Renishaw’s Spectroscopy Products Division (SPD) has moved to the new Renishaw Innovation Centre located at the company’s New Mills headquarters in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, UK. This is a brand new building providing an additional 153,000 ft2 of space for Renishaw adjacent to the company’s iconic HQ, which is a converted 19th century woollen mill. The RIC was opened on 7 July 2015 by HRH The Princess Royal. SPDs new facilities also encompass a second, fully refurbished building, to house the Division’s production and supply chain teams.
Simon Holden, Director and General Manager, Spectroscopy Products Division, said: “We hit saturation point at Old Town and the move to the New Mills site has significantly increased our overall footprint, providing us with much needed space and room for further expansion. We now have the added benefit of state of the art laboratories, modern production and assembly areas, customised dark rooms, and larger training facilities. The Renishaw Innovation Centre also has a fantastic demonstration area displaying all of Renishaw’s innovative products and a 300-seat lecture theatre enabling us to run conferences and give our visiting customers the best experience possible.”
