Beverley-based Hodgson Sealants, one of the largest sealant manufacturers in the UK, has unveiled its brand new, state-of-the-art research and development laboratory.
The new laboratory was designed and fitted by local firm, Lab Systems Furniture, and will be used by the company to create bespoke sealants for its clients.
The laboratory will also be used for developing new products, such as the recently launched Hodgson Hybrid range, which uses innovative polymer technology to offer the benefits of a sealant and adhesive in one product.
Hodgson Sealants prides itself on being able to offer a personal service, which is why the laboratory plays a pivotal role in its operation. Instead of simply offering an ‘off the shelf’ product, Hodgson Sealants takes its clients’ substrates and tests them in their laboratory to ensure the product they recommend is as effective as possible and suitable for its application.
Rachael Best, Commercial Manager for Hodgson Sealants, comments:
“It’s an exciting time for Hodgson Sealants, because not only have we just launched our Hybrid range, but we are also starting to make use of our brand new laboratory. We feel our personal service sets us apart from the competition, and our new laboratory facilities will enable us to continue going that extra mile to create bespoke solutions for our clients.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Lab Systems Furniture for surpassing our expectations with the design and quality of our laboratory. Our R&D team are already using the facility to test products for our clients.”
Hodgson Sealants was established in 1968 and caters for a wide range of market sectors, including, caravan, leisure and transportation, modular buildings, general construction, industrial roofing and cladding, glass, glazing and joinery. The company prides itself on consistent product quality and its ability to tailor solutions to its customers’ needs.
