QLM’s new offices in Bristol are part of the HERE complex, a thriving business ecosystem in Brislington. As well as a major increase in office space, granting headroom for further expansion in the future, the new location has dedicated laboratory space for the continuing R&D program, and a balcony looking out over the city that has already been co-opted as an “outdoor laboratory”, verifying the quantum gas camera’s long-term robustness to the outdoors and complementing the ongoing in-house testing of the camera performance in varying environmental conditions.

According to QLM CEO Murray Reed, expansion to the HERE offices represnts a crucial step in QLM’s commercial journey: “UnitDX was a great incubator but our HERE offices give us room to work closer together and to expand. They will form our Bristol R&D centre as we expand Test and Operations in Wales and our presence around the world”

An indication of the importance of the opportunities in measuring greenhouse gas emissions in US-based energy operations, and mindful of the time difference associated with supporting them from the UK, QLM has established a formal US entity with its incorporation in Delaware. The company’s incorporation paves the way for direct sales and support operations to be established once the company expands according to demand.

Aaron Van Pelt, QLM’s US-based CCO, indicated the importance of US incorporation to the commercial growth of the company. “QLM is truly a global business with customers around the globe. Having a presence in the US is our first step at such global coverage and is critical since so much of our business will be here.”

The expansion of premises is an indication of QLM’s growth ambitions, providing the space and facilities for staff numbers to grow with demand,
