Andor Technology plc. (Andor) is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland and operates at the high-value end of the global scientific digital camera market. Andor was setup in 1989 out of Queen's University in Belfast, and now employs over 260 people in 16 offices worldwide and distributes its products to 10,000 customers in 55 countries.
As portrayed in our mission statement, the principal business of Andor is the development and manufacture of high performance digital cameras. Further, we look to share our expertise to develop the best solutions for your light measuring problems, distributing our products to a customer base encompassing both the scientific research and industrial communities.
The founders of Andor, working in the Physics department of Queen's University, Belfast, found that the cameras then available were inadequate for their demanding applications, so developed their own. After using them in various imaging and spectroscopic applications they found they were being requested by researchers in other departments in Queen's and other universities. Andor was formed in 1989 to take advantage of these requirements.
