Kromek wins over $750k in new orders
NETPark based Kromek (AIM: KMK), a leading developer of radiation and bio-detection technology solutions for the advanced imaging and CBRN detection segments, is pleased to announce that it has received two new orders worth a total of $751k, with both to be delivered in the Group’s current financial year.
The new orders, which are both from existing OEM customers in the medical imaging market, are as follows:
- A $500k order, from a longstanding customer, for the supply of detectors for bone mineral densitometry applications; and
- a $251k order from a US medical imaging customer that is using Kromek’s CZT detectors in their gamma probes for nuclear medical applications. Following the customer receiving FDA approval for this system last year, the Group has received a number of repeat orders and expects further regular business.
Dr Arnab Basu, CEO of Kromek, said:
“These latest orders from long-standing OEM customers in our niche medical markets continue the Group’s momentum and underpin the Board’s confidence in meeting current year expectations. The Board also believes these orders are indicative of the regular, repeat nature of business in the advanced imaging segment. Once designed into a customer’s next-generation system, we typically continue to receive repeat orders, which can also transition to a multi-year supply agreement. Thanks to the value of our technologies for medical screening applications, we have established a strong customer base and we look forward to continuing our robust growth in this market driven by the significant opportunities in the SPECT and CT segment.”

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
