Link Microtek new premises


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Link Microtek
: 01 June, 2009  (Company News)
Link Microtek, the manufacturer and supplier of RF and microwave components,
subsystems and instrumentation, has successfully completed its move into new
premises in the centre of Basingstoke.
For the first time since it was established in 1995, the company now has all
its operations - including the design and manufacturing activities of its
Engineering Division - under one roof.

Link Microtek acquired the building, High Point, in 2007 and since then has
been going through the process of expanding and altering it to meet the
company's specific requirements, as well as completely refurbishing it to
bring it into line with the latest Building Regulations.

Originally providing 7000ft2 of floor space, this has now been increased by
nearly 50 percent to 10,000ft2 over three floors. The main part of the
expansion was necessary to accommodate the Engineering Division workshop,
which had always been located on a separate site since the formation of the
division in 1998.

Link Microtek's managing director Steve Cranstone is very pleased with the
end result: 'The workshop is required for fabricating the wide variety of
components and systems designed by Link Microtek, and by integrating the
Engineering Division with the rest of the company we have dramatically
improved internal communications and efficiency.

'The acquisition of High Point was a major step forward for the company, and
now that the building works have been completed, it provides us with all the
facilities we will need for the foreseeable future.'

In addition to the engineering workshop, the ground floor includes a test
and assembly area, an instrument service and calibration centre, a clean
test room with environmental test facilities, and a stores and despatch
area. The first floor accommodates the engineering design department,
together with sales, administration, accounts, management offices, and an IT
department whose responsibilities include running a new VOIP communications
system and hosting Link Microtek's websites. On the second floor is a
training room, a rooftop antenna test area, a boardroom and kitchen
facilities.

Steve Cranstone again: 'All the building services installed as part of the
refurbishment - from the thermal management system to the lighting - have
been chosen to minimise their environmental impact, with the result that we
have achieved an excellent EPC rating of 42 (Category B emissions).'

Situated just half a minute from Basingstoke shopping centre and offering
easy access to the railway station and motorway network, High Point is
proving to be a popular location with both staff and customers.
