About the company

"Are you ready for an exciting opportunity to join the growing global team at Peak Scientific HQ?

We are a global market leader in the design, manufacturing and servicing of instrument gas generators for analytical laboratories, some pretty fancy stuff. Established in an old leaking shed in Linwood back in 1997, we’ve now grown to an international footprint of 500 staff across 26 countries. So, we upgraded our corporate Headquarters, and high-tech manufacturing and R&D facilities to Inchinnan, along with our colourful wallpaper. With over a decade of sustained high growth, we’re proud to say we’re one of Scotland’s fastest-growing manufacturing businesses. Over the last five years, the company has enjoyed rather impressive annual growth between 25 and 30%, overall and 60% growth across the service division, selling 90% of our gas generator products overseas to over 126 countries. It’s exciting, to say the least!"
