Our Story

DC Van Alstyne (managing director: Nestling) and Andrew Rogerson (managing director: ABM)

have been friends for over 20 years.

Over a few drinks, songs, and guitar playing they began talking about merging their skillsets  to address the lack of pilot plant scaling resources in the UK.

DC has the experience, connections, bioprocess engineers, and AI specialists.  ABM has the software engineers, project managers, and designers.

The collaboration creates a 'ready made' scale up team and the experience to meet the challenges of scaling.
