AN economic development company is celebrating the expansion of a business based on its science park.

Business Durham is thrilled to announce that Filter Integrity, a designer and manufacturer of bespoke filtration validation systems, has doubled its laboratory and office space at NETPark in Sedgefield.

It comes in the wake of the firm securing a number of international contracts, including the design, development and installation into a site in Abu Dhabi.

The project will see Filter Integrity work in partnership with a UK based environmental consultancy to report ambient particulate levels in real time for a new power generation development in the region.

Andrew Chalmers, managing director of Filter Integrity, said: “The dedicated support delivered by the Business Durham team, coupled with the top class facilities at NETPark has been a key factor in the success of the company.

Councillor Neil Foster, cabinet member for economic regeneration at Durham County Council, added: “We’re delighted to see another ambitious business achieving growth at NETPark.

“Through the work of Business Durham we’re ensuring that the county is seen as a great place to work and live, creating jobs and boosting the local economy.”
