Nusrat Ghani MP, Minister for Industry and Investment Security, visits SCITEK Consultants Ltd. in Derby

We were delighted to welcome Nusrat Ghani MP, the Minister for Industry and Investment Security, to our site in Derby on Thursday last week.

During her visit, the Minister toured our facilities, met with our Managing Director Marios Christodoulou and other staff members, and was shown a demonstration of several research and development rigs developed at SCITEK, including a number developed in collaboration with Rolls-Royce.

The visit also showcased SCITEK’s research turbofan engine, which was first established as part of an Aerospace Technology Institute funded project.

The improvements brought by our custom-built new facility, which was finalised in Dec 2019, were also showcased. The increased space has allowed for the company to bid for larger, higher value projects.

In recent years the company has seen rapid growth in renewable energy projects for transport and power generation, with an increasing number of the systems we have made for our customers specifically aimed at helping them reduce the environmental impact of their products, an area that SCITEK is actively participating in.

Minister for Industry and Investment Security Nusrat Ghani said:

“Our aerospace sector is one of the crown jewels of the British economy, and our well-earned reputation as a global centre of excellence for design and production has meant that the world has come to us for some of the most innovative technology.

“The work at SCITEK Consultants, supported through BEIS’s Aerospace Technology Institute, is a prime example of what this means in practice, and of the big impact smaller businesses can have. Their cutting-edge projects are driving growth and supporting jobs in Derby, and beyond.”

Marios Christodoulou, Managing Director of SCITEK Consultants commented:

“For the last 25 years SCITEK has provided innovative solutions in aerospace and we look forward to continuing to support our native industries as the world transitions to a more sustainable future. We feel that our contributions go some way in sustaining and enhancing UK’s reputation as a centre of excellence and innovation in aerospace.”
