Significant investment and expansion at Heraeus Noblelight UK to meet customer demand

09 December 2022

Following significant investment from their German parent company, Heraeus Noblelight Ltd. will re-locate their production and research facilities to larger, purpose-designed premises in Northstowe, North Cambridge, U.K., This will expand production capacity to reduce lead times for their world-renowned, high technology flashlamps and flash systems.

Heraeus Noblelight Ltd. managing director, Debbie Playle, explained, “We are seeing increasing sales of our flashlamps and flash systems across all our markets, largely driven from aesthetic and cosmetic, and the industrial sectors. In our new home in Northstowe, we will double our manufacturing output capabilities in five years, reducing lead times for our customers, while ensuring that our facilities continue to lead the way in workplace safety and sustainable manufacturing. We will also use this opportunity to drive apprenticeships and employee training, which we consider critical to our on-going success.”
