Part of the successful Halma plc. since 1983, Palintest can trace its Tyneside roots back to the 1870s with the Wilkinson & Simpson Ltd manufacturing facility in Newcastle. The defining moment in the development of the modern day Palintest was during the 1950s when Dr Thomas Palin produced the world standard method for disinfection control, the so-called Palin System or DPD method.
Palintest today employs 100 people worldwide, with 86 being based at the main facility in Gateshead where all product development and manufacturing is carried out. To support export activities the company has branch offices in China, Australia, USA and the Middle East.
Managing Director Dave Sidlow said “The Queens Award is a great honour for Palintest but no more than the dedicated and talented individuals who make up our team deserve. Every day Palintest is manufacturing products of the highest quality that compete successfully in demanding international markets and also contribute to the protection of lives and the environment. We are delighted and look forward to continuing our successful demonstration of all that is great about British enterprise”
As the demand for water increases in developing markets such as China, Africa and the Middle East, Palintest is proving that British technology and quality is much sought after and more than capable of competing on a global stage.
