Amino expands to new HQ in Cambridge

Amino Communications has moved its global HQ to new, larger premises on the Buckingway Business Park, just a short distance away from its previous offices in Longstanton, near Cambridge. The 12,500sq.ft. will accommodate the company’s expanding business development and engineering teams following the significant sales success of its price-competitive next generation set-top boxes.

Bob Giddy, Amino’s CEO, commented: ”With more than 80 companies currently trialling our set-top boxes our workforce has expanded to a point where it simply outgrew the old premises. We are confident of our prospects for the future and this new HQ will enable us to expand and operate such that it will facilitate increasing our order book even further.” The company has already transferred the bulk of its operations from its old facility to the new site.

Amino’s range of set-top boxes for Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) combine low cost with maximum functionality and are designed to accelerate the implementation of networked digital video systems. The company recently announced a third successful round of funding, totalling $3.5million, and also won a Red Dot design award for the first set-top box in the series, the AmiNET100.

Amino is an electronic systems designer specialising in products for multimedia distribution such as on-line digital video and audio, as well as data reception. Its range of small, low cost, high functionality set-top boxes and gateway products are available as manufactured units or as licensable designs for hotels and hospitality markets, healthcare, retail and education, as well as networked and broadcast markets. The company offers a shared risk and reward approach that enables the rapid implementation of cost-effective services.

Amino, based in Swavesey, near Cambridge, was founded in 1997 and is privately held. It has received £10m in funding from business angels and institutional investors.
