On 20 November 1963, Mr Neil Marten MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aviation, officially declared open the new high-temperature fuel flow laboratory of Elliott-Automation Ltd. at Rochester in Kent.
This new facility was built entirely as a private venture and was used primarily for the testing of aircraft fuel flow meters and fuel system components under the range of environmental conditions likely to be encountered in supersonic flight.
