The story of how IPU saved Christmas…

Everyone at IPU hopes that Santa brings you all the presents you want on Christmas morning. We know he’ll be out on his sleigh through the wee, small hours delivering presents all around the world.

If it hadn’t been for IPU, it might have been very different…

Shoddy maintenance by his elves (always downing tools and moaning about elf & safety – sorry), meant that his facilities at the North Pole were falling apart.

This is when IPU stepped in:

    • The Fuel Conditioning team installed a polishing unit to stop cold diesel clogging the sleigh’s engine (the reindeer quit in 2010, complaining that Christmas was only meant to be twelve days long).
    • The Engine Starting team fitted a new spring starter to the sleigh so the engine starts just as well at the frozen Pole as it does in the balmy Bahamas.
    • The Components team installed a battery charger to keep the sleigh running, an Enovation display on the dashboard so Santa could see the sleigh’s speed and engine condition, and a Senquip orb so Mrs. Claus could track Santa’s whereabouts.
    • The Emissions Solutions team installed an SCR & DPF onto the sleigh to ensure no harmful gases are released into the atmosphere. After all, Santa lives in the North Pole and loves snow!!

So, where would Christmas be without IPU?

IPU’s Christmas closing times

Santa may be working throughout Christmas but we’re taking some time off. IPU will close for Christmas from Thursday 23rd December at 4 p.m. and we’ll reopen at 8 a.m. on Tuesday 4th January 2022, ready and raring for the new year!

The cut off for the dispatch of UK orders to arrive before Christmas is 2.30 p.m. Tuesday 21st December (although this is postcode dependant).

Merry Christmas!
