Specialist laboratory and medical equipment manufacturer LTE Scientific has appointed accountants and business advisors Beever and Struthers to provide tailored tax and audit services.

Established in 1947 and based in Greenfield, Oldham, Greater Manchester, LTE Scientific has produced a wide range of laboratory and medical equipment for over 70 years, with products shipped throughout the UK and internationally to clients in sectors including healthcare, education, research, pharmaceutical, biotech, food/beverage and chemicals.

The 70 staff at LTE Scientific manufacture sterilizers for the NHS, laboratory and medical markets, endoscope drying, storage cabinets and laboratory thermal equipment including ovens, incubators, freeze-dryers and environmental chambers/rooms for a wide range of applications in the private and public sectors.

As all of the Company’s products are maintained, serviced and tested by a fully qualified nationwide team of engineers who carry work out to both NHS and UKAS Standards, the privately-owned business has established an outstanding reputation with clients at home and abroad.

As a provider of both product and services to the NHS and the Public Health labs, LTE is proud to have played an important role throughout the Covid pandemic

LTE Scientific appointed the Manchester head office of Beever and Struthers to provide tax and audit services because of the firm’s long-established strength and reputation in the provision of tailored accountancy and financial advice to the manufacturing sector.

And Beever and Struthers’ membership of HLB International, a global network of about 700 well-established accountancy firms with some 25,000 staff in 150 countries, with most practices ranking among the top 12 nationally, also appealed to LTE because of its international client base.

Kim Cooper, finance and service director at LTE Scientific, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Iain and his team at Beever and Struthers, the transition from our previous auditors has gone extremely well”.

Iain Round, audit partner at Beever and Struthers and a key member of the firm’s manufacturing and engineering team, is delivering tax and audit advice for LTE Scientific and said: ”We have provided proactive business advice for many years to a wide range of manufacturing and engineering businesses, both large and small, producing a whole range of different products and LTE Scientific is a valued and prestige addition to our client roster.”
