Innovation & Technology: Our headquarters is near Northampton, England, where we also have a purpose-built, state-of-the-art Research & Development Center, plus Technical support facilities that provide product evaluation, testing and application support to our customers. We have a strong commitment to research and innovation.
Governance: We are a common trusteeship company, having no external shareholders, with a strong commitment to support our workforce, society and the environment. We are proud of the fact that we have been a socially responsible corporation long before the term was popularised, having been made a key part of our culture by the Companies' founder.
As we have no external shareholders we cannot be acquired, so we are more stable and can think more long term. That makes us a great company to do business with as either a customer or a supplier.
We hope you will choose to do so.
