Sensor City welcomes new cohort of international tenants


Sensor City welcomes new cohort of international tenants


"The on-site laboratory facilities and extensive support from the team makes Sensor City the perfect place to take us through this next phase of growth. "
Johanna Mylius, Managing Director at VD



Global innovation hub Sensor City is positioning Liverpool City Region as an international leader in Industry 4.0 with a cohort of new tenants. The latest organisations to call Sensor City home are, Visual5d (V5D), Render Nation, Nova, Pulse Systems, Sensicon and Aerodrums.

 

Having worked with construction giants Kier, Balfour Beattie, Morgan Sindall and Laing O’Rourke, V5D is widely recognised as a trailblazer in 4D structural sequencing.

 

“With an established presence across North America, UK and Ireland, we are now keen to evolve our services further,” explained Johanna Mylius, Managing Director at V5D. “The on-site laboratory facilities and extensive support from the team makes Sensor City the perfect place to take us through this next phase of growth.”

 

Further cementing its global influence, Sensor City has also welcomed Render Nation, an international production support and 3D rendering expert. The company hopes to capitalise on the connection and collaboration opportunities at Sensor City to develop its computer-generated images, animations and augmented reality (AR) apps for its clients.

 

Dr Joanne Phoenix, interim executive director at Sensor City said: “2019 has already seen Sensor City undergo a period of significant growth. This is largely due to the fact that it is now attracting organisations with a diverse range of products and offerings, that operate on both a national and international scale. Whilst we are still very much committed to promoting Liverpool City Region as leading the Industry 4.0 revolution, we are also focused on building our international presence. This latest cohort of tenants is really helping to cement that global vision.”

 

Keen to stay true to its key offering, Sensor City continues to champion Liverpool City Region’s home-grown talent in the tech, digital and creative industries too.

 

Liverpool-based tech start-up co-foundry Nova has recently moved into the Sensor City building to help identify and support local entrepreneurs by developing ideas into successful, scalable tech start-ups in sectors including healthcare, fintech, education and eGaming.

 

Meanwhile, Aerodrums has taken up residency to develop a next generation of products and grow its team, with Sensicon hoping to use its Sensor City status to help start-ups and SMEs in developing product to market strategies.

 

Having first moved into Sensor City in January 2018 on a hot desk basis, sensor innovators Pulse Systems has now taken up permanent office space within the building to develop its business activities further. This progression demonstrates the intended natural flow of SMEs through Sensor City, with Member companies receiving business and technical support to help them grow at pace.

 

As a joint venture between Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Liverpool, Sensor City is a global hub that works with hi-tech businesses on new systems and applications using sensor technology and the IoT. Having welcomed a total number of 15 new tenants and 56 hot deskers since its launch in 2017, Sensor City is set to further bridge the knowledge gap between new disruptive technologies and local enterprise.
