Kent’s hi-tech credentials have been underlined by the creation of a new chemical laboratory by a manufacturer with royal pedigree.

ADEY Professional Heating Solutions is the latest company to move into Kent Science Park, Sittingbourne.

The business has pioneered magnetic filtration technology since it was founded by former British Gas installer Chris Adey 10 years ago. Last year, the company was awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Innovation for its MagnaClean filter.

ADEY has injected more than £100,000 in the new laboratory to develop premium chemicals. It will be run by Mo Jassal, a leading industry chemist and water treatment specialist.

Mr Jassal has more than 13 years’ experience in developing chemical solutions for the plumbing and heating industry. As chemical technical manager, he will head an elite team of experts.

Mr Jassal said there were many opportunities for ADEY to break new ground on product development. “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,” he said. “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.”

James Speck, site director of Kent Science Park, welcomed the arrival of another market-leading company. “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”.
