Southampton Appoints UK Director

SOUTHAMPTON, U.K. -- Dr Steve Norman has left Pirelli, where he was Director of Engineering and Quality, to head up UK operations at Southampton Photonics, the expanding fibre-optic components start-up. He brings to the company over 20 years of experience in the volume manufacturing of fibre optics products at Pirelli. Southampton Photonics was formed in mid-2000 with initial funding of $55 million and is currently building up design and production facilities in Chilworth, near Southampton, as well as in the USA.

"The proven ability to scale manufacturing operations to volume production will be critical to the company’s success," said Don Spalinger, President and co-founder of Southampton Photonics. "Steve brings enormous experience and an established track record in the successful commercialisation of specialty fibre technology."
