After initial enquiries at AEA Harwell, where up until then only steel glove boxes had been in use, interest was shown in a glove box that was made in chemically resistant material. This quickly led on to further orders within the nuclear industry.
The natural progression from larger glove boxes brought about our development of the modular containment system (MCS) which is now widely used in the nuclear and other industries for de-commissioning and handling hazardous materials.
We now have glove boxes and containments in every nuclear research establishment in the country and in many other related industries.
In 1987 James Bartlett joined the firm in Titchfield, Hampshire, and now continues to further the expertise and forward thinking of the company, as Managing Director. In 1994 we were pleased to achieve accreditation to BS EN ISO 9001 2008 which has further advanced our reputation within the industry.
Today we produce glove boxes, modular containment systems and accessories for new and existing customers within a variety of industries, some of whom we have supplied since the formation of the company.
In addition the company produces a wide range of industrial glass fibre mouldings from "one-offs" to full production runs. Our injection moulding division is small but specialised.
