The Amity Group was founded by Mokhles Tangestani-Nejad and Ram Singh in 1991. In 2005, Amity moved into the healthcare sector by developing several patented technologies in the area of High-Level Disinfectants (HLD) for instruments, surfaces & the environment. These initial products led to the development of the healthcare range.
In 2017 Amity opened a dedicated Research and Development Centre & Equipment Manufacturing facility, housed within their Barnsley Warehouse site. This 2,000 square foot resource is mostly used for product testing, ensuring that Amity are continually pushing the boundaries of chemistry within the disinfectant market and producing state of the art technologies to meet consumer demands.
Amity had an opportunity last year to take on an experienced designer in the relevant fields to make this idea a reality. Stephen Byrne is a resident of Malvern and with Amity allowing him to choose a site for this venture anywhere in the country he chose if possible to stay in his hometown. Link Business Centre offered a chance to make this happen. Offering the right size of unit, the position of the site along with having on site management made Unit 18 an ideal proposition. Stephen will be working on projects such as automated Whole Room Decontamination Systems, which provide professionals with a highly effective means of Infection Prevention & Control. He was particularly impressed with the modern, clean and professional feel that the Centre provides, which is what Amity were looking for, crucial when receiving visitors from such organisations as the NHS. Stephen has plans to take on local young people on an apprentice basis when the manufacturing process commences at Unit 18.
