A year of celebration continued at James Heal last week as a series of events were held to mark their 150th
anniversary, with the attendance of sales partners from almost every continent.
Established in 1872, James H. Heal & Co. Ltd., Halifax/UK, designs and manufactures textile testing instruments, which are sold, directly from the UK, Germany and the USA, and through sales channel partners around the world. The brand became part of the wider PPT Group, Halifax/UK, in 2014, with sister brands each focusing on testing many aspects of materials and products.
During a week of celebrations, visitors participated in a full day conference in Huddersfield/UK, where 2 new James Heal instruments, AirPro and HydroView, were demonstrated for testing air permeability and hydrostatic head, plus sessions on new and existing product development took place. The week culminated in a party attended by members of staff, partners, customers and representatives of industry associations.
»It has been a wonderful week of collaboration and further building relationships with our team and global partners, many of whom have been with us for decades, all joining together to celebrate the very special achievement and longevity of James Heal.«
Neil Pryke, Managing Director, PPT Group UK
