DOCAN at Thornton Science Park

As part of our growth – we are excited to announce that we have just opened our second office based at Thornton Science Park – Chester.

Five or so years ago, Chester University opened the first new engineering and science faculty in 20 years in the UK. They then took over the Shell R&D site which became Thornton Science Park. This high-tech site has 1.1M sq ft of space under roof and is equipped for innovative and growing businesses in the energy, environmental, automotive and advanced manufacturing sectors.

We now have access to all the high tech site facilities. We will hopefully be able to benefit from the opportunities the university and the high tech companies on site will offer us.

Of course, with this extra space we can grow as a business – with new team members starting shortly.

We can also aggressively develop our rapid prototyping and reverse engineering services with many of the required technologies available to us here.

With this move, we are also now looking for sales and business development people who can help sell our services and large portfolio of software. We would also like to hear from bright engineers – 2 to 5 years post graduate with a good mechanical degree or similar.

From the DOCAN management team.
