There is a real sense of excitement at the manufacturing site of Aqualution Systems Ltd as John Lamont, Conservative & Unionist MSP for Ettrick, Roxburgh & Berwickshire visits their manufacturing site in Duns to launch their new on site, on demand delivery system. Aqualution Systems Ltd, manufactures fast, effective and environmentally friendly disinfectants, sanitisers and infection control products. Established in 2009, Aqualution Systems Ltd is the result of eleven years of extensive scientific research, design and rigorous development which has allowed the company to reach and exceed the regulatory compliance requirements of the EU and Australasia.

“We welcome John Lamont at an incredibly exciting time for our business” said Nick Meakin, Aqualution Systems Ltd Managing Director. “Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of people everywhere. To achieve this goal, we must protect the environments in which we work, live, play and where we are cared for. The majority of existing disinfectants on the market are compromised in the way that they are used and can therefore be ineffective in eradicating viruses, harmful germs and pathogens. This is one reason why infection control in hospitals continues to be a major issue despite all of the resource put into resolving the problems. Furthermore many are toxic and energy and labour intensive. Due to the speed with which our active works, in addition to being safe, our products deliver results within the contact times that are available in a busy cleaning schedule”.

“Our main manufacturing site, and research and development team is based at our site in Duns. We also have manufacturing capabilities in 34 countries around the world, and growth plans that will see us deliver a turnover of £150 million within five years”.

“January 2014 will see the launch of a brand new state of the art, on site, on demand delivery system which can be easily installed into even the smallest of sites, and only requires a 13 amp plug and mains water supply. This new delivery system will not only allow our customers to produce the sanitisers on site and on demand, but will also significantly help to further reduce transportation, packaging and resource costs, both financially and to our environment. The brand new system has been designed and developed in Livingston and Duns with our manufacturing partner JABIL. This has all been facilitated by the continued support from Scottish Enterprise. We hope that with the launch of the new system and our continued expansion in both domestic and international markets this will help our local economy ”.

John Lamont MSP commented “Aqualution are a great example of how a business can thrive in the Borders. Since being established in 2009 they have gone from strength to strength and now produce a series of world leading products that are sold around the world. It was great to be able to get the chance to meet the people working at the Duns site and to see the effort that goes into developing products such as Salvesan.

“It is an incredibly exciting time for Aqualution as along with their new products they have plans for development that should see them continue to grow for the foreseeable future. This is great news for the Borders and should provide a big boost to our local economy, and I look forward to watching Aqualution’s progress over the coming years.”
