HIGH FORCE RESEARCH OPENING AN ADDITIONAL LABORATORY AT THE WILTON
CENTRE

High Force

is to open a new 1018 sq ft laboratory at the Wilton Centre in Redcar.
Located in the heart of the North East chemical industry and sited on a 75 acre world-
renowned business and science park, the new fully equipped laboratory features six
chemical fume cupboards and advanced research facilities custom designed for
chemical development. There is scope for future expansion at Wilton as the Bowburn

based High Force Research is one of the UK’s longest established chemical research
companies. Middlesbrough is home to many chemicals companies including,
Huntsman, Chemoxy, Fine Organics and Banner Chemicals Group.
High Force Research’s Dr Valentine said: “We will be staffed from day one with full time chemists based on site, two of
whom are newly qualified PhD students from Newcastle University. We are hoping to recruit more chemists in the near future
to help with our expansion plans at Wilton.
“The location is great with excellent facilities designed for Chemical Research companies including plentiful parking, a
restaurant, gym and open parkland”.
He continued, “With around ninety research oriented businesses onsite we feel that the location also provides us with
increased networking and collaboration possibilities”.
Wilton Centre’s site director, Steve Duffield, said that it was good news to be welcoming such a prestigious new tenant to
the Centre. “High Force Research is a well-established company and is creating a number of highly skilled positions that will
attract well-qualified people to the area and help to boost the long term prospects of the Teesside economy.
“We are very proud that the company has chosen to expand its operations here”.
