John Clements, managing director of gas analysers manufacturer Signal Group, has retired.

Having founded the business in 1977, John Clements has now been succeeded by his son James Clements, who assumed the role from 1 January 2019.

John Clements says: “It’s been an exciting journey and I am immensely proud of what we have created. Around us we have seen the UK manufacturing industry decline in the face of global competition from low cost regions, but we have thrived, and I attribute this success to three key factors.

“Firstly, the purchase of a Signal analyser represents an investment in quality; customers trust our analysers to deliver accurate reliable data, so we are focused, almost to obsession, on delivering instruments that meet or exceed their published performance characteristics.

“Secondly, we invest heavily in product development; responding to customer needs so that our products are continually improving. Thirdly, we employ high quality staff. If you want to develop the best instruments, you need the best people, and you need to keep them.”

Following the completion of a degree in Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Bath, James Clements (pictured, below) has undertaken a number of technical roles at Signal over the last 15 years, including responsibility for product development.

Looking forward, he says: “It is an enormous honour to take over the reins at Signal Group and I am really excited about the future. We have just completed the development of the Series IV analysers, which now offer an enormous number of new features, so we are poised for significant growth.

“The new analysers have 3G, 4G, GPRS, Bluetooth and satellite compatibility, and each instrument is built with its own IP address, so users have simple and secure access to their analysers at any time, from anywhere.”
