Carl Miller, Operations Director at Instro Precision, said: “Guardtech worked with us in a collaborative way throughout the process to ensure that the project came in, on time and on budget. The final product was exceptional and was constructed in such a way to cater for our individual special requirements for the manufacture of our optical assemblies.”
Chris McGuinness, Strategic Projects Director at Biocomposites Ltd., said: “Guardtech has proved to be a supplier of the highest standard throughout the whole process of providing a new manufacturing facility to support the growth of our product range. Excellent project management was demonstrated in design, build and commissioning phases.
“Site safety was managed effectively and disruption to neighbouring tenants was kept to a minimum. The extensive knowledge and experience of the teams involved aided our decision making to ensure all requirements were met. The success of this project has given us the confidence to contract Guardtech’s turnkey arm Cleanroom Solutions to provide further manufacturing capacity and construction of another suite is now underway.”
Dean Powell, Group MEP Director at COEL, said: “COEL were employed by Sense Biodetection to deliver a new Cambridge facility to enable their requirement for enhanced capabilities. Having worked with Guardtech previously we felt they were the obvious choice to deliver the specialist cleanrooms.
“From the outset Guardtech proved to be invaluable, offering both their experience, technical knowledge and showed a real willingness to engage with the project design team. Throughout the design phase the team worked with the client to design a facility that not only met their design brief but also functioned efficiently and took into consideration flexibility for future expansion.
“I was impressed with Guardtech’s delivery of the cleanrooms – the programme was tight and despite changes in the client’s requirements, they managed to incorporate these changes and still deliver the project on time and to an exceptional standard. I look forward to working with Guardtech in the future.”
“Guardtech built TTP’s ISO6 microfabrication cleanroom and bio-lab and we have a very good working relationship. Their quotes are always reasonable and they react very quickly. For the building of the cleanroom, they tackled the most challenging of problems – working in the smallest of spaces, dealing with metal girders in the way of ducting and working well with many on-site contractors. They have a knack for finding good solutions!
“They were within project costs and timescales, provided good quality workmanship and a great after-sales service, including maintenance contracts, validations and certifications. We highly recommend Guardtech for any future TTP or external cleanroom projects.”
Eric Che, CEO & co-founder of Eramol, said: “It was a great experience working with Guardtech on this project. Despite numerous challenges presented by Brexit and COVID 19 pandemic, Guardtech team has delivered the build project on time and on budget. We are delighted with the quality of the cleanroom build which helps with our MHRA accreditation for the new site.”
Natasha Chapman, Procurement Improvement and Process Manager at Oxford Immunotec, said: “It is with great enthusiasm I write to recommend the services of Guardtech Cleanrooms Ltd on behalf of Oxford lmmunotec Limited (OI).
“As our company grows, our product/service portfolio grows and with our constant endeavour to ensure the highest quality facilities to ensure product compliance and customer satisfaction, we deployed the services of Sarah and Lee to perform dispensing room and laboratory facility cleaning and environmental monitoring.
“In its infancy their knowledge proved to be truly valuable, not only to ensure the processes and requirements implemented following our requests were of the highest standard possible, but their commitment to educate and train our company in return was highly constructive for our personnel and facility maintenance in between their visits.
“The professionalism that both Sarah and Lee show, coupled with the fantastic customer service it comes with is unparalleled in a dedicated partnership I would recommend to any company considering the use of their services.”
“Guardtech were commissioned to build an ISO7 cleanroom within our relocated manufacturing facility. They were selected on the basis of their pro-active and collaborative approach towards design and the fact that they could deliver a complete turnkey solution from design to commissioning. The installation team were diligent, helpful and friendly and the build went smoothly, even with some complex challenges to overcome, such as an ultra-low headroom crane to accommodate and a bespoke transfer system to build into the fabric of the room.
“The project manager had a very good handle on the whole process and we were well communicated to throughout. The team were flexible when it came to accommodating on-the-job changes and we ended up with a cleanroom of very high quality and good value for money. Overall, I was very impressed with Guardtech throughout the project and would highly recommend them as a cleanroom provider.”
“Thanks again for all your efforts and for the professionalism of your colleagues at Guardtech, we are very happy with the final product and are hopeful that it will meet all expectations in the future.”
“We have been thrilled to be the representatives and distributors for Guardtech in Ireland. Over our years in operation, we have carved out a distinctive name associated with expertise, efficiency, and excellence. We are careful to partner with brands who can meet our high standards in these areas, and Guardtech exceeds every time. Our teams collaborate seamlessly, bringing quality service and finish to our clients. We wholeheartedly recommend Guardtech for excellence in products, design and end-to-end service.”
Edward Cockroft, Laboratory Implementation Manager at Cignpost Diagnostics, said: “Guardtech have been a trusted partner and supplier for us here at Cignpost Diagnostics. They’ve enabled us to deliver fast and accurate COVID-19 testing solutions to our elite Sports, Film, and Airport clients.
“Their world-class range of mobile testing units, from their CleanCube Vans to their 40ft CleanCube BS2 laboratories, have enabled us to provide our clients with flexible and dynamic onsite testing facilities that can used anywhere in the world. It had been a pleasure working with Guardtech over the past two years and we look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in the future.”
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Chris McGinn, Conor Barwise, Mark Wheeler and the rest of the Guardtech team for all their hard work and support over the last 12 months and beyond, and we look forward to continuing our working relationship for the coming year.”
“Our installation was time limited and involved several contractors working around each other. Guardtech team showed a great deal of flexibility and understanding. There was a snagging list but Guardtech worked well to get this completed.”
“The site successfully passed its inspection for packaging, warehouse and QC testing. We expect to receive formal certification in the next 45 days. One of the notes made by the inspector was that this was as good a facility as he has been in, which is indicative of your team’s hard work and quality of work. For that I would like to thank you and your team for persevering with us on this project. It only means that the standard has been set high for our next project together.
“Thank you and your team for all the hard work and dedication for the work you carried out at Noumed House. Noumed now have a fantastic facility and that is down to your team. With all the complications and design changes your professional attitude and desire to complete this project to the highest standard puts Guardtech ahead of its rivals in the cleanroom design industry. Thanks again.”
“Guardtech were a remarkable partner to work with – against the odds of an evolving brief, an incredibly challenging timeframe, and Brexit threatening to disrupt vital parts of the supply chain, they delivered a substantial project on time and budget. Level headed and fair, nothing was too much bother to discuss and solutions were provided time after time.”
Ann Mason, Deputy Production Manager of Pharmacy Technical Services at Derriford Hospital, said: “Right from the first Deep Clean conducted by Lee Burton and Sarah Mayes – in our NHS aseptic suite – we have not looked back. They are very efficient and great people to work with. They carry out microbial monitoring and particle counts, which saves us time and ensures we get back up and running as soon as possible. We greatly appreciate the work the Guardtech Group’s Decontamination Team do for us.”
“Our client, a South West based Plasma Technology business, had an urgent requirement for an ISO5 extension to an existing ISO7 cleanroom, in order to expand their processing capability. Customer demand dictated that time was of the essence, and there was only a 12-week window during which the ISO5 cleanroom could be designed and built.
“Following a late Friday afternoon phone call to Guardtech, the response was immediate and a survey was undertaken the following Monday, with the initial design complete within a week. The materials and equipment used to complete the build in such a tight timeframe were selected by Guardtech based on availability, suitability and cost, allowing the cleanroom to be built and commissioned within the required period, and within budget despite a couple of small setbacks. Overall, the Senior Applications Engineer responsible for the site was happy with the performance and outcome.”
“In the past year I have worked very closely alongside Guardtech on the design, installation and set up of our cleanroom at our manufacturing plant in Swadlincote. During our cooperation I was continuously amazed by the experience and customer focus that Guardtech provided, as well as the structural approach and organisational skills of the team.
“Personally, I really like the honest communication and project management style that they adopt, which made me feel confident about the project delivery throughout. Guardtech as a company showed a high level of professionalism and a customer focus and the project ran very smoothly. Therefore, I would strongly recommend Guardtech as a cleanroom supplier.”
“Guardtech offered a turnkey solution for us that was well designed and competitively priced. Throughout the process they adopted a flexible attitude and friendly approach onsite, delivering exactly what was promised to the agreed timescale in sometimes challenging circumstances. The ongoing function of our cleanroom and the aftersales support have been excellent.”
“We chose Guardtech to deliver our cleanroom based on the very high standard of the work seen at their reference sites and good industry feedback, but mostly their pragmatism and that of their people shone through. This has been borne out with Guardtech’s delivery of our cleanroom; the Installation Engineers combine practical solutions with a “can-do” customer-focussed attitude and nothing has been too much trouble for the team. I have no hesitation in recommending Guardtech. Please pass on my thanks to Guardtech’s highly respectful and helpful workforce.”
“Guardtech achieved the results we needed on time and on budget – we’d recommend their services to anyone looking for a high quality controlled environment.”
“I cannot praise Guardtech highly enough for their expertise and the support they provided from conception to completion. The Installation Engineers were friendly and efficient in every way while on the project – a big thank you from me!”
“Guardtech were able to deliver a fully qualified but cost effective solution to our requirements that performed beyond our expectations. I’m happy to recommend their products.”
