New Managing Director for CoolLED Ltd.

Photonics Buyers' GuideNew Managing Director for CoolLED LtdCoolLED Ltd, the first company to introduce LED illumination to microscopy, has a new Managing Director. With the company’s recent purchase by the Judges Scientific group, Jim Beacher has been promoted from Sales & Marketing Director to Managing Director. Jim graduated from Strathclyde University with a BSc. and joined a local materials research company which had been spun-out from Glasgow University. He then moved to the thin film coating industry and for many years supplied optical filters for commercial, military and medical applications. He had his own business during the Telecoms boom providing thin film deposition equipment which was used in electron microscopy. He moved into light microscopy when he joined CoolLED to develop their business pioneering LED illumination for the fluorescence technique now prevalent in the life sciences.

The company is enjoying strong growth as solid-state illumination replaces the mercury-based lamps used previously. Commenting on the company’s acquisition and his new position, Jim Beacher said, “The investment by Judges shows that CoolLED has a great future. We are excited by the opportunities open to our technologies and I look forward to leading the team to greater success.”
