Weedingtech is a British company that designs and manufactures innovative, herbicide-free weed control systems for the amenity and utility markets.
As far back as the early 1990s, our founders, a group of leading environmentalists, were concerned about the environmental impact of the widespread use of traditional chemical herbicides in the pursuit of higher agricultural yields. They felt certain that there must be a viable commercial alternative to traditional weedkillers and they wanted to offer the market herbicide-free options for use in sensitive areas. Working in conjunction with industry leading partners, they worked on refining the process by which heat is applied to weeds to kill them, arriving eventually at a patented system that used foam and hot water for the first time. Other companies had tried to develop herbicide-free alternatives; these included hot water on its own, and steam on its own. But we don’t believe they ever cracked it: those technologies weren’t efficient enough, and in our opinion, they didn’t kill weeds effectively enough. We believe Foamstream is the only genuinely commercially viable alternative to traditional chemical herbicides.
Since then the company has enjoyed rapid growth, backed by investment from the prestigious Low Carbon Innovation Fund and other high profile UK and European investors including Ben Goldsmith and the Moulton family. The investment has allowed us to develop and manufacture The MW-Series, powered by Foamstream, (specially manufactured units that allow for the precision application of the weedkilling system) to become available on a commercial basis.
Headquartered in London, Weedingtech has an international expansion strategy and the company has already appointed agents to handle sales across Europe and in Western Canada.
Founded with a mission to challenge the status quo and use innovative technology to solve customer’s problems, the future for Weedingtech looks bright. Planning is in progress to bring the company’s vision for herbicide-free weed control to the domestic market, reducing the impact of traditional chemical herbicides in back gardens across the world.
