Material expansion at Stoke technology company

New recruits at Lucideon

Materials technology company Lucideon is on course for major expansion with plans to grow its team of scientists, researchers and support staff by more than 20% this year.

It has already brought on board 34 new members of staff this year with a further 20 recruits expected to join by the end of the year.

It brings the team to 240, with the majority of the new jobs created at Lucideon’s global headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent.

Tony Kinsella, Lucideon’s chief executive, said: “Lucideon is world-renowned for its expertise in the aerospace, defence, construction, nuclear, healthcare and technical ceramics sectors, and we have ambitions to grow globally.

“We are currently a £20m business but are confident we can develop to between £60m and £80m over the next few years.”

Among the new recruits joining Lucideon are three accomplished PhD graduates working from the company’s Stoke-on-Trent HQ – Dr Samira Bostanchi, Dr Agata Lapa and Dr Elliot Douse.
