SMTL have recruited 3 laboratory technicians to strengthen testing activities from our satellite laboratory at IP-5, Newport.
Pearl O'Shea previously worked at Simbec-Orion Ltd and joins our Biological Testing Department. Pearl will be working with colleagues developing methods to measure the resistance of protective clothing materials to viral penetration.
Jess Fox has joined our Quality Assurance Department from Celtic Food Laboratories Ltd. Jess will provide resilience for our environmental testing activities across Wales and will also be involved with QA functions at IP-5.
Finally, Jakob Morgan has formally joined our Physical Testing Department. Jakob originally joined SMTL as a Kickstart employee and subsequently retained on a bank contract working across various departments in SMTL. Jakob will be working from IP-5 validating ISO 14685 medical mask testing methods.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of the new faces at SMTL.
