We are excited to announce that Adaptavate has collaborated with The Manufacturing Technologies Centre (MTC) in Coventry. We have started a two-month project to continue and further develop the work we have been carrying out on an In-line, continuous production process for our much-anticipated plasterboard alternative: Breathaboard.
The last half of 2016 was a transformative time for Breathaboard as we developed our production process, created over 100 prototype products for the UK Green Building Office refurbishment, and received some very impressive product performance results from our BBSRC funded project with the University of Bath and the Building Research Establishment (BRE). These are to be released within the next month.
The interest and orders for Breathaboard continue to increase and we know that to have the positive impact in the construction industry, at the scale that Tom, our founder envisages, we need to develop the critical technology and know-how associated to an in-line production process. This is where the cross-industry expertise and technical supply chain network of the MTC is critical.
Tom said “Working with a nationally renowned centre for excellence like the MTC means that we can find the solutions for our production process in double quick-time, reducing the time it takes to fulfil our growing customers desire to purchase this pioneering material. It is a really exciting phase of our development as this unlocks the scalability and therefore value of Breathaboard, making a high-performing product available in the quantities and at the price that out-competes other products in the market.”
Mark Wilson at the MTC says,“After meeting and working with the team at Adaptavate I can confirm that they are extremely knowledgeable and committed to bringing Breathaboard to market. Their experience within this sector has made our work relatively easy. Our work at the MTC aims to de-risk the company’s path to market by identifying proven methods and plant for which Adaptavate can seek further funding.”
Tom finished by highlighting that “the MTC have a proven track record in developing transformative, in-line production technologies across many industries and we are excited to work with them to help create the next generation of mainstream, bio-based construction materials like Breathaboard.”
