Hanwell founded in 1990 by Dr M Hancock

Hanwell began working closely with the National Trust and the Victoria & Albert museum to develop a comprehensive range of data acquisition and control solutions.

Our discreet designs continue to utilise unrivalled, British made radio telemetry (by IMC). Hanwell Heritage environmental monitoring technology is always produced alongside a museum or gallery with a specific conservation need that meet accreditation standards and ultimately support them in their fight for preservation.
