Our technical and engineering teams are focused on application optimisation and product development. We have our own laboratories and also work closely with external test laboratories around the world, including the Schering Institute in Germany, CESI in Italy and TjH2B in the UK.

We take our responsibility to the environment seriously and have made significant reductions in waste and scrap by improving manufacturing processes and successfully implementing an Integrated Prevention of Pollution Control strategy.

In 2009 the team were very proud that M&I Materials Limited was awarded ISO 14001 certification in recognition of commitment to environmental issues.
