2012 is set to be a significant year in the history of Falmouth-based company Research Instruments Ltd (RI).
Not only will it be celebrating its 50th birthday this year, but also opening its new high tech manufacturing site on Bickland Industrial Park.
The company specialises in the design and manufacturing of cutting-edge technology and medical devices for the field of IVF (in vitro fertilisation) and is now looking to expand its staff to help meet the increased demand from the UK and overseas.
MD Bill Brown said: “Our new product range has been so popular that once again we have to expand our manufacturing section to keep up with demand.
“This is especially encouraging as it helps us strengthen our position as the largest hardware IVF (in vitro fertilisation) supplier in the world and we look forward to a further 50 years of success.”
