Ion Science opens new facility
01 November 2017
Ion Science, the manufacturer of high performance gas detection instrumentation and sensors for global occupational health and environmental monitoring applications, has completed the move into its new state-of-the-art £4.5 million, 1500m² facility.
Located in the village of 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, MD at Ion Science, said: “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."
Providing more light assembly, research and office space, the new plant boasts a range of exciting design features, including a ground source heat pump which extracts heat from the ground via bore holes underneath the car park and provides heating and hot water for the building without burning fossil fuels.
The building has also been designed to maximise natural daylight using large windows, doors and rooflights.
