Electronics company relocated to Tobay’s 8m EPIC Tech Hub




Three former Nortel engineers have moved their electronics business to Torbays’ 8 million innovation center.

Mike Badcott, Andrew Addy and John McKinnon each have over 30 years of experience in electronics and will grow their CAS antenna business and HEEDRA products from the Electronics and Photonics Innovation Center (EPIC) at Paigntons White Rock Business Park.

CAS Antenna is currently working with the University of Nottingham on the European Space Agency (ESA) project to improve the position accuracy of mobile phones.

Badcott and Addy also founded HEEDRA. It provides professional GPS / GNSS product and service distribution and consulting to engineers, researchers and staff in multiple industry sectors, including defense, aerospace, satellite and space.

As GPS / GNSS technology becomes more widespread throughout the industry and applications, businesses will continue to provide access to flexible, easy-to-use, and affordable test solutions.

Badcott said: Things have gone awry since the days of Nortel. We are now back near that location in a wonderful center.

I used one of EPIC’s small offices here and there is room for growth. We are working on many exciting projects that have the potential to grow very rapidly, using market-destroying technologies.

CAS Antenna has joined cutting-edge technology companies, including EPIC’s Bay Photonics. The building remains open throughout the pandemic, providing facilities for the microelectronics and photonics departments.

EPIC has seen unprecedented demand for lab space as companies are considering moving to a new dedicated electronics center. This has allowed companies to move production, R & D, and in some cases the entire organization to EPIC.

Wayne Roski, director of the center, said: Collaboration between tenants is really starting to flourish. Companies like CAS Antenna have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to help EPIC.

Since the blockade, EPIC has allowed seven new units and housed four new technology companies in the center. This includes two prominent members of the local Hi Tech Cluster.

Encouraging is the number of new jobs created since April, at least 10 since the start of the pandemic, which is great in these difficult times.

EPIC is an outstanding research hub, supporting technological innovation and facilitating collaborative activities between companies and research institutes.

Focusing on supporting promising companies, we encourage investment in Torbays’ microelectronics and photonics sectors, as well as the wider Southwest.

EPIC is partially funded by a 3 million grant from the Heart of the South West LEP Growth Deal. In addition, 1,375 million are secured by the European Regional Development Fund and 1.1 million by the Coastal Community Fund. This funding will support the Tobay Council’s investment of 2.5 million in the center.
