Despite an unpredictable 2020, gas measurement and control experts Chell Instruments still achieved their key goals for the year and are now planning for a successful 2021.
Though the global pandemic caused disruption, the manufacturer has continued to support a growing number of customers and provide precision instrumentation around the world.
“Coronavirus has made 2020 an unusual year! However, despite the challenges, most projects within key industries like F1, energy and even aerospace have continued unabated. I’m proud to say our team has shown exceptional resilience and gone the extra mile to support our clients with the products and expertise they need” says Chell Instrument’s Managing Director, Nick Broadley.
The world-renowned gas measurement and control experts have maintained momentum throughout the year, achieving the targets set for the business. In addition, they have launched a number of new products including an Environmental Flow Test Chamber and a mini pressure scanner with EtherCAT connectivity.
“Even with the challenges, demand looks set to continue to grow in many sectors in 2021. For example, despite the current restrictions on air travel, we’re really excited that our instrumentation is being used in a number of projects working on the electrification of aircraft propulsion” states Nick.
This month also sees Chell Instruments celebrate their first anniversary as part of the SDI Group of scientific and technology manufacturers. The group now owns more than ten companies which produce products for use in imaging, sensing and control applications.
“Being a part of SDI has given us a new thirst for growth and is helping us to invest in the future. We can pool ideas, experience and resources with our sister companies to ensure we continue developing innovative solutions for new and existing customers” Nick continues.
As Chell Instruments export products to countries around the world, they have welcomed the UK’s new trade deal with the EU.
“We are pleased the Brexit deal has been agreed. As we sell to Asia and North America, as well as Europe, we have plenty of experience with the custom checks, processes and paperwork necessary. However, the deal means we can go on delivering UK technology to Europe with ease and without extra cost to the customer” concludes Nick.
Established over four decades ago, Chell Instruments produce pressure, vacuum and gas flow measurement and control solutions for use in industries including energy, pharmaceuticals, Formula 1 and aerospace.
The firm’s 2021 plans include continual development of their ultra-compact range of ‘Nano’ pressure measuring devices and a special project to deliver a self-contained mobile testing unit for a leading aircraft engine manufacturer.
