Peel Tech Expands into Glenrothes

Peel Tech, the revolutionary and innovative filtration system business, has relocated to Fife.  With help from InvestFife’s Business Property Team, it moved into new, larger premises at Southfield Industrial Estate, Glenrothes, to meet its growing needs.

 

Founded in 2014 by Malcolm Wood, Peel Tech is seeing a growth in demand both here in the UK, as well as further afield in the Middle East, as the use of its multi-award-winning filtration system is developed.

 

Its patented eco-filtration system was invented to reduce waste from potato and food processing.  In addition to being sold throughout the UK and Middle East to fish and chip shops, Peel Tech’s units, manufactured by Fife Fabrications, also located in Glenrothes, are being put to other uses. The units are being used to clear and collect algae for medicinal purposes, in the green energy and fish processing sectors.

 

The business continues to innovate.  Currently it is creating a new, bespoke industrial-sized system for a client in Dubai which produces around 40,000 gallons of waste water a day.

 

Malcolm Wood, Founder of Peel Tech commented: “We didn’t ever envisage the success we’ve had, but that doesn’t mean we’re resting on our laurels.  We’ve ideas of how we can develop what is a simple and affordable system for new markets like the domestic and fish processing sectors.

 

“We couldn’t have found our new premises without the help of InvestFife’s Business Property Team.  They’ve been extremely helpful – all of them – in finding us a practical base for our expansion.”

 

InvestFife’s Business Property Team, part of Fife Council’s Economic Development Service, has leased a sizable unit to the company for an initial three-year period.
