LONDON Grant Instruments, a supplier of scientific, life sciences and data acquisition products, has launched a business to develop and manufacture custom scientific and industrial products.
Grant Technologies (Cambridge, U.K.) will focus on markets which leverage Grant’s 50-year expertise in thermodynamics, data acquisition, analysis and communications.
“We have established this business in response to the increasing demand from companies for fast-turnaround custom-built solutions. In today’s markets companies want an outsourcing partner who offers more than a typical consultancy service. They want an experienced partner who can take a product from the concept design stage right through to manufacture with full pre and post sales support,” said Paul Pergande, head of Grant Technologies.
Grant Technologies specialises in the design and manufacture of equipment for accurately controlling temperature in industrial processes (minus 100°C to +450°C), sample handling and preparation, material testing and quality control in the production environment, medical analysis and diagnostic processes, chemical and pharmaceutical evaluation. Target markets include, among others, life sciences, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, automotive, industrial, oil and petrochemicals, scientific, military and environmental testing.
Grant has invested over �£1 million in new processes over recent years at its 30,000 square foot production facility at Shepreth on the outskirts of Cambridge. All core services are available under one roof including product design and development, performance and standards testing, production engineering, procurement, manufacture, commissioning and after-sales support.
