New Premises for Ilika Expansion

Ilika Technologies, the science-led materials discovery company, has announced that it is expanding its operations to the University of Southampton Science Park. This expansion has been prompted by the rapid growth of Ilika’s business and the corresponding increase in personnel. Commenting upon this development, Graeme Purdy CEO stated, “These are exciting times to work within the Ilika organisation. The team is striving hard to ensure that we capitalise upon our leading position in the field of high throughput R&D and we are confident that there will be further growth and investment in both our technical and commercial capability as we continue to realise our marketplace aspirations”
