Having gone from strength to strength with an increasing sized workforce, two relocations to larger premises and a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, Astech Director, Anthony Moran commented “This is a significant milestone for us and we hope it reinforces our reputation for quality and longevity. We have ambitious plans to broaden our product portfolio and to keep offering valuable solutions to our customers”. He continued: "We are committed to being ‘best in class’ and if we continue to improve we can only become even more successful. In addition to thanking our dedicated Astech team for all their hard work and commitment over the last 18 years we would like to thank our many clients that have entrusted Astech to provide them with innovative and intelligent design solutions”
