NETPark based Kromek wins two new contracts in medical division
Kromek (AIM: KMK), a radiation detection technology company focusing on the medical, security and nuclear markets, is pleased to announce that it has secured two contracts, worth a total of $1 million, with a new OEM customer and an existing Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) customer. Both contracts commence immediately, with one delivered over an 18-month period and the other within the current financial year.
In the nuclear medicine instrumentation field, Kromek has been awarded a $700k order from a new OEM customer to supply its proprietary Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) detectors to be used in the nuclear medicine market. The Company’s technology will provide higher resolution detection capabilities enabling better patient outcomes. This contract will be delivered over an 18-month period starting immediately.
In the Bone Mineral Densitometry market, Kromek has received a repeat contract of $340k for CZT-based detectors for the customer’s existing product line. This further re-enforces the run rate of this product group with all revenue from this contract to be recorded in the current financial year.
Dr Arnab Basu, CEO of Kromek, commented: “We continue to add new OEM customers in the medical device sector, working with them to build the next generation of medical instrumentation. Our CZT technology in medical scanners delivers excellent quality images and detection capability that lead to a better patient outcome. We also build strong and long-lasting partnerships with our clients, as highlighted by today’s repeat contract with another OEM in the BMD sector to supply CZT-based detection units for their equipment.”

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.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
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.
