Mr Booth said that the link with the University of Hull was proving crucial in the search for young talent.
"There has been plenty of interest from the chemistry department in sending students here and we have been very impressed with the high standard of candidates.
"They bring energy and new ideas and, in turn, we give them experience of a practical working environment and the chance to show what they can do in terms of research and development.
"We have taken a single student on placement for the last four years and now we are happy to go up to two because we are confident we can oversee their development so they make can make a real contribution. Our business is growing and they can help us to take it forward."
Mr Warde-Pike said: "I was given the chance during my placement to develop my own ideas and take them to full plant trials. That's something I really appreciate.
"I'm happy to be back and also to have the chance to stay in Hull which has always impressed me since the first time I came to the city.'
