Renishaw opened its new 153,000-squarefoot Innovation Center in the U.K. The $31 million facility, located at company headquarters near Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, was formally opened in early July by Princess Anne.

The center gives the company additional space to house research and development and corporate services staff, as well as demonstration, training and conference facilities. The additional space also enables Renishaw's spectroscopy and laser calibration product lines to relocate to the company headquarters. This first phase of the development includes planning permission to expand by another 77,000 square feet. The company's investment program also includes the opening of a new R&D operation within the faculty of electrical engineering at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, as well as other new construction in the U.K.

As part of the celebration for the new Innovation Center, HRH, Princess Anne presented the company with its 18th Queen's Award, this one for Enterprise in the Innovation category.
