Minister for Science visits Specac

Specac welcomed its local Member of Parliament, Jo Johnson, on Friday 6th November 2015. Jo is also Minister of State for Universities and Science.


The Management Team gave Jo a guided tour of the facility in Orpington, and showed him the range of spectroscopic accessories that the company offers. The visit was timely as it coincided with the launch of the new Pearl liquid analysis accessory, which was launched at Royal Society of Chemistry on Tuesday 10th November in Piccadilly, London. Pearl is the latest innovate product from the Specac design team, another example of great, British engineering.

Jo was particularly interested in the success Specac has had in growing exports to emerging economies, and that it is at the forefront of the drive to encourage small to medium enterprises to export.

Specac looks forward to the opportunity to work alongside Jo to promote science in the UK.
