Investment in UK to Support Global Expansion

Aug 16 2019

Linkam Scientific Instruments, specialists in temperature controlled microscopy,

has made a series of investments under the leadership of new Managing Director, Ross Browne.  

Having been with the company for the last 30 years Ross, who initially joined the company while completing his electronic engineering degree at London’s Kingston University, has played a key role in expanding the business to a global network, supplying more than 70 countries around the world. With dedicated R&D operations in the Netherlands, investment in the UK has resulted in a growing R&D and production hub in Surrey, UK, to help support global expansion.

Founded in 1982 by Arnold and Louise Kamp the company designs and manufactures stages, electronics and software that can be used in conjunction with light microscopes and a wide range of analytical techniques.

Ross said: “The values of our founders are a guiding force in the business that we see today – their passion for technical design, can-do attitude, fearlessness and genuine desire to solve customer problems have fuelled Linkam’s success and growth aspirations. Arnold Kamp and his son Vince grew the business and laid the ground work, creating a friendly, family business culture that is still evident today. I am excited to continue this legacy and lead the business forward with a talented and dedicated team that continues to grow, both at home and with our partners around the world.”
