A MANUFACTURER OF liquid adhesive, sealant, coating and primer has marked the first anniversary of a move into a new £540,000 building.
Apollo, thought to be the UK’s biggest privately-owned manufacturer of such products, named the building after its founder, Robert Saunders.
The purpose-built facility is used by the company’s Apollo’s technical team and has a state-of-the-art product development and testing labs, two training and demonstration suites, meeting room facilities and office space.
Improved product testing
Since opening, the technical centre, the Tamworth-based business, has hosted over 60 customer visits and training sessions.
Technical Manager, Darrell Tibbins, said: “Having a dedicated centre for showcasing our technical expertise to customers demonstrates how serious we are in supporting them and the importance we place on our own ongoing product development and innovation work.
“Technical expertise has always been Apollo’s key asset and forms part of our ‘More than adhesives’ brand promise.
“The new centre allows us to replicate production facilities for product development and test applications ensuring that we continue to provide the best performing adhesives, coatings and primers for our customers whilst at the same time continuing our culture of innovation.”
