Abing­don-head­quar­tered Ox­ford In­stru­ments (OXIG) is look­ing to drive growth and im­proved re­turns for the ben­e­fit of all stake­hold­ers as they em­bed clearly de­fined core ca­pa­bil­i­ties across its busi­nesses in mar­ket in­ti­macy, in­no­va­tion and prod­uct de­vel­op­ment, cus­tomer sup­port, and op­er­a­tional ex­cel­lence.

The Group is struc­tured around three sec­tors to sup­port their cus­tomer and ap­pli­ca­tion fo­cus:

Ma­te­ri­als & Char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion,

which sup­plies prod­ucts and solutions that en­able the fabri­ca­tion and char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion of ma­te­ri­als and de­vices down to the atomic scale. This sec­tor pre­dom­i­nantly sup­ports cus­tomers across ap­plied R&D as well as they pro­duc­tion and man­u­fac­ture of high tech­nol­ogy prod­ucts and de­vices. Re­search & Dis­cov­ery, which pro­vides ad­vanced solutions that cre­ate unique en­vi­ron­ments and en­able imag­ing and an­a­lyt­i­cal mea­sure­ments down to the molec­u­lar and sub-atomic level, pre­dom­i­nantly used in sci­en­tific re­search and ap­plied R&D.

Ser­vice & Health­care, which pro­vides cus­tomer ser­vice and sup­port for the Group’s own prod­ucts, and the ser­vice, sale and rental of third-party health­care imag­ing sys­tems.

CORE MARKETS

Ox­ford In­stru­ments has re­cently up­dated its mar­ket fo­cus struc­ture and has aligned it with serv­ing its core end markets in:

Health­care & Life Sci­ence,

where growth is driven by de­mand for im­prove­ments in dis­ease de­tec­tion and the un­der­stand­ing of fun­da­men­tal mech­a­nisms.

Semi­con­duc­tor & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, where there is a fo­cus on speed, se­cu­rity and ca­pac­ity.

Quan­tum Tech­nol­ogy,

where the ex­plo­ration of the regime where quan­tum ef­fects dom­i­nate are rad­i­cally chang­ing the ‘rule book’ of what’s pos­si­ble.

En­vi­ron­ment, which in­cludes greener pro­duc­tion, re­cy­cling, de­tec­tion of haz­ardous sub­stances in soil, agri­cul­ture and food. En­ergy, where im­proved ef­fi­cien­cies and sus­tain­abil­ity
