About Us

Norwood is a leading cleanroom system supplier, delivering bespoke demountable steel and glass partitions, doors, ceilings and associated accessories across a wide range of sectors .

Our Story

Norwood have built a strong reputation within the manufacturing and installation of high spec cleanrooms, operating theatres and modular pods. Primarily, we operate within the Pharmaceutical, Life Sciences, Advanced Manufacturing and Healthcare markets.

In 2016, Joshua Bannister was appointed as Managing Director of the company together with his management team. Since then, their brand and capabilities have grown significantly, allowing further investment in the latest cutting-edge manufacturing equipment, product development, extensive testing and high quality materials. In 2017, Norwood was acquired by BES, the specialist in design, engineering and construction of complex environments, which have provided the buying power to deliver larger projects in the most efficient way. 

We have an impressive range of products, particularly the ‘Mediline’ system, which is a demountable partition solution, manufactured specifically for cleanroom environments. In addition to the flagship product, we offer a range of ceilings, door sets and glazed solutions.

We pride ourselves on excellent customer care and developing long-standing relationships with our clients. This approach has resulted in repeat business and an outstanding track record for delivering market-leading projects across the UK. We have worked with companies such as Bouygues, Interserve, Arup and Balfour Beatty. Our portfolio includes NHS, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Fujifilm, IQE, Cambridge University, VMIC and Jaguar Land Rover.

We employ driven and skilled individuals who are passionate about technology and product development. Our commitment to producing creative, quality and intelligent functionality is matched by our expertise in the field of manufacturing and engineering know-how.

Tailored, Personal Delivery

Our fully integrated team delivers innovative and performancedriven products, tailored to the specific needs of each client. Working across the country and internationally, we offer our services to architects, appointed contractors and end-users. We provide our specialist expertise every step of the way, from planning and design, through to installation and handover.

Building for the Future

Our clients especially value the quality of the product, speed of delivery and the flexibility of our system that is easily demountable and reconfigurable. Our modular solutions allow clients to easily remodel their spaces.

Product Testing

We are passionate about technology and we relish the challenge of creating new design ideas. We continue to invest in product development, undertaking numerous tests to achieve the best air permeability, acoustic and fire ratings, as well as compliance with cGMP, including compatibility with VHP, and resistance to bacterial growth.

Offsite Manufacture

All the products are prefabricated in our factory in Manchester, UK. The components are assembled and ready for installation, which helps to shorten timescales, improve quality and reduce health and safety risks on site.

Credentials & Testing

Our products undergo comprehensive testing to ensure they meet the fire, acoustic, structural and permeability requirements. All of Norwood’s standard range products have been tested to the appropriate British Standards, and the relevant certification can be provided on a request. We also work closely with our clients to provide bespoke project specific testing. In addition, all our products can be found on the RIBA product selector, through NBS Specification.

High Quality Materials

We purchase the highest quality materials for our products, such as our pre-coated steel which comes from Swedish Steel (SSAB). Our standard steel from SSAB is a foodsafe laminate which is a galvanised substrate layered with PVC laminate. The steel is manufactured to EN 10169-1 and has a very good resistance to forming and low gloss smooth surface with high wear resistance. It is extremely easy to clean and is resistant to most chemicals.

Our products meet all of the following criteria:

  • Non-toxicity
  • Corrosion protection
  • Wet-scrub resistance
  • Ease of cleaning
  • Scratch resistance
  • Water absorption
