Equinox move to Boole Technology Centre

Equinox, a meteorological instruments supplier, has now moved to the the Boole Technology Centre at the Lincoln Science and Innovation Park.

Based in Lincoln, Equinox has been supplying instruments to universities and research companies in the UK and Ireland for ten years.

The company is now looking to expand through the new space off Beevor Street.

Science Park Director, Tom Blount, said: “We have agreed terms on another unit, so half of the 22 originally available have now been let and we have formal offers for a further three.”

The space was let to the company by the commercial agent Banks Long & Co.

William Wall, Banks Long & Co Director, said: “As expected, The Boole Technology Centre continues to attract the attention of innovative companies with high-growth potential. They are particularly keen to tap into the flexbility of the premium office and lab space which is on offer.”

The £6.8 million Lincoln centre’s half of the units have been snapped up by some of the big firms of the city in less than a year after letting out first space.

 

Of the firms that have moved into the Boole Technology Centre over the past ten months, several have recruited technical and scientific staff, including computer scientists and life scientists, from the University. Some have moved here specifically to access those skills and the wider expertise within the Joseph Banks Laboratories, such as Arden Biotechnology

Other tenants include Nutrapharma Ltd, a developer of new technology in the field of neutraceuticals; cyber security specialist Krypto Kloud; software developer Tenantia and Metis Aerospace, whose technology allows for the detection of civilian drones.
