blowing and vision poor, the aircraft attempted to take off 3 times, but a layer of slush prevented the aircraft from taking off and it crashed into a fence and hit a house.  Twenty passengers died on board, and three died later in hospital. Forever remembering the Busby Babes 60 years on.

Results day for GCSE’s

It’s an anxious and nervous day for all the Girls and Boys today, as the GSCE results are here. Introduced to the UK in 1988, the GCSE was to replace the “O’Level” and the “CSE” examinations.  One of the main changes consisted of two years of coursework, which was to contribute towards their final results.

After revising, taking the exams and then relaxing over the summer, today is the day all their hard work has hopefully paid off!!!

Masterflex would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best of luck and we hope you get the results you wish for.  The next decision will be what to do next????

You may decide to have a career in the Motor industry, Construction, Woodwork, Medicine, Food or maybe the Military, to name but a few. Here at Masterflex Technical Hoses we have manufactured and supplied hoses for all of these industries. For further information, please check out our website or simply call our friendly Sales Team on 0161 626 8066.

Time for some repairs………Big Ben will be silent for several months!

What an iconic Landmark and probably the most famous clock in the world, Big Ben.

Big Ben is the giant bell in the belfry of the Elizabeth Tower at the Palace of Westminster, which has been overlooking our Capital City of London, for over 151 years, and has become a very popular tourist site.

Cast at Whitechapel Bell Foundry on the 10th April 1858, the famous clock is now in need of some repairs due to cracks in the masonry and corrosion to the cast iron roof, so whilst the construction and mechanical works are to be carried out, there will be no more chimes during this period.  So at 12.00pm on the 21st August there will be no more dongs……..!!!!!

 

Here at Masterflex Technical Hoses we supply many different types of flexible ducting for Construction and Mechanical purposes.  Feel free to check out our website or contact our friendly Sales Team by ringing 0161 626 8066 or emailing sales@masterflex-uk.com
