Guardtech cleans up with expansion strategy
The Guardtech Group, which creates CleanTech environments for companies in a broad range of sectors, is expanding its service department to meet demand from a new and fast-growing customer base.
Guardtech Cleanrooms has been repositioned to sit alongside new acquisition Cleanroom Solutions and existing businesses Isopod (rapid cleanrooms) and CleanCube (mobile solutions), while Isoblok Pre-Fab Cleanrooms was also added to the mix. These five firms now operate as distinct businesses under the Guardtech Group umbrella steered from the Haverhill headquarters.
Guardtech Cleanrooms is focusing on modular builds and Cleanroom Solutions turnkey construction services.
The revamped set-up has also led to the expansion of Guardtech’s Service Department, headed up by Ray Wheeler. Service manager Chris McGinn has been joined by engineer Kyle Lyons while the Guardtech Group decontamination team is also further strengthened.
Among a string of exciting recent developments, Wheeler and his team have expanded a service contract with a major UK motorsport team, worked on relocating extraction units at a top university and agreed a contract to replace filters at a university in Scotland.
This is alongside a number of landmark decontamination team contracts, including an NHS compound cleaning deal and a monthly deep clean for a biotech firm in the South East.
Wheeler said: “We’re in a great place now as the Guardtech Group to deliver a truly gold standard UK-wide solution to meet a complex schedule of service and maintenance needs for some amazing companies carrying out lots of innovative and interesting operations.”
The range of services is diverse – from standard validations, filter integrity testing, HVAC servicing and maintenance to monitoring system maintenance and gauge calibration.
