Introducing, the brand new Ideal laboratory.
We loved the time worn solid wood benches & heaving cupboards from our old laboratory… lots of magic took place on those surfaces and they reminded us of heating pennies over a bunsen & dropping them through our school exercise books on the last day of term in chemistry class.
However, we’re more excited about the brand new Ideal laboratory, that will become a new centre for eco-responsible product development, testing and innovation.
“The site has been totally modernised, helping us move towards our goal of being the most eco-responsible, ethical and sustainable supplier of high quality detergents and cleaning products that we can be. To start this exciting journey, we needed a brilliant, bright and world-class lab!”
Here’s some shots of the new, safe, durable and modern laboratory in Northamptonshire featuring these Trespa Toplab® Plus scientific worktops, including a new style of Trespa door and drawer with integral handles. We finished the lab with a poured resin floor and some cool wall graphics designed by the brilliant Eleonora Marton!
