Jet Aire joins NEPIC

Jet Aire Services are delighted to announce that we have joined NEPIC, an award-winning membership cluster organisation working with the chemical-using industries in the North East of England.


Membership of NEPIC offers immediate connectivity to a wide and diverse process industry incorporating petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, fine & speciality, biotechnology, polymers, bioresources & renewables and significant supply chain. Being an approved NEPIC member will speed up the procurement process to facilitate Jet Aire Service’s continued growth in this key sector.


NEPIC was formed in 2004 with a remit to reconnect the fragmented industrial sectors and create an industrial powerhouse to rival all other global locations. It was the result of the merger of two industry bodies – the Teesside Chemical Initiative, who represented the heavy base chemical in the south of the region, and the P&S Cluster who worked with the pharmaceutical and life science businesses that were predominately based towards the north. The organisation provides a collaborative business environment which supports members’ growth and sustainability objectives.


In 2014, NEPIC was the first UK cluster to receive the GOLD standard ESCA accreditation for cluster excellence and our chief executive, Dr. Stan Higgins is currently European Cluster Manager of the Year – a position he will hold until December 2016. In 2015, NEPIC achieved £3 billion of Gross Value Added to the region through their activities since our inception.
