A-Gas Electronic Materials has officially opened its new 20,000ft2 headquarters in Rugby, Warwickshire.

The new facility includes a cold storage room, temperature controlled at 11°C, with 50% humidity ensures the optimum storage quality of dry film. It also includes a significant extension to the firm’s laboratory capabilities, including new inductively coupled plasma technology which enables staff to identify metal impurities at the lowest levels.

A-Gas Electronic Materials Managing Director Jonathan Sellars said, “This new facility highlights significant investment in the business and offers a great deal of space to expand. It has been carefully designed to our specifications and includes a host of state-of-the-art functions to enhance the quality of the products and services we offer to customers.”

Andrew Ambrose, Group Chief Executive of the parent company A-Gas International, officially opened the building. He was joined by fellow directors from A-Gas International, A-Gas Electronic Materials staff and suppliers, and former Chestech employees. A-Gas Electronic Materials was formerly known as Chestech.

The new premises provides A-Gas Electronic Materials with more space to store chemicals and in turn the company will be better equipped to maintain its commitment to current legislation on how these materials are kept.

The move to the new premises will allow A-Gas Electronic Materials to work much more closely with its largest supplier Dow Electronic Materials. As the business grows, new suppliers will also increase demand for storage space at the Rugby headquarters.
