Validair Monitoring Solutions has received a £150,000 investment from the Midlands Engine Investment. Validair provides environmental monitoring systems and equipment and will use the investment to support growth across the UK.
With the new funding, the Malvern-based company will be capitalising on the growing demand for advanced industrial-grade monitoring technologies and solutions. Growth targets include bringing in new employees and supporting new market applications in automotive, aerospace and optics manufacturing.
Validair sees cleanrooms and contamination control environments proliferating over the next five years, along with the requirement for associated critical environmental monitoring expertise and technology.
Steve Wake, Validair Managing Director and chartered engineer, commented: “In regulated industries such as biotech, medical devices, food production and pharma, environmental monitoring and compliance are mandated. Some newer applications less so.
“But we see manufacturers in commercial marketplaces looking to drive-up their process quality to add value and a competitive advantage to their products. As a turnkey solutions provider, we are in the ideal position to help them deliver that value,” he concluded.
The Validair Group of companies has a wealth of cleanroom and contamination control expertise, which also includes cleanroom validation, testing and certification. The company is also a Gold Standard channel partner in the UK for TSI, the leading global supplier of particle counters and monitoring software.
