Interlink Electronics Inc. announced plans to establish an advanced engineering team in Scotland, a vital step in further extending the company's European presence and customer base. The new group will be based out of an innovation hub near the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Initially, the multidisciplinary team will consist of five engineers, with plans to add additional personnel and resources as the location ramps up operations. To support the group, Interlink is establishing a new U.K.-based entity Interlink Electronics Limited with the assistance of Scottish Enterprise, the country's national economic development agency. Professor Graham Wren, Interlink's strategic technical advisor, also serves as the University of Strathclyde's director of major projects and special advisor to the principal and vice-chancellor, which will help provide the company with access to local talent and business opportunities. Interlink's new European operations epitomize its ongoing commitment to strategic growth around the globe. In just the last year, the company opened a new world-class R&D center and advanced materials science lab in Camarillo, Calif., as well as its new corporate headquarters in Irvine, Calif. These upgraded physical footprints along with the addition of new personnel and companywide resources provide the necessary infrastructure to pursue opportunities in new industries, offer a greater range of in-house solutions, and develop new proprietary technology.
