Biotech company NanoSight has doubled its space at a business park in Wiltshire following rising global demand for its products.

The company, which employs 47 staff, has signed a ten-year lease on 9,621 sq ft of mixed-used space at Minton House on Minton Distribution Park in Amesbury.

Led by founder Dr Bob Carr, the business manufactures unique nanoparticle characterisation technology, which allows the tiniest of particles to be identified, sized and counted.

More than 90 per cent of sales are for export, with particular demand from pharmaceuticals and life sciences overseas.

Carr said: “As one of the fastest-growing bio-tech companies in the UK, it was imperative that we could increase our space at Minton House to meet product demand.”

Maureen Driver, Minton’s senior asset manager, added: “NanoSight is an inspirational business that UK plc should be proud of – the firm employs world-beating research scientists and is creating valuable and high-value jobs in the heart of Wiltshire.”

Salisbury-based commercial property consultancy Myddelton & Major is the sole agent for Minton Distribution Park.
