Filey-based Pulsar celebrates 45 years with 40% growth

Pulsar, the Filey-based noise measurement company has celebrated their 45 year anniversary with 40% growth for the year.

A recession-busting strategy has seen turnover double since 2009 and the business now sells to 45 countries, with exports accounting for 70% of turnover.

The firm provide noise measurement devices for amongst other things, factory floors, mineshafts, nightclubs and classrooms, their products enable employers to check and record noise levels themselves, rather than relying on consultants to make occasional visits to test noise exposure levels.

Key customers in the UK include the First Direct Arena in Leeds, which was one of the first to buy the latest Nova meter, logistics giant DHL and manufacturer ATB Lawrence-Scott.

Managing director Sarah Brack said: “Our success is down to understanding our customers and innovating to solve their problems. Our products are excellent value for money – one customer in the States recently contacted us about a product from the 1970s which is still going strong.

“It’s a reminder of how a small investment can give years of protection – and could save them from the law courts.”

“Our success is down to a lot of hard work. Everyone is clear on what they need to do to get where we want to be. We chase every opportunity, explore every avenue and we won’t let go until we get the order. It’s a real team effort.”
