Leading laboratory test sieves manufacturer, Glenammer, today celebrates achieving £1m turnover.
Glenammer produces a range of high-end stainless steel test sieves, airjet sieves, and sieve shakers, to assist particle analysis, sample size grading, and material separation, and supplies some of the world’s leading laboratories and engineering companies. Established in 1998, the Ayrshire-based company now employs 18 members of staff, and exports sieves to 70 countries worldwide including Australia, China and the UAE.
The family-run business has been raising the bar in the test sieves industry, leading the way in innovation, and helping customers throughout the world achieve the finest and most accurate samples for over 20 years, starting off in a small workshop in founder Allen Matthews’ garage at his home.
Glenammer recently expanded it’s operations to a 7000 sq ft factory in order to control many of the sieve production processes in-house to improve efficiency and enhance product consistency, and underwent a full rebranding process to represent the change in the business. Turnover has increased by 15% in the past 12 months, despite the COVID-19 pandemic and having to close the factory for a number of weeks, and the company manufactured and sold a record 28678 sieves in the past year.
Managing Director Claire Wallis comments: “The million-pound turnover can be attributed to the strength and commitment from our entire team as well as our passion for and our technical understanding of our products, not forgetting the strong relationships we have with our customers across the world who continue to give us repeat business due to the superiority of our products.
The past year has been challenging for so many businesses, but I believe that we are now coming out the other end and our goal this year is for further growth across our product range, especially with the launch of our new 3D electromagnetic sieve shakers – a game changer in providing users with highly accurate results. We are extremely proud of what we have achieved so far and are committed to further strengthening the business by focusing on our core products and expanding into new geographical areas. We are extremely passionate about producing the highest quality of test sieves – we know that for our customers particle analysis is key and the most exacting standards are required, and our mission is to help our customers achieve the very best in their field.”
For me, Glenammer have a combination of great service, fantastic products and excellent technical advice. They are the best in the world!
We started a relationship with Glenammer in 2012 after Mr Allen Matthews visited us in Australia. The quality of the products and level of service we continue to receive from Glenammer have been of the highest standard which has remained unchanged since the beginning. The staff are always very approachable and helpful, it has been a pleasure and privilege to deal with them.
We have worked alongside Glenammer for five years and have always appreciated an honest, two-way, working relationship. We often pick up the phone and discuss client needs and how to improve and develop products to the benefit of both our family run businesses. We like Claire's fresh, open and honest approach and her desire to expand and adapt the business to keep up with the times.
We have moved to purchasing our test sieves from Glenammer as we have found the costs to be good value but they also offer an excellent lead time for delivery, backed up with good customer service.
The Chainbridge Steel Group are processors of mild steel strip mill products and have been working with Glenammer for 5 years now, supplying them with high grade mild steel for the manufacturing of their plates for their premium test sieves. Our businesses are both synonymous with high quality, accuracy and reliability, and we are proud to work with them.
