Business success filters through science park

Business Durham, Durham County Council’s economic development company, has announced more success with the expansion of a company based at its science park in Sedgefield.

Filter Integrity, designers and manufacturers of bespoke filtration validation systems, has doubled its laboratory and office space after being awarded a number of international contracts, including the design, development and installation into a site in Abu Dhabi.

The company is a tenant at the North East Technology Park – NETPark, a science park provided by Business Durham to nurture high growth science and technology businesses developing new products and technology.

The work being carried out by Filter Integrity in Abu Dhabi in partnership with a UK based environmental consultancy is to report ambient particulate levels in real time, in the range from 2-100µm for a new power generation development in the region.

Dr Simon Goon, managing director of Business Durham, said: “We are delighted that Business Durham has helped nurture this company and helped it expand and achieve great success in an international market. It is an outstanding example of the benefits of our science park.

Andrew Chalmers, managing director of Filter Integrity, said: “The dedicated support delivered by the Business Durham team, coupled with the top class facilities at NETPark has been a key factor in the success of the company.

Cllr Neil Foster, Cabinet member for economic regeneration at Durham County Council, said: “We’re delighted to see another ambitious business achieving growth at NETPark. Through the work of Business Durham we’re ensuring that the county is seen as a great place to work and live, creating jobs and boosting the local economy.
