Butterworth announces new facility

UK contract analytical chemistry provider Butterworth Laboratories is delighted to announce it has secured a facility in Hampton, Middlesex.

The new facility is part of a project to expand the company’s UK laboratory operations by 15% in 2017. This is the first phase of a longer term plan to deliver increased capacity of 60% by 2020.

The move is a result of consistently strong growth and will secure the Teddington facility as the UK laboratory operations, while providing a platform for continued growth in key areas.

The expansion coincides with the appointment of David Hawkins, formerly the company’s chief operating officer (COO), as managing director. Doris Butterworth continues on the board as chairman along with the finance director John Gearey and newly appointed non-executive director Patrick Stewart. The changes will provide continuity of leadership and position Butterworth to continue its success in the long term.
