The UK manufacturing and sales divisions of Carl Zeiss has cemented its roots in Cambridge with an expansion of its existing production site and the construction of new application laboratories, sales and service offices and customer facilities.
The city's Coldhams Lane has been home to Carl Zeiss Microscopy for some years. Due to the sustained growth in international orders, the business has acquired neighbouring premises in order to increase production of their scanning electron microscopes, including EVO, ∑IGMA and process specific tools.
This provided opportune timing for the UK sales and service business, Carl Zeiss Ltd, to relocate from Welwyn Garden City to Cambridge where one larger ZEISS campus could be formed.
The new building, located at 509 Coldhams Lane, has taken on Head Office status for both Carl Zeiss Microscopy Ltd and Carl Zeiss Ltd. The new facilities include five application laboratories for electron and light and microscopes as well as demonstration and training facilities for surgical microscopes, medical diagnostic equipment, camera lenses, binoculars and scopes.
