After 20 years, Connect 2 Cleanrooms’ (C2C), Founder and CEO, Joe Govier, is leaving the company at the end of 2022. His legacy includes pioneering the modular cleanroom design concept, launching the first online cleanroom supplies shop (Cleanroomshop), and launching successful validation and training services. Under Joe’s leadership, C2C has delivered ISO and GMP cleanrooms for the likes of Rolls Royce, BAE Systems, and Astra Zeneca.

Joe says: “Growing Connect 2 Cleanrooms into the market-leading company it is today has been a privilege.  As the company celebrates its 20th year, it is now time for me to spend time more with my family and explore some personal passions. The team is positioned strongly for success, and I look forward to watching its continued growth.”

Nicola Coull, MD at C2C says: “Joe’s leadership at C2C has been remarkable and his impact reaches far beyond our organisation into the wider cleanroom industry. Thanks to his strategy, structure, and organisation, modular cleanrooms have become widely adopted and have helped the R&D and production of countless products that are critical to everyday lives worldwide. This work continues, and we thank Joe wholeheartedly for his contribution to our business.”

C2C was acquired in January 2021 and is now part of the transatlantic Angstrom Group. The Angstrom Group recently appointed Tom Chowaniec as Global CEO. Tom has 30 years of professional experience and led Global sales and service teams at GE Healthcare, Cardinal Health, and Leica Microsystems.
