Lovis Forensic Investigation

Lovis Forensic Investigation Ltd (LFI) is a local Sandbach based company that carries out investigations for Insurance Companies, Loss Adjusters, Solicitors and private clients into accidents and incidents to help them understand why they occurred.  This can be anything from a flood in a home or business to a crane collapse or a manufacturing issue.  We use our expertise in materials science, metallurgy and mechanical engineering to carry out failure analysis on all types of materials such as metals, glass, plastics, ceramics, refractories, composites and paints and coatings.  So nothing to do with the leisure industry really.  So why are we sponsoring the awards?

We are a local family company with two children within the age categories of the awards who are very passionate about health and fitness. The idea that the awards are focussing on recognising and rewarding not only the children that excel at a particular sport but also those that simply work really hard, try everything and want to lead a healthy and active lifestyle for us is what makes these awards special.  Teaching the next generation the importance of an attitude geared at keeping active, eating well and thinking about others with charity work as well is priceless and is something we should all be striving for.  We look forward to hearing about all the wonderful things the local children have been doing and helping to spread the word to inspire others. If you want to see what we do head over to our website www.lovis-fi.co.uk
