Startup flow sensor developer Flusso Ltd. (Cambridge, England) is expanding in Cambridge following its acquisition in August 2022 by a Chinese management company. The purchaser has been named as Shanghai Sierchi Enterprise Management Partnership LP.
Flusso, a spin off from Cambridge University, said it is creating 10 engineering and operational roles on top of eight positions created in recent months. The company is also leasing a further 2,000 square feet within its existing building, effectively doubling its mixed office and laboratory space; and investing in additional specialist test equipment to bring some previously outsourced product testing activities in-house.
The amount being spent on the expansion was not disclosed but it was described as the first phase of a plan for growth.
Andrea De Luca, CEO at Flusso said: “Flusso’s ambitious expansion plan will more than double the size of our technical team compared with last year, and will help accelerate the commercialisation of our flow and gas sensor product lines. We’ve recently added some critical new capabilities to our Cambridge team but are looking to bolster it further with additional skills in areas such as application engineering, firmware and software engineering, data science, materials and product quality.”
The new labs will be kitted out with equipment such as multiple temperature- and humidity-controlled test chambers, and a desktop wind tunnel for use in developing, characterising and validating the performance of flow sensor innovations.
