The Early Years. IRC House was home for over 10 years. An old Victorian school house in the centre of the New Forest town of Pennington.
The building is now occupied by our colleagues "Pisces Conservation."
Materials Technology Limited is an independent, privately owned, materials consultancy company. We have been in operation for 30 years and were originally formed in 1979 by our founder Derek Bates under the name of DRB Consulting. Shortly after, the name of the company then became DRB Materials Technology to reflect the wide scope of materials that the company was dealing with.
In 2006 the company acquired the operating interests of Bayworth Plastics & Rubber and took the opportunity to update the company name, logo and structure to become Materials Technology Ltd. In 2007 Materials Technology Ltd acquired a brand new purpose designed building to accommodate its expanding facilities and moved from its location in the New Forest (IRC house) to its new facilities located on the edge of Southampton (Rushington Business Park). The new facilities contain an on site laboratory for rapid turn around of work.
We serve a broad range of clients and industries and no task is too big or too small for us. From litigation work on individual cases to R&D programs for large multinationals. Approximately 70% of work is for UK based clients and 30% is for international clients. We also work closely with and have contracts with other laboratories and hence can offer a one stop facility. If we are unable to assist you we will do our best to find someone else who can.
Our overall aim is to provide you with cost effective, high quality solutions to your materials problems.
