NETPark based Kromek join Theresa May on India trade mission

Tuesday, 08 November 2016

A firm specialising in radiation detection will accompany Theresa May to India on her first trade mission since taking over as Prime Minister.

Sedgefield-based Kromek, in County Durham, will fly out on the Prime Ministerial plane to join her at South Asia’s largest tech fair, which runs until Wednesday.

The company’s radiation technology is commonly used in airport security and nuclear safety checks, but is also used in medical imaging.

It was also created out of technology developed by Durham University.

The UK-India TECH summit, which takes place in New Delhi, will see the company seeking new buyers for its cutting-edge trade in medicine, security and nuclear markets.

It is to be hosted by Mrs May and Indian PM Narendra Modi, and also on the trade mission is Newcastle hi-tech healthcare firm QuantuMDx.

Speaking of the trip, the Mrs May said: “I was delighted last month to announce the Great Exhibition of the North would be hosted by Newcastle and Gateshead.

“But I want to boost the businesses of the North East as well as its culture.

“The North East firms I am taking to India are great examples of the hi-tech industries that will help drive the region’s economy in the future.”

The firms have been joined by 38 other small and medium-sized companies in seeking new business in one of the world’s biggest economies.
