Ellutia Chromatography Solutions, the world-renowned gas chromatography instruments and solutions company, officially opened its new state-of-the-art facility in Lancaster Way Business Park, Ely, on 28 February 2017, consolidating its offices, laboratories, production and warehouse on one site.
Ellutia is the first occupier within the Enterprise Zone at the business park and the official opening was attended by Mark Garnier, Minister in the Department for International Trade and Lucy Frazer, MP for South East Cambridgeshire.
The new premises covers 15,000 sq. ft and the investment made supports the company’s vision to be a world leader in the design and production of innovative and unique gas chromatography instruments. The site will give Ellutia the room for its planned growth, with an expected increase in staff levels by 40% during the next 2 years.
Mark Garnier, Minister in the Department for International Trade, said: “Ellutia are the embodiment of Cambridge’s enterprising spirit and show what can be achieved when UK companies take advantage of the global demand for our products and services. With ambitious plans to increase their exports and break into new markets, my department will continue to support them as they achieve their potential.”
Lucy Frazer, MP for South East Cambridgeshire, said: “It was superb to visit Ellutia in its new premises. Ellutia is a growing business operating in a significant market and it was interesting to hear about their current exports and plans for growth.”
Philip James, Managing Director at Ellutia, commented: “Ellutia’s long-term strategy focuses on evolving and enhancing our product offerings, continually improving service to our customers and strengthening the network of R&D companies in the Cambridge area.”
He added: “A key consideration for us when choosing this location was our staff. By being based outside the city of Cambridge, our employees enjoy the travel benefits and lower cost of living Ely offers. But we are still in close proximity to Cambridge and London, where much scientific innovation takes place with the help of our instruments.”
