When the original business (Rowland Adams Metals) was established back in 1946, a relationship with insulation, eventually becoming Panel Technology was created.

To begin with the expertise and experience was predominantly around temperature control. However in the late 1990’s, the company began to manufacture a high-quality pharmaceutical cleanroom panel incorporating a precision-engineered aluminium honeycomb core.
The same management and ownership have remained since the founding of Gilcrest and development of Puracore®, as has the desire to offer a products of the highest quality with integrity at the core of all business activities.
