Fibre Photonics, a UK specialist manufacturer of mid-infrared fibre optic cables and immersion probes for analytical spectroscopy, has announced the opening of a sales, engineering and applications facility in Germany's largest technology park in Berlin.
'The Adlershof region of Berlin will provide Fibre Photonics with excellent expansion opportunities' stated Gary Colquhoun, CEO of Fibre Photonics. The region has a particularly strong life sciences cluster, consisting of an interconnected network of scientific, commercial and clinical establishments of more than 100 non-academic research establishments, around 330 companies from the sectors of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and medical technology, and the largest university clinical centre in Europe - the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Biotechnology represents one of the company's main customer groups.
The company states that although its head office and production facility will remain in the central belt of Scotland, the opening of the Fibre Photonics Berlin facility is a vital strategic development that will capitalise upon and sustain the recent growth of the company.
