North East tech innovator Kromek seals new deal with US giant Smiths Detection
North East tech innovator Kromek has sealed a new deal with a US supplier of security screening equipment.
The NET Park based business, which develops and manufactures radiation and bio-detection technology solutions, announced a new distribution agreement with Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies. Under the terms of the agreement, Smiths Detection will market and distribute the Kromek’s wearable radiation detection and identification solutions in the Middle East and certain key markets in Asia and Australasia.
The deal expands upon an existing agreement which was sealed in July 2022 with Smiths Detection Inc, for distribution in North and South American markets. That deal has focussed on marketing and selling its D3 and D5 series of wearable radiation detectors, designed for first responders, armed forces, border security and weapons experts to detect threats such as dirty bombs, radioactive contamination and smuggling of radioactive substances.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
