The company, a global leader in sensor technology, artificial intelligence and pattern recognition, has been shortlisted in the Export Award Category of the Made in the South East Awards.
It is the third year running that Innovative Physics, who are based at Landguard Manor, have been shortlisted for a Made in The South East award and it was a winner of the 2018 Digital Engineering Technology category.
In its eighth year, the awards recognise and reward manufacturing companies based in the region that have demonstrated success in innovation, product development and revenue growth in either domestic or overseas markets.
Run by Insider, the awards showcase many of the high quality manufacturing businesses in the region that have built reputations for first-class products and services.
Welcoming the nomination Mike Anderson, Innovative Physics chief executive, said:
“We pride ourselves on customising solutions for the needs of our customers’ across the globe including in Canada, China and Japan.
“As you can imagine, the Covid restrictions on travel have meant we have had to adapt in order to maintain and develop our business relationships so it is really satisfying to have been shortlisted for this export award.”
Innovative Physics’ recent business successes have been largely based on its ground-breaking Hot Spot Locator – a portable device that identifies and grades radio activity that was developed in the wake of the Fukushima disaster.
Increasingly however the company is using its expertise in the field of homeland security and cancer detection and treatment.
The winners of the Made in the South East will be announced in March.
