A COMPANY that uses glass blowing skills to make cutting edge scientific and medical equipment puts part of its recent success down to its relocation to a business centre in Bletchley.
BioChem Glass (Apparatus) Ltd is one of a handful of UK firms that specialises in scientific glassblowing, in fact anyone in the world who has had a blood test will have benefited from products produced by the company.
BioChem MD, Will Fludgate, said MK: TWO in Bletchley, custom-built and managed by Bucks-Biz, has proved the perfect base.
He said: “Three years ago we needed to move premises and looking around there were not a lot of places that could provide the right combination of space, facilities and security,” he explained.
“Fortunately I met with Joe Muscat as he was developing the MK:TWO Business Centre and when I explained the unique nature of the business he was only too happy to help.”
A key factor in the decision to move to MK:TWO was the availability of a three phase electricity supply as well as its easy access to the national motorway network.
“Because we are one of just a handful of scientific glass blowers, our products need to be transported around the country and even internationally,” continued Mr Fludgate. “MK: TWO also has excellent bays for incoming raw materials as well as loading finished products.”.
Bucks-Biz MD Joe Muscat said: “We are delighted to have Will and BioChem operating from one of our business centres, they really do provide an excellent example of how highly-skilled manufacturers can thrive in a suitable environment.”
