Q-Flo was formed, with a clear focus on bringing scientific innovation to market, primarily from the nanotechnology and materials science sectors.
Established by Prof Alan Windle and Dr Martin Pick in 2004 as a spin out from the University of Cambridge the company has used its own resources to bring its lead project to market. It has strong leadership through its board of directors with Barry Stickings OBE as Chair and Dai Hayward leading the executive team as CEO.
In delivering commercial opportunity and success from its carbon nanotube investment Q-Flo is seeking to work with development partners, customers and academic institutions to facilitating the introduction of the next generation of advanced composite materials and nano-enabled devices. End use development partnerships are being established to leverage real commercial advantage from the potential being offered by these exciting new materials.
Q-Flo's mission is unchanged: To work with academics and academic institutions to bring innovative ideas to the market place. Ideas which create products which are able to demonstrate real utility, real cost benefit and are developed from scalable and environmentally acceptable processes.
