Last month AND opened its doors to customers, suppliers, friends & family to celebrate over 35 years of innovation. Our office was filled throughout the day with those we knew and some who were meeting us for the first time. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting so many bright minds from varying backgrounds & industries.
Guests were treated to the official unveiling of AND’s new-look refurb, complete with electronics-inspired artwork & a timeline art installation. The timeline captures the story from the AND of 1980 right up to present day and beyond. Of particular interest was where we expect to be in 2020.
Valerie Lynch, CEO says, “We are absolutely delighted with the results of the facelift. The artwork has brightened our working space providing the inspiration we need to progress on for the next 35 years”.
The AND team were kept busy throughout the day discussing their roles within the company & the exciting projects worked on. In addition to demonstrating our latest tech, including remote data node ‘C-Client’ & showing off our environmental test chamber. We also (very nobly) upheld our responsibility to lead the way in tackling the buffet lunch!
Over lunch open day visitors were treated to a presentation from Valerie who spoke about technology developments and inspiration through potted biographies of the mathematicians and computer scientists we have chosen as our room names. Whilst at coffee time there was a quirky talk from John Thorn about electrons.
The team would like to give a special thank you to David Probert from the Institute for Manufacturing in Cambridge for his kind words about CEO Valerie Lynch & the engaging talk he gave on managing & instigating R&D within companies.
