Press Statement from Innos

Innos: Official Statement
Monday 31st October 2005


It has been widely reported today that there was a fire at the University of Southampton’s Mountbatten Building on Sunday 30th October 2005. At this time I would like to reassure all associated with Innos that we have procedures in place to ensure that, despite the severity of the incident, Innos remains fully operational.

Our headquarters at the adjacent Gower Building were unaffected by the fire. The skills and expertise that has established Innos as the UK’s leading research and development company, delivering expertise in silicon, MEMS and nanotechnologies remain unaffected.

It is clear the effects of the blaze upon our cleanroom and equipment, that was housed in the Mountbatten Building, has had a major impact on our ability to complete processing and production from this site. However we have been quick to implement emergency procedures and are working closely with cleanrooms across the UK to transfer existing and new projects to these facilities, whilst the full situation is assessed.

I would like to thank the team at Innos, the University of Southampton and the emergency services for their continual support during this time. We will be speaking with all of our customers over the next few days to ensure that everyone is kept fully informed of events.

Andrew Monk
CEO, Innos
