Established in 1985 as Freeman Process Systems, a specialist process engineering consultancy serving the chemical industry, Haden Freeman Ltd has developed into a major multi-disciplinary engineering resource for all of the process industries. We operate from modern purpose built headquarters in Denton, Manchester, with additional offices in Teesside, Southampton and Qatar that enables us to provide a local service to our clients in different parts of the UK and abroad.

Our flexible approach to managing our process engineering services means a number of our engineers are based at clients’ sites, supported from our headquarters by a fully integrated digital infrastructure.

Our clients & partners:

“Knowing what level of assessment we should be doing on our older ‘legacy’ plants was causing us a problem. The help from Haden Freeman was invaluable.”

Diageo Spokesperson

Managing Director Lansdowne Chemicals Ltd

“Pfizer is now able to monitor and control chemical dosing levels around the plant with greater accuracy and improved efficiency. This will result in significant long term cost savings.
