Our History

Founded in 2013, Salvalco was formed to commercialise and further develop the design innovation of Eco-Valve, the result of work carried out by the Spray Research Group (SRG) at Salford University. SRG is a specialist team which is led by Prof. Ghasem Nasr, Chair in Mechanical Engineering and Innovation at the University and who brings over 25 years of academic and applied research as a Director of Salvalco.




With a clear focus on commercialising the technology working alongside aerosol manufacturers and fillers around the world, Salvalco has been successful in securing in total, £2.6m of investment from the Foresight Williams EIS Technology Fund.

In addition, Salvalco has also been awarded equity investment from Beiersdorf’s venture platform, OSCAR&PAUL Beiersdorf Venture Capital. The investment underlines the company’s ambition in driving sustainable innovations under its sustainability and C.A.R.E.+ corporate strategy.  Both investments support the development and commercialisation of the Eco-Valve technology, including research and further product development.

Non-Executive Director Tom Goldberg is a key member of the Salvalco team. He is also the executive Chairman of AWI Group, investors in Salvalco. With long standing experience across a range of international engineering businesses in the UK, Germany, Poland, Ukraine and China, Tom received an MBE for services to international trade, and has been the Chairman of the Yorkshire & Humberside International Trade Board and the President of the British Constructional Steelwork Association.
