Quorum Technologies has recently relocated to a new, purpose-built factory and offices in the village of Laughton in East Sussex – an attractive, rural location on the edge of the South Downs National Park, yet with ready access to London, Gatwick airport and continental Europe.
The move has united the specimen preparation division (previously Emitech) and cryo preparation division in a single modern facility shared with Quorum’s sister company UHV Design, although both companies will continue to operate as distinct and separate businesses.
“This superb new state-of-the-art facility has been designed and built to meet the specific needs of both companies” explained David Barnbrook, Managing Director of Quorum Technologies.
“Built to the very highest design standards, the modern production area is fitted with an ISO clean room” continued David. “An attractive demonstration suite houses our market-leading cryo-SEM and coating products and presents an attractive environment for our visiting customers”.
In addition to being Managing Director at Quorum Technologies, David is Director and Chief Operating Officer at Judges Scientific plc - the parent company of Quorum and UHV Design.
Judges investment of nearly £3 million in this site and new factory shows its continuing commitment to develop and expand its existing businesses and ensure they have the premises and facilities needed to keep them at the forefront of their respective fields. Combining both companies into this new facility provided a unique opportunity to improve the working environment for the employees and provide the necessary space for future expansion.
