Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Nottingham firm moves to its new castle

East Midland’s firm Ramtech Electronics, a specialist ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) technology company best known for its wireless alarm systems for leisure and construction industries, has now completed its move to new premises in the heart of Nottingham following a period of sustained growth – and the move coincides with the company being chosen to provide some of it latest technology to the prestigious Nottingham Castle refurbishment. 

Since the company formed in Nottingham back in 1990, Ramtech Electronics has become a leader in its field. With customers in over 20 countries and an expanding range of unique wireless-based solutions for a range of industrial applications and sectors, the company is now set for a period of rapid growth.

The historical success has allowed the company to reinvest into its future, which has included moving into custom refurbished offices in the Castle Marina area of Nottingham.

“We have always been a Nottingham business and our investment in our own offices reflects our commitment to staying within the region and establishing our own Castle at Castle Marina,” reported Andy Hicks, the company’s Managing Director.

“Castle Marina gives our employees and customers alike better access to public transport and strong road links. We use many local suppliers, so it’s more convenient for them too.

“We stripped out the interior of the building so we could create an inspiring environment for all our staff – from accounts and logistics to research and development – that encourages creativity. It’s now a fantastic space for innovation and aligns with our company values, such as ‘Commitment’ and ‘Continuous Improvement, which has been core to our expansion.”

The company is also keen to encourage new talent into the business, a point central to future success according to Andy Hicks.

“We find that the East Midlands has so much to offer in terms of talented, skilled individuals for all sides of the business. The reputation the region has for its technological expertise helps too. Historically we have always had strong links to local Universities and Colleges - we have some fantastic apprentices here too and we’re always looking for talent at all levels.”

The move has coincided with Ramtech Electronics’ wireless ‘WES’ fire and medical alert system being chosen by G F Tomlinson, who are the main contractors on the Nottingham Castle refurbishment, to help ensure the Castle and its grounds are safeguarded in the event of a fire or medical emergency.

“Our WES units have been used on the likes of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt and the Leadenhall Building in London, but we are very proud to be connected with the Nottingham Castle Project – it’s the icon of the city and we’re very happy as a Nottingham business to have been chosen to support the safety of the site during its renovation”, comments Andy Hicks.

2019 will see the launch of the company’s latest range of leisure IoT products for UK holiday parks and the continued expansion of the fire and personal safety range, in addition to strengthening the workforce and developing further supplier relationships.
