Ion Science have completed their move into a new ultra-modern state-of-the-art £4.5 million, 1500m² facility geared to meet their ambitious global growth plans for advanced VOC monitors.
Located in Fowlmere in Cambridgeshire, the flexible new plant has been purpose-built to meet current and short-term needs, as well as reflect the on-going ambitions of the business, which continues to achieve 30% year-on-year growth.
Featuring a technologically advanced yet sympathetic design, which provides the effect of a cluster of smaller, low level agricultural type buildings, the facility has been specially constructed to achieve the highest possible hygiene, quality and environmental standards.
Duncan Johns, Managing Director at Ion Science comments: “Ion Science is excited to declare our new facility open and fully operational. This is a massive milestone in the company’s 27-year history and we’re looking forward to having the administration, sales and production capacity to achieve further expansion in both new and previously untapped markets and territories.”
“We like to play hard as well as work hard at Ion Science so the building has been designed to offer a fantastic working environment with well-equipped break-out
spaces, lovely landscaped gardens and other outside recreational areas for staff and visitors to enjoy.
Duncan adds: “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank employees for their patience, dedication and hard work in helping get the plant operational within the allotted timeframe.
“The future for Ion Science and its staff, distributor network and offices in the USA, France and Italy looks extremely bright. With the new facility, we’re now ideally positioned to focus on further expanding our presence in global occupational health and environmental monitoring applications,” Duncan concludes.
As well as investment in the building itself, Ion Science has installed the latest cutting-edge production equipment including a Weiss Technik floor-standing temperature and climatic control chamber to ensure the on-going quality and safety of its handheld and fixed photoionisation detectors (PIDs).
To facilitate the in-house production of printed circuit boards (PCB), Ion Science has also installed an advanced iineo Europlacer SMT pick and place complete production line system. Offering a high level of flexibility and feeder count, it is widely configurable without the need to compromise on placement speed or component capability and delivers complete manufactured items without human intervention.
