Royal recognition for Severn Trent Services
Winning a Queen's Award for Innovation is one thing. Actually getting a member of the Royal Family to present it is quite another. Yet this is exactly what Severn Trent Services (STS) have achieved thanks to a visit by His Royal Highness The Duke of York.
STS won the award for the development of their highly innovative Eclox® Water Test Kit which can detect contaminants in just four minutes. Developed by STS for the British Ministry of Defence there are now over five hundred of the portable Eclox units in service with various military forces around the world.
The company are now turning their sights to a wide range of civilian applications where security of supply is an issue. This includes the many commercial and industrial applications where water is stored, used or processed.
The Eclox has been developed by the company's highly successful Instrumentation operation, which designs and manufactures a wide range of equipment to monitor the quality of both drinking and waste water and its products are sold all over the world. The Water Test Kit is one of many innovative instruments now being marketed vigorously by the company as part of a major international sales drive.
In this context The Duke of York's visit also highlights his role as the UK's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment. Since leaving the Royal Navy The Duke of York has taken on this new role in which he has worked extensively on behalf of UK Trade and Investment, the government body which supports British companies trading internationally with an extensive range of activities in the UK and overseas.
Commenting on the visit STS Managing Director Dr. Mike Ashley praised the team led by STS Director of Instrumentation Dr. Rhys Lewis, which have developed the Eclox, "The Eclox" he said, "was a great example of the kind of flexible instrumentation solutions which are made possible with the depth of knowledge, experience and resources our company has today. The message I would like to now send out both in the UK and around the world is - now what can we do for you?"
