Latest News from Axium Process


After 17 years as Managing Director of Axium Process and 36 years specialising in membrane filtration, Dave Houldsworth has decided to “step back” from the day to day running of Axium Process and appoint Gareth Vity to the role of Managing Director. Dave is now Chairman and will continue to be a guiding hand in the future developments at Axium.

Founded in 2002 by Dave and Margaret Houldsworth, Axium Process has become a major player in the field of membrane systems and filtration technologies delivering turnkey membrane filtration projects across the UK, Europe and Middle East. Now employing over 60 personnel, Axium Process is also one of the UK’s leading stainless steel and exotic alloy fabrication companies specialising in customised filtration systems to Standards such as those associated with pharmaceutical, biotech, aerospace and ATEX Zone 1 areas.

Gareth Vity has extensive Project Management and Business experience with an established reputation and a “can do” attitude. He has delivered turnkey projects throughout the UK and Middle East. His strong commercial background, extensive engineering capabilities and proven “trouble-shooting” skills will be a valuable asset to take the company forward as it continues its dynamic journey as one of the major providers of membrane filtration systems and hygienic stainless steel fabricators in the UK and beyond.

Gareth will be joining an established and committed team of Directors; Derek Davies (Business Development), Paul Taylor (Manufacturing) and Margaret Houldsworth will continue as Financial/Company Director. This continuity will ensure the company’s key focus continues to be customer satisfaction with a priority to deliver a quality product, on time and on budget.
