Since incorporation in 2013, the Sonobex team has been developing innovative technologies and solutions within the noise control sector and has patented acoustic panel technology – SonoTEC®.
The technology has applications across a range of sectors, including heavy industry, energy and transportation.
Existing systems rely on solid enclosures to mute sound. SonoTEC® makes use of individual panels which provide excellent noise cancelling performance and allow passive ventilation – a significant benefit for machine enclosures.
Professor Tracy Bhamra, Loughborough University’s Pro-Vice Chancellor for Enterprise, says of the acquisition: “Merford is the perfect partner for Sonobex to take forward its proprietary noise reduction solution and accelerate routes to market – improving our living and working environments.”
