Todd Research Limited was formed in January 1950 and began by designing and manufacturing equipment for the medical and veterinary sectors.
Todd Research makes a breakthrough in X-ray technology by developing the world’s first X-ray scanner specifically designed for mailroom security.
Throughout the 1980s the business evolves to focus solely on the development of X-ray, metal detection and blast suppression equipment.
In November 2005 Todd Research is acquired by Asfare Group, a leading specialist in products and services for the Emergency Services market.
In March 2007 Todd Research changes hands again, as Asfare Group is acquired by a leading fire and rescue services business in a reverse merger.
In December 2010 it’s formally announced that Todd Research had been acquired once again, this time in a Management Buy Out (MBO).
