About the employer

Two friends, Mike Ashe and Chris Buchanan, set up Chillistick Ltd in 2007. From studying chemical engineering at university, the boys pursued varied careers including airport design and power generation before setting up the dry-ice business. Chillistick started off manufacturing dry ice - the solid form of carbon dioxide and within four years this business became one of the largest suppliers in the UK. Mike and Chris changed the focus from manufacture to innovation, designing a range of patented drinks’ accessories creating awesome dry-ice special effects.
