There were three cheers at QED Environmental Systems this September as the company officially opened doors to its brand-new facility in Cyan Park Coventry.
QED welcomed special guests including the Lord Mayor of Coventry, Councillor John Blundell and representatives from the brand’s distributor and supplier network across the world including those in the Americas, Europe, South Africa and China.
The new site will now serve as the international headquarters for QED Environmental Systems, delivering to Europe and a burgeoning Asian and Middle Eastern market. The 25,000 sq. ft. facility is brand-new and is now home to over 50 employees. It boasts a newly designed open plan office, kitted out with state-of-the-art equipment including an ISO:17025 calibration laboratory to support the gas instrumentation business. The new premises also offer employees with ample space to conduct one-to-one product training and seminars on a whole host of topics.
Councillor John Blundell, said:
QED’s success story is nothing short of spectacular. The company has grown from strength to strength and is evidenced by this state-of-the-art facility and its aspiration to be a hub of advanced environmental equipment not just in the UK but internationally as well. We welcome QED’s presence to Coventry and have no doubt that you will continue to grow strong over the coming months.
Dean Kavanagh, Managing Director at QED took visitors through the strategy and thinking behind the layout and architecture of the building. Building on the brand’s ethos to break barriers and innovate new technology, the new offices are set to encourage creative thinking and enhanced team spirit.
We are very fortunate to have found such a convenient and well served space. Coventry’s rich manufacturing heritage and popularity both in terms of culture and skill make it the perfect location to execute our vision as a world class environmental technology business. Our new location and enhanced operational facilities will help us grow and develop within an ever-changing industry landscape and we could not be more excited.
I must commend the hard work of the entire team here at QED. We have worked together to ensure a seamless transition for our network or suppliers and customers and am confident that we will continue to go above and beyond in our service to them in the future.
The opening of the building followed a two-day conference that provided the brand’s distributor network with master classes on the latest innovation in groundwater, soil sampling and landfill monitoring techniques. An interactive panel discussion was carried out and served as an opportunity to discuss the varying dynamics of the biomethane and landfill industries across the world.
Also showing her support was Director of AB-EN Environment and Energy – Avril Banks who provided visitors with some useful insights into the importance of monitoring gases in any AD (Anaerobic Digestion) biogas and biomethane plants. Senior Vice President and hydrogeologist at QED, David Kaminski provided attendees with details on the brand’s latest innovations and its contributions to the industry over the last few years.
