“As a new company in a specialised scientific field, it is beneficial to locate ourselves within a community of scientific excellence. Colworth is the ideal location for us. Our own laboratory space is state of the art, which is essential in assisting us to stay at the cutting edge of our ever evolving profession. A further incentive for our choosing Colworth was the shared access to laboratory equipment and the 24 hour on-site security. The fact that we have signed a five year lease is a testament to our belief in the park as the right location in which our business will grow from strength to strength.”
– Dr Mike Barber of SLR Forensics
