Ion Science stays on target to achieve £20 million turnover in anniversary year
10 Sep 2019
The world’s largest manufacturer of volatile organic compounds (VOC) monitors, Cambridge-based Ion Science, says it is on target to achieve £20 million turnover in 2019 – its 30th anniversary year.
Its results have been fuelled in part by Increasing global awareness of the need to monitor VOCs for air quality. The firm says this has driven demand for its high performance photoionisation detectors (PIDs).
Ion Science said the turnover boost set it on course to meet its 30% year-on-year growth objective.
This was assisted by a performance in April 2019 when it recorded an unprecedented £1.3 million turnover. The record month for the business was largely attributable to an order for 180 of its popular Tiger handheld instruments.
“There is no doubt that widening recognition of the damaging effects of VOCs on health and the environment continues to fuel our growth,” commented Ion Science MD Duncan Johns (pictured).
“It means that more companies are seeking well-designed, robust and reliable gas detection instruments for ensuring the safety of employees and the wider community.
In addition to the UK, Ion Science hash subsidiary offices in France, Italy, Germany, India, China and the USA. It has also benefitted from sales growth across Scandinavia and the Far East.
Added Johns: “As a technology led business, it is imperative we continue to move forward and push boundaries, which has been demonstrated by considerable investment in strategically located subsidiary offices in Europe and the rest of the world, as well as the expansion of our MiniPID sensor range, with a focus on indoor air quality applications.”
