A high-tech company that sells its cutting edge products across the globe has been hailed by an MP as a shining example of how regional support can help a business of any size to achieve its ambitions.
Southam-based Silson, which makes ultra-thin membranes for use in science around the world, has just celebrated its 25th anniversary with the unveiling of the latest phase of its development.
Funding for this project is the result of a successful grant application to the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) under the CWLEP Business Development priority.
This funding, managed by the Rural Payments Agency, part financed the development of the first floor of the company’s headquarters into office space and further laboratories.

We are excited to announce that Silson have been awarded an innovation grant through the Aerospace UP programme!
Our aim is to develop a prototype Silicon carbide (SiC) pressure sensor for harsh environments utilising our microfabrication expertise to overcome the challenges of high costs, poor scalability and difficult processing normally associated with SiC.
