Micronclean are Building in India

29 Nov 2018

Micronclean is pleased to announce that work has started on its Indian Cleanroom Laundry. This important milestone was marked by a ceremony attended by British Deputy High Commissioner, Mr Dominic McAllister, Chairman of Micronclean Ltd, Simon Fry, Managing Director of Micronclean India, Andrew Cole and members of the Project Management. 

The ceremony was the culmination of months of activity in selecting the correct site to be able to tap into India’s rapidly expanding Pharmaceutical Industry. The multi-million-pound investment in an ISO Class 5 Cleanroom laundry will use Micronclean’s proven process technologies to deliver a GMP compliant cleanroom laundry service that will be unique in India. It will also be an opportunity to develop innovative new technologies that can then be used back in the UK operations.

Simon Fry, Chairman of Micronclean said: ”We are delighted to have started the development of our Indian Laundry after months of planning. We are committed to serving the growing Indian cleanroom market by offering a unique service that will bring quality and efficiency to our new customer base here in India. We see this as a valuable service offering, enhancing the regulatory compliances of the Indian Pharmaceutical and Bio-Tech businesses”  British Deputy High Commissioner Dominic McAllister said: “Micronclean has a product and service portfolio which ranges from laundered garment rental services for high-tech/pharmaceutical companies, to cleanroom supplies which are exported to over 30 countries worldwide. I welcome Micronclean’s entry into Karnataka. This is another example of UK industry support for ‘Make in India’. UK investment into India is strong and growing – the UK has been the largest G20 investor in India and third largest investor overall (after Singapore and Mauritius) since 2010.” “Our ambitious UK-India Tech Partnership pairs the UK’s world-leading expertise with India’s tech transformation.  Announced by our two prime ministers in April, the Tech Partnership will create thousands of jobs, generate investment in both our economies, and encourage us to work together to tackle global challenges. December’s India/UK Future TECH Festival will bring together business, policy makers, venture capital, scientists and entrepreneurs to celebrate collaboration and to showcase UK/Indian expertise,” he added.
