In June 1992, the late Ian Pogson started the business from his garden shed creating a leak detection system “like no other on the market”. In the early days, Andel employed just a handful of staff to support the development and manufacturing of his new Floodline system.
The company increased tenfold in turnover becoming the biggest employer in Marsden before moving to larger more carbon-neutral premises near Barnsley.
Highlights of the past 30 years include winning the Queen’s Award for Innovation and becoming one of the success stories of the 2012 London Olympics, installing and commissioning several leak detection systems in the main stadium, the white water canoe course and the Olympic village.
Andel also installed its Floodline system in “prestigious” London buildings including the Shard, the Houses of Parliament, the O2, the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building and Canary Wharf.
