Norwood Delivers World Class Modular Cleanroom System

When a world-class provider of industrial inkjet printheads Xaar expanded its Huntingdon facilities in late 2009, it turned to Norwood to develop its new state of the art modular clean room partition system.

The challenge was to design and deliver a continuous working environment, where maintenance could be conducted without compromising the integrity of the controlled environment critical for precision printhead manufacturing. Prior to project commencement Xaar set out a clear vision of what it wanted to achieve and took the decision to actively engage with modular cleanroom system manufacturer, Norwood, from the beginning of the design phase. The resulting modular partition design soon surpassed the expectations and ideas that were originally conceived.

Norwood - Changing The Face of Steel Partition System Design

For the past two years, Norwood has tactically kept below the radar, during the development of its new business model within the steel partition system market. Having strengthened its core businesses within architectural steel partition solutions, modular cleanrooms and healthcare partition systems the company is now ready to re-launch its new business model and to showcase its proven excellence to a wider market in the UK and beyond.
