Treatment Services design and develop control systems for timber treatment plants in the UK and abroad. Established in this market sector since 2005 we have been, and still are, the only independent software providers that focus exclusively on treatment plant control and data reporting.
As far back as 1996 our technical director David Poundall began writing the first treatment plant controller based around the XL450 HMI, for Protim Solignum. In 1998 he wrote the first UK designed PC based control system for treatment plants, again for Protim, using off the shelf SCADA software.
In 2000 he wrote the WorkNet™ system from scratch.
With this pedigree underpinning TSL it wasn’t long after forming the company that a fifth system, Spinnaker PC was developed, again from scratch. As of January 2021 Spinnaker has been deployed on 72 treatment plants mainly in the UK and Ireland, but spread out as far as Latvia, Sierra Leone and Mombasa.
