Adey’s ongoing pioneering work in maintaining and protecting central heating systems globally has been rewarded with a second Queen’s Award for innovation.
The company’s R&D work in chemicals and water treatment has been recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the innovation category.
Announced by Her Majesty The Queen, this prestigious award celebrates the excellence achieved by Adey in developing its range of high performance chemicals and is the UK’s highest accolade for business success.
Specifically, the award recognises the development of new chemical formulations for the company’s MC1+ ‘Protector’ and MC3+ ‘Cleaner’ range of products, designed to work in tandem with Adey’s MagnaClean magnetic filters.
“We’re delighted and incredibly proud to receive this great honour,” says John Vaughan, Adey Chief Executive. “It’s testament to our highly skilled teams. Innovation has always been at the heart of the Adey story.
“Since our original invention of magnetic filtration and the MagnaClean filter – which also received a Queen’s Award for innovation – we’ve been committed to developing an integrated approach to heating system protection. The introduction of a new arm within the business to research, create and test innovative and highly advanced chemical formulations was a natural step,” he adds.
“Innovation is about more than great inventions; true innovation must deliver commercially for the marketplace. The overwhelming response from our customers, and the award-winning industry recognition for our products and Best Practice approach to heating system protection, shows a great appetite within the industry to embrace new solutions.
“By bringing together the most experienced and technically able experts, Adey is proud to have created the most advanced chemicals yet seen on the market. This recognition at the highest level gives the whole company a massive boost.”
