The first fully comprehensive directory of all companies and research organisations active in photonics and quantum within the UK is now available online from the Photonics Leadership Group (PLG).
Searchable by location, region, target market and tier of operation the UK Photonics directory from the PLG is a unique resource for those looking to understand the depth and breadth of the industry in the UK. Drawing on the Photonics Leadership Group’s quantification of the £14.5 billion industry over the last decade we are able to provide the first fully comprehensive picture of the ~1,200 organisations active in photonics in the UK.
Organisations are invited to claim their listing in the directory to update content and provide additional information for visitors. Two listing packages enable organisations to add logos, custom descriptions, embed videos, additional addresses, social media links, update addressed markets and include a direct contact form. Any organisation missing is welcome to add itself to the directory.
The directory aims to increase visibility of UK photonics capability and support a healthy supply chain connecting customers, suppliers and innovators. Too often we only find local photonics capability when we travel to the other side of the world. The directory supports sustainability and resilience by providing visibility of local capability, updatable by the community, whilst encouraging international business and collaboration by being internationally accessible.
“We are delighted to launch this directory which will be beneficial for industry, users of photonics and innovators in photonics and quantum, providing a win-win solution that helps supply chains connect and, though enhanced listings, support activities of the PLG”. Dr John Lincoln, Chief Executive, Photonics Leadership Grp.
The PLG acknowledges the support of Harlin Ltd in the technical development of the directory and all those who contributed to the categorisation of organisations.
