  • Carl Zeiss Expands Cambridge Operations

Feb 2013
CAMBRIDGE, England, Feb. 27, 2013 — Carl Zeiss has expanded its operations at Coldhams Lane in Cambridge — home to Carl Zeiss Microscopy Ltd. — with new application labs, sales offices and customer facilities, the company said this week.

Cambridge Scientific Instruments, which later became Carl Zeiss Microscopy Ltd., developed the first scanning electron microscope in Cambridge in 1965 in partnership with the University of Cambridge. The business has occupied the Coldhams Lane site for years, and growth in international orders spurred the acquisition of neighboring parcels to increase production of scanning electron microscopes, the company said.

The expansion allowed the UK sales and service business, Carl Zeiss Ltd., to relocate from Welwyn Garden City to Cambridge to consolidate as one larger Zeiss campus, the company said. The new building at 509 Coldhams is now headquarters for both Carl Zeiss Microscopy Ltd. and Carl Zeiss Ltd. The facility includes five application laboratories for electron and light and microscopes as well as demonstration and training facilities for surgical microscopes, medical diagnostic equipment, camera lenses, binoculars and scopes.

"Customers from several of the Carl Zeiss business groups, including Microscopy, Medical Technology, Camera Lenses and Sports Optics, will be able to visit us in Cambridge, the hub for innovative technology, for product demonstrations and expert applications support in our new facilities," said Paul Adderley, Carl Zeiss Ltd. managing director.

The Cambridge site is one of 20 Zeiss construction projects currently under way worldwide. For more information, visit: http://microscopy.zeiss.com
