Sci-Tech Daresbury’s Quantum Science is continuing its expansion plans in the Japanese market following the forming of a partnership.
Quantum Science Ltd, a nanomaterials company in the field of semiconductors, biotechnology and water treatment, has formed a partnership with the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO).
JETRO is a government-related organisation that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world.
Japan is one of the leading countries in semiconductor and electronic innovation and is therefore a hugely important market for Quantum Science’s quantum dot technology, known as INFIQ® QDs.
Quantum Science is already closely engaged with over five Japanese companies sampling INFIQ® materials into the market, and work is underway to partner with these companies to integrate INFIQ® technology into their future products.
The JETRO accreditation will enable Quantum Science to significantly bolster its presence in the Japanese Market and represents another milestone following its expansion into a larger facility at Sci-Tech Daresbury earlier this year.
Dr Hao Pang, the CEO of Quantum Science, said: “As the INFIQ® technology has gained initial success in Japan and international markets, the support from JETRO represents another step forward in Quantum Science’s growing global ambition and evidence of the huge international interest in our technology.”
A spokesman for JETRO said: “JETRO welcomes Quantum Science to the Japanese market and looks forward to supporting the company’s technology to grow and advance the image sensor industry in Japan and in international markets.”
John Downes, chief executive officer of Langtree and chairman of Sci-Tech Daresbury, added: “This latest breakthrough into the crucial Japanese market is further evidence that this is a highly innovative company that sits at the vanguard of the nanomaterials market. “
