Jon Tayler, director of Process Instrument Sales, said: “We are delighted to have won such an important contract and be working on one of the largest developments locally.

“We have been working with Treatt for more than 20 years and know the importance of providing precision instrument technology for them as the ‘eyes and ears’ of the site to ensure the highest accuracies and standards are met.”

“For Process Instrument Sales, the deal comes on top of a period of significant growth for the company which has seen it employ two more people, investing in new calibration and test equipment over the past few months and relocating to bigger offices - despite the lockdown.”

Process Instruments will be involved with providing all the sensors to ‘ensure quality and precision’ across all lines of production.

They will start work in the autumn on Treatt’s new headquarters, which will include labs and offices.

Mr Tayler added: “Industrial manufacturing will be a key pillar for the UK economy over the coming months. We are working with lots of local, national and international companies who realise the difference our process instrumentation can make to improve productivity, safety and environment concerns as well as cost to market. Data collection of management analysis and continuous improvement to lower costs and increase efficiency is essential for any business.”

Daemmon Reeve, chief executive of Treatt, said: “We take great pride in partnering local firms where possible, helping to keep the supply chain economically, environmentally, socially, and operationally sustainable. The new development renews our commitment to the town of Bury St Edmunds and allows us to give much more to our local community to which we are proud to be a part of.”
