The year has started positively for Torbay’s Hi-Tech cluster with the news that Nanusens, a market-disrupting microelectronics specialist, has opened their UK Headquarters within the EPIC Centre.
Nanusens develop MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) sensor structures that are up to ten times smaller than competitive technologies. This enables their sensors, which are used in everyday items such as air pods and smartphones, to make additional space for larger batteries and additional features.
Nanusens Director, Dr. Josep Montanyà i Silvestre, said: “This is an amazing area to locate a business like ours. We have access to amazing facilities within EPIC and are excited about the prospect of collaborating with the businesses that are already here. Torbay Council has been very supportive so far with helping us make this move.”
Nanusens will be just the first overseas firm to move to Torbay this year with a North American electronics business also lined up to join EPIC as soon as physically possible.
This is encouraging news for the local economy as it will bring new investment to the area and grow what is already a vibrant technology community.
Nanusens are looking to recruit design engineers for their EPIC site and ultimately grow a team within the centre.
EPIC Centre Director, Wayne Loschi, is excited with the addition “It is very encouraging that Nanusens have chosen Torbay and EPIC as the location for the UK operation. We’ve worked hard to welcome this lucrative business to the area and it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to attract such a company. We are now looking at ways in which we can support Nanusens further to help them with their projected growth.”
