Continuing global success has encouraged powder characterisation specialist Freeman Technology to relocate into new larger premises based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK. The brand new 6,000 sq ft global headquarters has been fitted out to meet the company’s exact requirements for more manufacturing and office space, as well as housing a 300 sq ft applications laboratory.

The move from Freeman Technology’s previous home in historic buildings at the foot of the UK’s famous Malvern Hills, into this ultra-modern facility, comes just over a decade after the company launched its first powder testing instrument. While sorry to leave behind the picturesque environment, Director of Operations Tim Freeman looks forward to establishing operations in Tewkesbury.  

“I am delighted to be able to report that demand for the FT4 Powder Rheometer continues to grow around the world and across powder processing industries,” he said. “As a result, not only are we building more systems, but are continuing to invest in R&D and applications development. This new facility will enable us to scale up our manufacturing and R&D operations and continue to expand well into the future.”

 “As a company we have always invested heavily in R&D but have not previously had the freedom to expand the team,” said Freeman. “Now the new laboratory will give us the opportunity for additional in-house research into powder behaviour and processing and allow us to provide even more extensive applications support for our customers.”   

Freeman Technology has enjoyed a continued period of growth and success. In 2011 the company has not only added to its UK-based team but has also expanded its global distribution network, with new partnerships covering Japan, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan.

Freeman Technology specialises in providing systems for the measurement of powder flow properties and has over a decade of experience in powder flow and powder characterisation. With a significant commitment to R&D and applications development, the company delivers extensive know-how alongside its universal powder tester, the FT4 Powder Rheometer.

Freeman systems are installed around the world in a diverse range of industries, including metals and ceramics. Correlating the powder data they supply with processing performance enables clients to quantify and exploit operational experience to optimise their processes.
