As part of our expansion we’ve opened an office in the North East Technology Park (NETpark) based at Sedgefield, Durham. The park is an internationally recognised location, known for incubating world-class science and technology companies and also home to Durham University’s Research Institute – the first building to be opened at the site.
Our new office space in NETpark was officially opened on the 3rd of Jan 2017, allowing us to take advantage of a wider available pool of talent around Durham, from Newcastle stretching down to Teeside and the surrounding areas. Due to its perfect location, the additional office will enable us to take on even more bright sparks and talented, high-calibre engineers in the coming months.
The main focus for the new office is embedded firmware and developing our core knowledge in robotics, in line with the business strategy for 2017. The office is spearheaded by our Systems Manager Glenn Aitchison, who is rapidly growing our embedded firmware team. We’d also like to give a warm welcome to Stephen Flowers and Craig Robinson who are joining Glenn at NETPark.
The office will initially house four engineers, with the Incubator site offering the opportunity to expand into the neighbouring offices as our team grows.
When we asked our CEO, Brian Palmer, what his thoughts were on the new site, he said: “We’re delighted to have opened our new site at NETPark. This will make it easier for us to attract the best engineering talent to the Tharsus team so that we can continue to deliver game-changing robotic systems for our customers.”
NETpark is a hotbed for ambition, innovation, creativity and collaborative networking, so naturally, we feel right at home!
