Earlier this month the Island’s MP, Andrew Turner, visited Innovative Physics Limited, based at Landguard Manor, Shanklin.
Started by Managing Director, Mike Anderson and Chief Technical Officer, David Prendergast , Innovative Physics, who design and market technical solutions for radiological detection and measurement, have just won a substantial contract for the clean-up of Fukushima Nuclear Power Station, the site of the 2011 nuclear disaster.
Andrew Turner commented: “It is heart-warming in these difficult times to discover a small Island business which is doing very well, competing globally with the ‘big boys’ nationally and internationally. Some of the reasons behind their success are the proven quality of their equipment and their ability to come up with innovative solutions much quicker than the larger companies.
“Another reason for their consistent growth over the last five years is the fact that Natalie Harper, the Business Development Director, spends much of her time networking both here and abroad. In fact she has recently returned from a very successful Trade Mission led by Prime Minister, David Cameron”.
Innovative Physics was started in 2008 and now employs 14 local people, using many small Island design and manufacturing companies in the development of new products. They operate very successfully in the defence, nuclear and homeland defence markets, where they have built up an excellent reputation for innovative design and quality. One example of this is their Hot Spot Locator – used when de-commissioning nuclear sites to detect radiation concentrations.
