One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of fine chemicals and rubber accelerators have announced that they are investing three-quarters of a million pounds in new state of the art equipment.
Robinson Brothers, the West Bromwich-based firm led by Adrian Hanrahan, has successfully installed six new vacuum units, costing a total of half a million pounds, across their site.
The new machines are capable of vacuums of less than 0.01 milibars of pressure, which allows the firm to control purity levels.
Most of the remaining £250,000 worth of investment has been spent on a 30L high pressure research autoclave, which will be installed in the final quarter of this year.
Taken together, these investments allow Robinson Brothers to enhance their capacity, improve their vacuum capabilities and to conduct more in-depth research and product development.
At a time of great economic difficulties for the country at large, it will also provide a huge boost for their customers and staff to see that the firm is fully committed to the future. However, for a company that was established in 1869, this level of forward thinking will not come as a surprise.
Robinson brothers have also announced that they will be attending a trio of upcoming virtual conferences. INDIA: Speciality Chem 2020. The World Biogas Summit 2020. And CHEMUKEXPO 2021.
