Hat-trick awards success for Island technology business

Island based business Innovative Physics have scored a hat-trick of industry awards in just a matter of weeks.

The Shanklin based company scooped not only the Technology and Innovation award at the IW Chamber of Commerce Awards recently, it has also earned two other prestigious industry accolades.

In a hugely successful November, the company was formally awarded the prestigious Institute of Physics Business Innovation award in recognition of its development of Hot Spot Locators – radiation imaging systems, like those used by the company as part of the large-scale decontamination process at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan, which identify the type and location of radiation whilst reducing exposure and saving lives in the process.

The company then scooped the Digital Engineering/Technology Award at the Made in the South East Awards, designed to celebrate the manufacturing prowess of companies in the South East of England.

The Landguard Manor-based technology firm which works predominantly in the nuclear, homeland security and medical sectors providing solutions to complex problems using sensor technology, artificial intelligence and pattern recognition was delighted to receive the trio of accolades.

Chief Executive Mike Anderson said: “We were absolutely delighted to scoop not one, but three awards and it is a great testimony to the hard work of all the team here and a great way to celebrate our ten years in business this year. We take great pride in constantly looking at how we can adapt and improve our imaging systems so that companies in a wide range of sectors can benefit from the innovation and technology that we are able to produce.”
