Facilities to support growth plans

His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester paid tribute to the newly redeveloped Kingsway Business Park, in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, during an official visit this month.

Vindon Scientific operates in several markets, including the healthcare, pharmaceutical, life sciences, food sectors and heritage sectors. It is a leading supplier of environmental control products and services for the management of temperature, humidity and light, where controlled environment storage is needed.

The Duke of Gloucester formally opened the new state-of-the-art premises and met Vindon’s directors who gave him a tour of the 29,000ft2 facilities, which are now fully operational and geared up to support the company\'s ambitious growth plans.

His Royal Highness was shown the specialist products and services that Vindon provides, including stability storage, ultra-low temperature facilities and cryogenic sample storage for stem cells.

‘It was good to see that companies such as Vindon were investing in future technologies,’ he said.

Patrick Jackson, business development director at Vindon, added: ‘We were delighted to welcome the Duke of Gloucester to our new home here at Kingsway. To be chosen to represent this area of Rochdale is a great honour. We’re pleased to see continued investment in the Business Park, which will encourage more new ventures to join us.’

The Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, the Mayor of Rochdale, Zulfiqar Ali, and leader of Rochdale Council, Irene Davidson, accompanied HRH Duke of Gloucester on his visit.
