Queensgate Instruments, the global leader for nanopositioning products and devices, are pleased to announce the move from their former site in Woodland Road, Torquay, to the new EPIC (Electronics and Photonics Innovation Centre) in Paignton.
Queensgate Instruments (a brand of Prior Scientific) are one of the founding tenants at EPIC, securing 50% of the ground floor of the purpose built Electronics and Photonics Innovation Centre. This £8 million development project, invested in by Torbay Council, gives Queensgate Instruments and other technology companies an ideal development opportunity in the South West. EPIC focuses on supporting high potential companies and encourages foreign direct investment to Torbay and its microelectronics and photonics sector.
“This move will enable us to operate from a modern facility and grow our Queensgate Instruments business. The Centre will provide us with the opportunity to work collaboratively with other technology companies and research institutions.” Tom Freda, CEO at Prior Scientific.
Many of the world’s leading scientific instrumentation companies and research institutions are benefitting from Queensgate’s 40 years of experience and engineering excellence and this building will further develop their technology, range and customer base.
