The UK’s No.1 magnetic filter manufacturer, ADEY Professional Heating Solutions, has invested in a new state-of-the-art research and development facility at Kent Science Park to be run by leading industry chemist and former Fernox water treatment specialist Mo Jassal.
With more than 13 years’ experience in developing chemical solutions for the plumbing and heating industry, Jassal has been appointed Chemical Technical Manager and will head up the team at the new bespoke laboratory in Sittingbourne.
As the pioneers of magnetic filtration technology, ADEY has gone from strength to strength since the company was established ten years ago in the garden shed of ex-British Gas installer Chris Adey. Just last year, the company was awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Innovation for its MagnaClean filter.
The independent manufacturer has already invested well in advance of a six-figure sum in the set up of the new laboratory, which will focus on the ongoing development of ADEY’s MC range of premium chemicals. The lab will provide research and rigorous test facilities for the development of existing and new formulations. A technical services team will also be based at the site.
Mo Jassal, ADEY’s new Chemical Technical Manager is similarly excited about the challenges ahead and believes there are clear opportunities to break new ground on product development. “As the pioneers of magnetic filtration, ADEY’s a dynamic and progressive business, leading innovation in the plumbing and heating industry. It’s invested heavily in the new R&D lab and is committed to growing its chemical offering and exploring other product opportunities in the future. So, it’s an exciting time to be joining the company and be part of a large science and technology community on the Kent Science Park campus,” he said.
James Speck, Site Director of Kent Science Park, welcomed ADEY to KSP: “It is wonderful to have another market-leading company operating from Kent Science Park. Our links with the BEST Network across the country mean we can offer even more business opportunities to new businesses based here. We encourage our tenants to be the best they possibly can be by offering a wide range of facilities and hope that ADEY can continue to build on their already admirable success knowing that KSP will do all we can to assist them”.
