Fischer opens new facility for friends in the north

FischerNorthMaterial testing specialist Fischer Instrumentation (GB) has opened a new northern office (pictured) at Cinnamon Park in Warrington to compliment the purpose built Lymington, Hampshire facility it opened back in 1986.

The company said many industries that were important to it were located in Northern England and Scotland and that the decision to open there had been supported by parent company Helmut Fischer GmbH of Sindelfingen Germany, to offer improved support to existing clients and introduce its products to a potential new audience.

The Fischer Group, of which Fischer Instrumentation (GB) is part, was founded in 1953 by Helmut Fischer, and is a specialist in solutions for coating thickness measurement, material analysismicro hardness and material testing. Applications for its instruments are used in research, science, automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, corrosion protection industries and precious and rare metal evaluations

The company said that its new office provided “an excellent, easy access location, with a flourishing business community and a first class transport infrastructure”.
It added that open days on 20 and 21 November will welcome new and existing customers “as Fischer Instrumentation (GB) strengthens its commitment to the North of England and Scotland”.

In Warrington, Fischer will join the technology hub around Risley, Birchwood Park, Chester University, Serco, NNC, Jaguar Landrover, Vauxhall, Exova and Daresbury Business Park with its STFC CERN facilities and range of research facilities. In addition to the traditional chemicals, catalysts, fabricators and allied industries for which the area is renown.
